The International Training Provider of the Year Award recognises a registered training organisation that has demonstrated outstanding achievement in all aspects of the delivery of vocational education and training to full-fee paying international students.
Box Hill Institute is a leading Victorian vocational education and training provider offering a variety of courses to both local and international students. In 2013, it had 37,000 student enrolments, including 6000 offshore enrolments and more than 600 inbound students from more than 50 countries.
In November 2013, Box Hill Institute was named the International Training Provider of the Year for its outstanding delivery of vocational education and training and training to full-fee paying international students.
"Winning International Training Provider of the Year acknowledges that the work we’re doing in the international area is important." Box Hill Institute’s interim Chief Executive Officer, Joe Piper, said.
"These awards send a message of how important international education is, not only to Australia, to Victoria and Box Hill but to all of the developing countries and regions we work in."
Box Hill Institute is committed to internationalisation and its approach to this commitment encompasses four pillars: inbound international students, international projects, transnational delivery and global studies and citizenship.
Box Hill Institute’s international inbound students are supported prior to and throughout their training, with a dedicated team of international student support staff providing accommodation, language, academic and social support.
Box Hill Institute’s income from all international activity represents approximately 19 per cent of its overall income, making its international arm a significant and strategic part of its operations.
