2022 WA International VET Student of the Year

The CISWA WA International VET Student of the Year Award is about recognising the significant contribution that international students make to the Western Australian community.

CISWA seeks to acknowledge an international student, who has demonstrated academic excellence and has contributed to enhancing the student experience both in the school and in the community.

In selecting the recipient of this award, the student’s achievements and contributions during their time as an international student in Australia are taken into consideration. Additional weight is given to any activities which promote interaction with Australian students and with the local community.
