About the Higher Education Program

Participants in the Higher Education program will attend the International Exhibition and Conference on Higher Education (IECHE), the largest annual higher education exhibition in the Kingdom.

The conference provides an opportunity to meet with the major Saudi and regional scholarship providers as well as students from across Saudi Arabia wanting to learn about international higher education opportunities.

As education roadshows are not permitted in Saudi Arabia, the IECHE provides an opportunity for Victorian providers to meet with prospective students.The Victorian Government will provide a Study Melbourne booth at IECHE to support Victorian universities.
