Global Victoria (Victorian State Government), together with The University of Melbourne, are offering students the opportunity to work on a virtual, two-week real-world business experience. 

The 2020 Global Victoria Intellect Program (GVIP) connects student teams to undertake international market research/analysis projects for Victorian Exporters in February 2020. 

Through the Global Victoria Intellect Program, students will act as ‘business consultants’ to conduct a market research analysis for a Victorian Exporter. In this extra-curricular learning program, students will be required to commit to 25 hours over the two-week program experience from 17 February to 28 February 2020 prior to the commencement of Semester 1, 2020.

Student teams can meet in person or collaborate completely online to complete the project. 

Please note: GVIP is an unpaid, extra-curricular skills development opportunity.


To be eligible for this opportunity you must:

  • Be a current University of Melbourne student, at the time of application and during the program dates from 17 February to 28 February 2020
  • Not be in your first semester of study at The University of Melbourne at the time of application
  • Be academically in 'Good Standing' (e.g. not currently 'At Risk' or 'on Probation')
  • Not be participating in the Live Projects 2020 February Intake 9 program (due to conflicting dates, we are unable to consider Live Projects Intake 9 participants)

This opportunity is open to both domestic and international students, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students and PhD candidates. 

Fluency in languages additional to English is looked on favourably.
