Hear from a few of our clients:

“The International Student market is an important vertical market for Vodafone Australia and it is for this reason we have partnered with Insider Guides. Together we share a common goal, to bridge the gap that exists for students who are in a new country, studying and forging new relationships. Our role is to support students by keeping them connected, and Insider Guides provides them up-to-date local information and guidance that makes their transition smoother.”

‘While it’s hard to measure return on investment from print advertising, student and industry feedback has indicated that students are getting a lot of value out of the guide. It‘s clear we need to be in that environment, and we are confident that the association positions RMIT as a leader in international education.’

“The City of Melbourne is a proud supporter of the Insider Guides since 2011. The guides provide valuable information that helps international students settle into the Melbourne way of life, and is a key element for student welcome programs in the city. Students can access this publication at their educational institutions, Council libraries and even at the Student Welcome Desk at Melbourne Airport. The Insider Guides is informative, fun to read and truly reflects the needs of international students.
