Victoria University has provisioned education assistance to Timor-Leste through education and scholarship opportunities, a specialised training course delivered in-country, and joint conferences focussing on the development of the independent nation.
Many of these activities are the result of our association with institutions such as the Dili Institute of Technology and the Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e.
