In a first by any foreign government, Australia on Friday launched a website in Hindi aimed at providing better information access to families of prospective Indian students in Victoria.
The Hindi version of 'Study Melbourne' portal -- http://www.studymelbourne.vic.gov.au/hindi -- was launched by visiting Victorian minister Louise Asher, who is leading a 60-member business delegation on her first trip abroad after formation of a new government there.
"It is the world's first website of a foreign government in Hindi. Though knowledge of English is imperative for students there, the website aims to provide information to the families and parents of those students in their mother tongue.
"It will help them in better understanding of facilities and prospects in Victorian universities," Asher, minister for innovation said while launching the portal.
