Awards 2021

International Student of the Year Finalists. Watch the video and hear from our finalists.

Ider (Eddie) Khoskhuu - 2021 winner

Bachelor of Business Administration  

Eddie is a passionate and community-focused person, who’s made a significant impact to Holmesglen’s Student Association and ambassador program, and as a Council of International Students Australia representative. 

Described as a friendly, engaging and optimistic student by his teachers, Eddie wants to use his education to one day run a non-profit school in his home country, Mongolia. He is well on his way to achieving this goal while working as an intern at the Mongolian National Commission for UNESCO. 

“The course has helped me find my passion. I’ve learned that raising your voice and being an active individual is crucial. Holmesglen has been there to listen and help me,” says Eddie. 


Matheus Gabriel Ladeira 

Bachelor of Sport Business 

Matheus Gabriel Ladeira’s love of soccer led him to a Bachelor of Sport Business, which will give him a great start in pursuing a career in sport back home in Brazil.  

During his course, which included an internship at South Yarra Soccer Club, Matheus gained new coaching licenses and sports administration skills. At just 21, Matheus was named coach of the Under-18 women’s team.  

“Matheus’s strengths would have to be his passion and motivation. It is incredibly evident how much he enjoys doing what he does and makes the most of every opportunity,” says South Yarra Soccer Club President Ashley Good. 


Sonela Raggoo

Bachelor of Business (Accounting) 

Sonela Raggoo’s student-first approach has supported the success of Holmesglen’s Online Community, inaugural Student Assocation, and a promising international student volunteer program. 

Sonela’s teachers say she buoyed the spirits of her peers during a challenging 2020, where she organised various events as an Online Community Facilitator. She also advocated for the student voice as a member of the new Student Assocation. 

Sonela is also involved with The Glo Project – an initiative that helps international students find work with Australian start-up businesses.  

“My course has changed the way I used to think. I have acquired a better understanding of the business world and I’m confident in entering the workforce,” says Sonela.
