Description

Cash cows or human capital? Perspectives on international students in Australia



International education is big business. With record numbers of foreign students choosing to study here, it is now Australia’s third-highest export earner.

What does this mean for universities now and in the future? What are universities’ responsibilities once students arrive? And are universities in danger of exposing themselves to risk by relying too heavily on this revenue stream?

This seminar will gather experts in the field to explore the key issues around the booming international education sector, and how institutions can capitalise on it while preparing for potential changes.

The seminar will be held in a purpose-designed venue at News Corp Australia’s head office in Surry Hills, Sydney.




Speaker line-up:

Peter Mackey, Director, Trade, International Education and Small Business Operations, NSW Department of Industry

Peter will present on the NSW Government’s work, through Study NSW, to support international education in the state. His presentation will focus on the importance of delivering a positive experience for international students during their studies, and government’s role in fostering collaboration to achieve this.


Linus Faustin, 2017 NSW International Student of the Year

Linus’ efforts in promoting awareness of issues facing young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, and his passion for social justice and diversity, led to him being named the 2017 NSW International Student of the year.

At the seminar Linus will discuss ways that institutions can help international students studying in Australia. He will share his experiences as an international student, firstly at UTS and now at Bond University, where he is currently studying a Master of Construction degree.


Ruby Biscuit, director, Macquarie University International College

Ruby’s varied experience within a range of complex and rapidly-changing sector segments has resulted in a distilled understanding of student support needs and best practice solutions.

Ruby has worked in International Education since 2001 within both private and public institutions delivering Higher Education Foundation and Diploma, ELICOS, vocational and High School Preparation programs. She currently oversees the delivery of the Macquarie University English Language, Foundation and Diploma programs. Ruby is also deputy chair of the English Australia board and co-convenor of the IEAA Pathways Special Interest Group.


Aleksandr Voninski, Higher Education: Researcher, Consultant (Edified Education), Former Executive Director – International (UNSW Sydney), Former Deputy Director – China (Study Group)

Aleksandr will present his views on push/pull factors in International Higher Education – what is pushing student consumer buyer behaviour and pulling institutions to build brand, acquire and retain students and deliver better graduate outcomes. The presentation will cover what various strategies are being implemented across the sector and what resonates with prospective international students, their parents and agents.

[New] Gabriele Suder, international trade and investment researcher and Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne Business School

Dr Suder will present her in-depth research into the impact of Free Trade Agreements on the sector and on diversity in talent recruitment. She will focus on the non-tariff barrier conditions that FTAs provide, and that create and strengthen the momentum in market access and expansion for Australia’s services industries, both in-bound and out-bound.

[New] Professor Alex Frino, Deputy Vice Chancellor of Global Strategy, University of Wollongong

Alex is one of the most widely published finance academics in the world, with over 100 papers in leading scholarly journals. He has won over $10 million in national competitive research funding and is frequently cited by the major mainstream global press.

He will present on updated forecasts and expected international student arrivals over the next decade.
