EVENT POSTPONED - DATE TO BE CONFIRMED


Since the first international students arrived post World War II, the Australian international education sector has been growing steadily to the 600,000 plus student-visa holders onshore today. In addition, many more are studying at offshore campuses run by Australian education providers. The industry is estimated to be worth over $30 billion to the Australian economy, and employs over 130,000 workers, making it Australia’s third biggest export market.

For a glimpse inside this thriving industry within Australia & Canada, please join us as respected industry leaders share their thoughts on:

  • the predominate reasons for ongoing success;
  • possible threats to Australia’s success - including the growing Canadian market & policy turbulence;
  • diversifying the market;
  • effects on other industries such as tourism, etc.;
  • and candid ‘where to now’ insights.

This event is aimed at anyone involved in the education industry, including education provider management, marketing & administration personnel, education agents, academics, and policy-makers.

This evening is additionally suited to anyone interested in take-aways that can be applied to their own industries.
