WINNING STRATEGIES FOR THE FUTURE OF AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION IN CHINA

  Tuesday 18 Sep - 1:00pm - 3:00pm

  Princeton Room, Bond University,

With a progressive world-class education system and a multicultural and vibrant society, Australia has succeeded in attracting Chinese students from primary through to tertiary levels. As our nation’s third largest export, the international education sector is forecasted to grow and drive economic growth in other sectors including tourism, investment and export consumption.

While the United States, the UK, Canada and our neighbour New Zealand consistently improve their offerings to attract Chinese students, Australia needs to be more strategic and long-sighted about what our international education delivers. The Honourable John Brumby, ACBC National President and Catriona Jackson, Chief Executive of Universities Australia will present the keynote speeches at this business luncheon followed by a high-level panel discussion joined by Professor Terry O’Neill, Executive Dean of Bond Business School, Shannon Willoughby, Chief Executive Officer of Study Gold Coast and Janelle Chapman, Executive Director of TAFE Queensland International. Our highly experienced speakers will share their thought-provoking ideas on how this critical sector can further develop and engage the China market.
