Come and join our Study in Australia fair
4th August 2016
On 8 October 2016, I cordially invite Japanese students, parents and working professionals to attend the Australian Embassy hosted annual Study in Australia fair. Representatives from over 60 universities, vocational education and training institutions, English language schools and high schools from Australia will be participating.
The fair builds on the strong bilateral education relationship that Australia and Japan enjoy across a diverse range of areas. From school study tours to science research linkages, Australia and Japan have a long history of collaboration, sharing knowledge and creating new learning experiences for students.
Each year, some 35,000 Japanese high school students travel to Australia for short-term study tours. In 2015, nearly 24,000 Japanese students studied English or undertook a qualification such as a university degree or diploma at a college in Australia.
Australia has one of the most internationalised learning environments in the world with one in four university students being a foreign national. In addition to a diverse range of study options, our cities consistently rank as the most liveable places in the world owing to Australia’s safe environment and high quality of life.
Australia is the top sister-school partner of choice for Japan with over 650 school-to-school arrangements in place, and 475 formal partnerships between Australian and Japanese universities.
By studying in Australia you will join a 2.5 million-strong global alumni that grows each year. In 2015, 375,000 international students studied in Australia including 400 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships recipients.
We welcome you to join us for this once-a-year chance to meet with representatives from Australian education institutions and learn how a study in Australia experience can benefit you.
