This guide has been developed primarily to showcase Australia´s expertise as a leading provider of quality education and training services. With a vast array of educational providers available in Australia, students have a wonderful selection of study options from which to choose. Ideally this guide will assist in that process with detailed information on the institutions as well as information about the states and territories that make up Australia.
A Word from the Australian Minister for Education
The Australian International Education and Training Guide 2014/15 is an extremely valuable publication for all students interested in studying and engaging in training in Australia.
Australia is a world leader in education and our students come from almost 200 countries worldwide who are currently studying in Australian universities, vocational education and training institutions, English language colleges and schools.
This important guide provides a comprehensive directory for all educational institutions in Australia and its broad reach allows the directory to be a useful guide for prospective students.
Choosing an educational institution can be a daunting task, with many institutions offering differing needs and services. For international students, this guide provides an informative starting place on the many fine aspects of our education system.
The guide also serves as a valuable resource to those students wishing to engage in research opportunities within Australia. Australia´s universities have been constantly recognised for their innovation in research activities and the support of international students will greatly benefit the important work they do.
I encourage all prospective students to utilise and read this guide to ensure they allow for their best potential to be realised in Australia.
It gives me great pleasure in providing this foreword and wish all prospective students all the very best.
The Hon Christopher Pyne MP
Federal Member for Sturt
Australian Minister for Education
