Government announces 10-year strategy for Australian international education market aimed at recovery

Article Extract:

On Friday the federal government released on its 10-year strategy for international education, hoping to position the country for a robust pandemic recovery and “create new opportunities” to foster a more diverse and sustainable sector.

Called the Australian strategy for International Education 2021-2030, it not only discusses measures to support a swift return of international students when borders reopen on December 1 this year, but also outlines ways to make the sector more sustainable in the medium term.

The Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) looks forward to the government’s new strategy, saying it will create “an environment that will support overseas student enrolment growth with independent higher education and vocational training providers”.

“ITECA welcomes the new strategy that will be critical to helping independent higher education and vocational training providers that support international students. They have been walloped in the past eighteen months, so the release of the new strategy could not have come at a better time,” ITECA’s chief executive Troy Williams said.

Williams also agrees with the strategy’s focus on diversification, arguing that the sector’s dependence on a limited number of overseas markets is “not sustainable”.
