In October, the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade)

Launched a new global campaign promoting Study Australia options available to international students via a new course-search tool.

The Shine with Australia campaign features high-achieving alumni whose academic and professional journeys showcase the experience of an Australian education. The campaign invites prospective students to follow in these alumni’s footsteps and discover their future by studying in Australia.

Mr Ravin Mirchandani, Executive Chairman Ador Powertron, India, and Co-founder of Acusensus, Australia, recalled that studying in Australia changed his life, both academically and socially. Dr Reema Joshi, Program Head, Digital Health and Telemedicine, HOPS Healthcare, said her decision to study public health in Australia was based on the high-ranking of many Australian universities in her field. Ms Chi Vu, now Global Retail Engagement Product Lead for Google credited her education with kickstarting her successful marketing career and giving her the confidence to take professional risks.

Students considering a higher education in Australia can find these and other alumni stories online on the Study Australia portal as well as on the relevant social media channels.

Shine with Australia is designed to reach a potential audience of 31.6 million people. Austrade’s Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner and Head of Education –South Asia, Dr Monica Kennedy said that the campaign seeks to invite students to begin realising their potential through an Australian education.

“It encourages students to visit the Study Australia website, which now hosts a comprehensive course search tool, to explore their full range of study options,” Dr Kennedy said. The search tool includes more than 31,000 CRICOS-registered courses offered on campus in Australia, as well as wholly online programs and scholarship information (CRICOS is the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students).

More than 12,000 Study Australia transnational education programs have also been recently added to the course search tool, including options available at Australian branch campuses, partner provider campuses, offshore learning centres, and student hubs worldwide.

“The Study Australia website is a gateway for students to discover a course that’s right for them so they can then reach out directly to the course provider and enrol,” Dr Kennedy said. “It is a great starting point for students to explore the many quality options available, to start their Australian education closer to home right now, and plan for a transition to onshore studies.”

Given the COVID-19 regulations and the continuing restrictions on international student entry, this portal provides a viable touchpoint to international students for accessing reliable information as they begin to mull over a decision that can change their lives.
