What people say about AIEC


"[My favourite conference is] without a doubt the Australian International Education Conference. Australia approaches international education in a very different way from any other country; it's business but not at the cost of academic value. As a journalist it's great for stories because they really use the event as a platform to announce government policy, candidly voice concerns from across the sectors and the Aussies, at every level in an organisation, are well informed about what's going on. It helps that AIEC is always held in October when London is turning cold and Australia is coming into summer."

Sara Custer, The PIE News – Delegate at AIEC 2014


“I got so many new ideas regarding how we work and what we can do better or differently in the sector and in my own institution.”

Saskia Loer Hansen, RMIT – Delegate at AIEC 2014

“The keynote speakers were outstanding – a perfect mix of valuable knowledge, inspiration and innovation.”
