National strategy for international education: where to from here? (1168)

Australia’s international education sector has put a great deal of time and effort into discussions, submissions and attending roundtables in the hope of finalising a whole-of-government strategy that will take us forward. After all these efforts, we appear to have an agreed vision as well as several key priority issues that the sector wants government to move on quickly. The challenge will now be to ensure that appropriate resources are allocated to the key tasks, that public servants get on with the job of implementing agreed recommendations and that the wider community better understands how important international education is to our nation’s future. Three members of the Ministerial Coordinating Council for International Education will share their perspectives on what might actually be achievable from the strategy in the short and medium terms.
