In the age of fake news and populism, this year’s IEAA Research Summit will separate fact from furphy to focus on ‘evidence for action’ in international education.

IEAA will launch a new, IEAA-commissioned study that mines big data on census and migration to examine the impact of post-study work rights on international students, employers and the wider economy. The evidence from this study will serve as a primer for discussion on the roles and responsibilities for graduate employability. Does it sit with individuals, institutions, government or community? What role does each group play in supporting the long-term sustainability of the sector?

We will also cast our gaze to 2030 to consider what we need to know now to prepare ourselves for education internationalisation in 10 years’ time. Where do we need to go? And what evidence do we need to support policy-making in the future?

IEAA’s Research Summit (previously Roundtable) has been held in conjunction with AIEC since 2009. As a model for using research to inform policy and practice, it has established itself as a must attend event for researchers and practitioners alike.

Key themes

  • International graduates and their early work experiences in Australia
  • New research and implications for policy and practice
  • What will education internationalisation look like in 2030?


IEAA’s Research Summit caters to the interests and needs of established and emerging researchers across a wide range of disciplines. It will also appeal to senior education sector practitioners and research users, government policy makers as well as research funding and commissioning agencies.
