Education Boom

On this episode we look at the growing sector of education and how two-way student mobility fosters Australia-China engagement. I was recently in Beijing and met with outgoing Minister Counsellor for Education and Research Katherine Vickers. 

In our chat we discuss why Chinese students see Australia as a popular study destination and look at areas Australia could improve in the highly competitive industry of international education. We also look at the opportunities for Tafe institutions and Australians studying under the New Colombo Plan in China, how Chinese students appraise their time in Australia and whether recent challenges in the Australia-China relationship have an affect on student numbers.
