[WEBCAST] Looking Ahead | International EducationVIEW EVENT DETAILS
What is the future of Australia’s International Education sector and to what extent will the rules of engagement shift in the wake of COVID-19?
The novel coronavirus crisis has seen a dramatic halt to one of Australia’s biggest exports: International Education. The start of the 2020 academic year saw Australia-wide university shut-downs, government-imposed lockdowns, and many international students stranded, unable to return home yet unable to participate in Australian everyday life. With international travel restrictions in place for the foreseeable future, Australian institutions are now in uncharted territory. As delivery models shift online, can international student recruitment prove the same adaptability?
Asia Society Australia warmly invites you to join CEO of International Education Association of Australia (IEAA) and Looking Ahead contributor, Phil Honeywood, in-conversation with Pro Vice Chancellor (International) of Macquarie University, Nicole Brigg, and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (External Engagement) of the University of Queensland, Rongyu Li, for a public webcast assessing the short- and long-term human and economic effects of this pandemic on the International Education sector and their potential impact on international relations and cultural diplomacy worldwide.
Date: Thursday 11 June 2020
Time: 3- 3:45 p.m.
Please note this event will run as a webcast only and is open to the public. Registration is essential. For any enquiries, please contact email@example.com.
About our Speakers
Our Looking Ahead series sets out a sequence of analytical papers examining how the key sectors of Australia-Asia economic connectivity and cross-cutting policy issues are likely to change as a result of the pandemic, and how Australian leaders should prepare for these changes. The papers are solutions-oriented, presenting possible scenarios and policy responses that governments and organisations may pursue. To complement the series, Asia Society will be holding live, and public events to amplify these discussions.
Asia Society Australia acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government
