Growth and opportunity in Australian international education
Widening the traditional lens
Deloitte Access Economics, in partnership with EduWorld, looks at the scale and scope of the international education opportunity available to Australia over the next decade.
International education is Australia’s largest service export and the nation’s fourth largest export overall – after iron ore, coal and natural gas. Looking ahead, international education is expected to be among the major beneficiaries of the unprecedented economic transformation the global economy is currently undergoing.
At the same time, technology is changing the way education is purchased, experienced and consumed, and is extending international education markets beyond their established geographic and service boundaries. These supply-side shifts are potentially just as seismic as the changes in demand.
The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) engaged Deloitte Access Economics, in partnership with EduWorld, to develop an independent and evidence-informed research report that assesses the scale and scope of the international education opportunity available to Australia over the next decade.
