The “STUDY IN AUSTRALIA 2009 – Explore Australia. Discover Yourself” education fair, is targeted at students and their families who are weighing up the important choice of ongoing education. The Australian Government takes a strong interest in maintaining the quality of education for Australians and international students alike. With its very sophisticated education and training system, students are not only exposed to world-class courses of study but also specialist support services. That is why more and more students from all over the world come to Australia to participate in its world-class higher education, progressive vocational education and training (VET), excellent schools and international English courses.

This year’s event is the biggest yet, with 36 leading Australian education institutions from ALL states in Australia participating in the ‘Study in Australia’ education fair on 24 and 25 October 2009 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. More than 60 representatives from Australian colleges and universities will be on-hand to provide course and career advice for students and their families.

This year we will see an increased focus on Vocational & Education Training (VET) as another pathway to gain education qualifications recognised by Australian government and employers. The National Quality Training Framework ensures Australia’s national VET system provides high quality, industry relevant training and qualification recognition. There will be four (4) of these institutions participating in our special 2-hour VET seminar to talk about workplace training in various disciplines. This will be held at 3.30pm on Saturday, 24th October in the exhibition hall itself.

Other scheduled seminars by Australian education institutions include talks on reasons to study in Australia, new directions of education and industrial expectations. There are also seminars on student visas for Malaysian and other foreign students. Like the education fair itself, admission to all seminars is FREE.

think Immersion Education as it relates to Hospitality…

What does it mean… “in traditional educational instituitons that do not apply the immersion methodology, it is just learning theories in classes and that is it. however in the application of this methodology, the classroom is expanded in the sense that it “throws” the students directly into the industry itself whereby they apply the knowledge that they learn to polish up their skills. in other words it is the application of theories in the practical world as hospitality is not a “book” industry it is a “practical” industry. beyond books it is also the exposure to the environment as well as it is vital that the environment reflects what the students are learning. imagine students learning medicine who do all thier learning in a classroom but when they go into an operating theatre, they are unable to apply the knowledge they have learned .. same concept. i hope this answers your query in the immersion methodology.”

Excerpts from Julia Gillard’s Deputy Prime Minister of Australia and deputy leader of the federal Australian Labor Party (ALP) Speech Address to the DEEWR International Education Roundtable
16 MARCH 2009March 16 2009

Less than three weeks ago, I released new figures which showed that international student enrolments in Australia had increased by just under 21 per cent in 2008, reaching more than 543,000.

At the time I noted that education institutions were reporting continuing strong interest from international students wishing to study in Australia—despite the current global economic downturn.

It’s important to remember that historically we’ve seen international demand for Australian education continue, even during economic slumps.

And on the higher education front, I’ve made it clear the Government is committed to providing more opportunities for students, ensuring academic freedom and autonomy, and encouraging and supporting research—and particularly through international partnerships.
From early childhood, school, vocational education and training, right through to the university sector, this Government is committed to delivering an Education Revolution.
Rest assured, we know how valuable and important the international education industry is to Australia, to other economies and societies, and of course to individual students themselves.
This industry supports an estimated 80 000 Australian jobs.

Having international students on campuses here in Australia—studying alongside local students—creates a better, fairer and more tolerant society, and ensures a wider diversity of programs for both Australian and international students alike.
International education also creates and encourages the knowledge and skills which are crucial to tackling some of the serious global challenges we all face, like climate change, water resource management, food security, global poverty, and international political and social unrest..
Quite simply, the international education industry has tremendous capacity to continue to contribute to both our national and international goals, and this is particularly true in these troubled financial times.

You will all know I’m sure that ‘Live, Learn and Grow’ is the tagline for Australia’s international education brand, Study in Australia. Central to this brand identity is the high quality learning and lifestyle opportunities offered by Australian education.

Above all, I want Australia to be seen by international students as a welcoming place to study for a globally recognised education qualification.
