International education delegates visit Bond University

Education sector delegates from across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America visited Bond University on the Gold Coast this week, as part of a familiarisation tour of Queensland universities and VET providers, organised by Trade & Investment Queensland.

International education is already worth $2.4 billion to Queensland's economy, making it the state's second largest service export, and is set for substantial growth, with numerous emerging prospects for expansion identified by Trade & Investment Queensland.

Almost 100,000 international student enrolled in Queensland institutions in 2014 alone.

In total, 16 representatives were involved in the familiarisation tour at Bond University, with the delegates also visiting institutes in Cairns, Rockhampton, Toowoomba, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane as part of their seven-day visit.

Bond University Director of International, John McPartland, said the opportunity to showcase Bond University to such high profile delegates from across the world was a major coup.

"Education is a major driver of the Gold Coast economy and will continue to be an expanding industry for the city into the future," he said.

"To have these delegates visit Bond University and experience first hand the quality of the campus and the teaching - along with the fantastic Gold Coast location - is invaluable."
