Western Australia is promoted to international students through a programme funded by the government.

According to a press statement from the office of the Minister for International Education and Training, Hon. David Templeman, the government of Western Australia (WA) is funding a new programme to aid in promoting the state to international students as a “preferred study destination.”

The “International Education Familiarisation Program” is a new initiative that is expected to cost $1 million overall, according to a press release from the Ministry on December 7. Educational institutions in Western Australia are eligible to apply for up to $50,000 in grant funding for each familiarization programme.

The promotion of Western Australia as a study destination and the experiences the state has to offer to those students will be supported financially by foreign education providers,

In order to entice more foreign students to choose Western Australia as their study destination, Education Minister David Templeman invited international education providers in WA to apply for funds as part of the new initiative unveiled today.

It’s critical that we do more to raise awareness of the benefits Western Australia can offer to international students, according to Templeman. “Temporary student visa arrivals have significantly improved in recent months, but with countries all over the world competing for the same pool of students, it’s important we do more,” he said.

He added that the programme will be a chance to demonstrate why Western Australia is the ideal place for international students to reside and further their education.

The Education Trade Familiarizations and the Collaborative Familiarization Fund are the two forms of familiarisation that the programme will sponsor. Under the initiative, international stakeholders will be able to travel to Western Australia to encourage foreign students to study there and spread the word about the benefits that studying abroad has to offer through networking, training sessions, site visits, and travel adventures.

The McGowan Government’s initiatives on foreign education total $41.2 million, of which $1 million is designated for the International Education Familiarization programme.

The government will also give StudyPerth projects $423,000, according to the press release, so that the foreign education sector may access a variety of activities to build their familiarisation programmes.

Through the first semester of 2023, StudyPerth will continue to welcome international students at Perth Airport thanks to funding provided by the government. Government funding for this purpose totals $195,000 in total.

Applications for the Collaborative Familiarizations Fund must be submitted by February 28, 2023, however if there is no more money available, the grant application period may end earlier.
