Exporting university education
MetadataShow full item record
While full fee paying students are a boost to the local economy there are also long term trade and foreign policy benefits as we contribute to the education of the leaders of tomorrow. The State Government regards the export of education services as an important activity with significant social, education and economic benefits to the State. Educational advantages accrue not only for overseas students who come here but for the local students who study with them. Particularly in the research and post graduate areas there is sharing of expertise and perspective, and joint growth in adding to the global body of knowledge.
