Education and Training Minister for Western Australia today launched StudyPerth’s 2019 International Student Ambassador Program.
This initiative is a long-term State Government strategy to attract more international students to Perth, which will help improve Western Australia’s economy, contribute to the community and create more jobs. The program intends to promote Perth as a first-choice study destination for International Students.
A group of 10 international students were today named as the program’s ambassadors at the Council of International Students Australia annual conference in Perth. Each will be tasked with helping the State Government and StudyPerth to position Perth as a first-choice study destination.
The ambassadors will also raise awareness about the social and economic benefits that international education brings to Western Australia. They will write blogs and social media posts; facilitate question and answer forums and attend social business events, where they will discuss the benefits of international education in Perth Australia.
The development of the International Student Ambassador Program is one of 16 initiatives in StudyPerth’s Action Plan, which outlines how international students can live, learn and launch their future selves in Perth’s environment.
