Now in its sixth year, Australian Vocational & Higher Education Exhibition 2010 continues to raise the profile of Australian universities, vocational institutes and colleges to Vietnamese students and their families. This year, more than sixty Australian universities, vocational institutes and colleges will travel to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to participate in the Australian exhibition in Vietnam.

Organized by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), the exhibition continues to grow every year providing students and their families with access to a growing range of Australian education programs, curriculum and education pathways, as well as practical information about the benefits of living and studying in Australia.

In addition to meeting with representatives from the participating institutions, the exhibition’s seminar program will provide visitors with information about the six steps to study in Australia presented by Austrade, visa requirements from the Australian Government presented by DIAC, an overview of Australia’s education system, the student experience and benefits of studying vocational education and profiles of specific fields of study and study destinations.

Australia’s Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner to Vietnam, Mr Tony Burchill, highlighted the importance of the exhibition in promoting Australian education to Vietnam. “Australia continues to be an attractive destination for Vietnamese students who value high quality education services. With 24,063 students enrolled to study in Australia by September 2010 (representing 12.7% growth over the same period last year), Vietnam ranks fourth as a source country for international students coming to Australia after China, India, Korea”, he said.

“By providing students and their families with first-hand information about Australian institutions, their courses, studying and living environments, the exhibition helps parents in making what is a critical decision in their child’s education future”, Mr Burchill said.

“Australia is internationally regarded for its high quality, affordable education and its supportive study and living environment”.
