Funding boost to attract international students to WA

Our clients in the education sector will be pleased to hear the State Government recently announce its plans to provide additional funding to attract international students to Western Australia.

The McGowan Government will invest an extra $4.5 million as part of an International Education Action Plan to encourage students from all around the world to make Perth their number one study destination.  

The Action Plan hopes to bring international student enrolments to an estimated 88,000 by 2022, significantly increasing jobs and income for the international education sector in WA.
