Making a Difference: Australian International Education
Twenty-five years ago the Australian Government responded to the demand for more places for overseas students by allowing institutions to charge full fees, and a revolution in international education followed. Today it is an industry ranked third in national export earnings, with more than 2.5 million alumni world-wide bringing diplomatic, economic and social benefits, and with an international reputation for innovation, entrepreneurship and professionalism.
Making a Difference details the global context, history, development and outcomes of international education in Australia. The contributors, who include the late Tony Adams, Christine Bundesen, Mike Gallagher, Fazal Rizvi, John C Wood and Chris Ziguras, discuss the benefits of international education, the role of government and of private enterprise, innovative approaches to marketing and to student support, offshore teaching, the evolving regulatory environment and future prospects. The text is interwoven with student perspectives and market country profiles.
