There are 11,551 enrollments that, as of April 2022, have been registered for Colombian students in Australia. It is expected that with the signing of the ‘Memorandum of Understanding between Australia and Colombia’ on educational cooperation, educational exchange strategies will continue to be strengthened.
The Australian Embassy in Colombia celebrated the report that shows Colombia as the Latin American country with the most students in the country of Oceania.
“It is an ideal opportunity for our countries to extend collaboration through technical cooperation, and also to exchange good practices on issues such as academic diversity and employability, highlighting the quality of our institutions, the student experience and the visionary approach of the Australian education system,” said Erika Thompson, Australian Ambassador.
The Australian higher education system has become one of the most forward-thinking in growing and changing workforces, providing those who train there with credentials on their new skills.
The Australian government has committed to allocating A$32.5 million to improve education for foreigners and nationals, which shows a promising outlook in this regard.
“The most important aspect of the collaboration and exchanges between Australia and Colombia is not what we are doing now, but what these links will do for our countries in the future. Education and training with a practical approach consists of adequately preparing our students so that they can contribute positively to the development of our countries,” the ambassador added.
Everything seems to indicate that the quality of life and the guarantees offered by the Australian government are in the first line of the aspects that draw the attention of Latin Americans to go there.
The University of Melbourne, the Australian National University, the University of Queensland, Monash University and the University of Sydney are among the top 100 universities in the world, according to the “Times Higher Education World University Ranking 2022”.
