  • As you are all aware, Australia is a major global player in international education, with more than one million alumni world-wide, and arguably, has become a world leader in many aspects including a student-centred approach, marketing, offshore provision of courses, pathways to university and regulation.  Over 25 years of in42984ternational education, the enduring partnership between education providers and government bodies at the national, state and local levels has also contributed to ensure that the efforts of providers are maximised and that the benefits of international education have not just been economic but have far reaching impact educationally, socially and culturally to domestic and international students, education institutions, business and community, in Australia and abroad. High level leadership, coordination and support by government to the sector has provided a platform on which education providers can leverage opportunities through a range of activities such as research collaboration, marketing and promotion, and student support services and I would like to focus on this partnership, specifically at state government level, and how through the innovation of both government policy makers and education institutions, Australia, in the face of frequent challenges, has reaped the rewards of international education.
  • Since the University of Queensland is located in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, I am going to focus on the collaborative partnership that has endured in Queensland since the development by the Queensland Government of the Smart State Strategy in 1998 and their establishment of the dedicated international education unit – Queensland Education and Training International or QETI as it is know by in 2000.Prior to the formal development of the strategies, the Queensland Government had been supporting collaborative international education activities offshore and in 1997 the inaugural Queensland International Education Roadshow travelled to Japan which at that time was one of Queensland’s largest source countries for international students and in many ways lead the push by State Governments to support the promotion of Australian education and training globally. To give you an idea of the importance of international education to Queensland today - 103,182 international students (Nov 2010)Queensland’s 2nd largest services export industryIn 2009/10, over $2.9 billion contribution to the Queensland economy.  Employs, directly and indirectly, more than 17,000 Queenslanders. 
  • Before I talk about the specific education and training export strategy, it is important that you understand the overarching Smart State Strategy which articulates the Queensland Government's vision to create a State where knowledge, creativity and innovation drive economic growth so that all Queenslanders can enjoy the benefits of a prosperous economy and an enviable quality of life.  It is about increasing collaborations between Queensland's researchers and industries and investing in people, ideas, and partnerships to make smart businesses bigger and big businesses smarter. The Smart State is also about ensuring future generations of Queenslanders can enjoy the lifestyle and environment we have now.  Since 1998, the Queensland Government has invested over $3.6 billion in science, research and innovation to drive a dynamic and diverse economy through stages one and two of the Smart State Strategy. Over the past 10 years, the Government has invested strongly in education and training reforms and research and development (R&D) infrastructure, and has broadened the State's industry base. Queensland is now Australia's strongest state economy and is well positioned to compete on the global stage.  Since 1998 – $3.6 billion investment in R&D has resulted in 36 new research institutes and more than 230 research scholarships and fellowships. Queensland's knowledge-intensive exports grew by 105.5 per cent between 1999-2000 and 2006-07. Business expenditure on R&D grew by 162 per cent between 1997-98 and 2005-06. The Qld Government is now focused on securing Queensland's future by investing in people, ideas and partnerships to drive creativity and innovation. $120 million is being invested including $23.3 million to attract and retain some of the brightest minds in science and industry to solve the challenges of the future, and $25 million to attract leading clinical researchers to improve Queensland's health services through research. A $60 million Innovation Projects Fund is also being established to support collaborations between researchers and industry- research partnerships to address some of the biggest challenges facing Queensland in the future, such as climate change, population growth, sustainable development, health and wellbeing. UQ has benefitted from the Smart State Strategy through government funded infrastructure developments including but not limited to –Institute for Molecular Science (IMB)Australian Institute for Bioengineering and NanotechnologySustainable Minerals InstituteQueensland Brain InstituteUQ Centre for Clinical ResearchPharmacy Australia Centre of ExcellenceQueensland Nuclear Magnetic Resonance NetworkUQ's Diamantina Institute for CancerAs well as Smart State fellowships and scholarships for UQ researchers and students. All three holders of Smart State Premier's Fellowships (the top Queensland Government prize for research) are UQ staff.
  • The Queensland Government commissioned PriceWatehouseCoopersto evaluate and make recommendations on how Queensland could improve its performance in the area of education and training export. The Queensland Education and Export Strategy was developed and in 2000 Queensland Education and Training International ( QETI) was established with the aim of doubling the exports of Queensland education and training services in 5 years. After a review in 2005/2006 the government provided a further 5 years funding to 2010. A second review is now underway and due to regulatory changes such as the abolition of Qld Government sponsored boards, the Board has been replaced with an interim committee and the working parties dissolved until March 2011 when the review findings will be presented to Government. Aimsbuild a whole-of-industry and whole-of-government approachposition Queensland as a preferred provider in selected international and niche marketsintroduce strategies to ensure high quality of education and training, academic support and pastoral careminimise structural, regulatory and infrastructure barriers to growthObjectivesdouble export earnings of the Queensland education and training industry from $500 million to $1 billion in 5 years – accomplished by the end of 2006work with and provide leadership to existing line agenciesco-ordination and consensus to ensure success and maximum impactVisionDevelopment of the international education and training export industry will directly contribute to the long-term economic growth of Queensland’s economy. It will support and extend the principles of the Smart State by funding and intellectually fuelling the development of a knowledge economy that is competitive globally.
  • On establishment in 2001, the unique unit which was positioned centrally in the Department of Premier and Cabinet has five strategic objectives:Mobilising the Will – unifying all sectors of the education and training industry, including both private and public sectors of  universities, schools, English colleges and training institutions, into a whole-of-industry approach; Industry development, market intelligence, competitor intelligence, export facilitation, industry partnershipCreating the Image – of Queensland as a quality provider of education and training services, and the provider of first choice;Study Qld branding, promotional materials, website, special visitor program, public relationsCapturing the Markets – through a strategic approach of innovative market entry and development activities and programs;Products, priority markets, agent supportRemoving the Barriers – which currently inhibit growth such as visa restrictions, transportation links, recognition of qualifications etc; andRegulatory, industry structure, student support services, infrastructureInvesting in the Future – in areas of new product development, infrastructure requirements, up-skilling of providers and cultural changes over time.student services, quality assurance, pathways programs, community, alumni, funding issues Key to the operation of QETI is the coordination of 4 strategic working parties focused on schools, ELICOS, VET and higher education as well as an over arching board/committee that is chaired by a former State Minister of Education and Training. Membership of these working parties includes representatives from both government and non government providers of education and training. All Working Parties report the views of industry to the QETI Board which would then feed this up through Government to the Premier.UQ has been represented both on the Board at the DVC International level and on the higher education and ELICOS working parties since the inception of QETI and has benefitted from the increased networking and collaborative activities.
  • The 1st strategic objective – mobilising the well – was key to bringing the education sector together across the state to collaborate towards the growth of international education in the state. In addition to the sectoral working groups that report to the Board and then through the Board to Government regional education networks and clusters feed into these working groups and the Board. Queensland unlike other states such as Victoria and NSW does not have all of its education providers concentrated in the state capital but quality education providers are spread throughout the state from Brisbane and Gold Coast in the South East Corner to Cairns in far north Queensland. Brisbane and the Gold Coast have the major share of university campuses. University of Queensland, QUT, GU and ACU in Brisbane and GU and Bond University on the Gold Coast.Other major cities with key education institutions including Toowoomba – USQ and leading private schoolsSunshine Coast – USCRockhampton – CQU ( also has campuses in other cities in Qld and in other states of Australia)Townsville – JCUas well as Hervey Bay and Mackay mainly in the school sectorAs there is diversity of climate, location, lifestyle and education provider in each of these cities many of them have established their own regional education cluster to support the development of the sector, including promotional activities and student support services, which have also been linked into the overarching strategies that QETI implemented at the state level. Funding from local and regional councils as well as the education providers has been used to foster and coordinate international education in these cities and regions.
  • The 2nd and 3rd strategic objectives – Creating the Image and Capturing the Markets – were also a key focus of QETI in the initial 5 year period as they created the promotional tools and researched international markets to assist Queensland education providers market successfully in the key international markets that offered the best opportunities for student recruitment activities.Currently QETI continues to – profile Qld as a study destination to international students through its Study Qld brand including a website, multilingual brochures, promotional materials and strategic advertising campaigns deliver market intelligences and professional development seminars to share the latest market research and best practice work closely with Trade Queensland’s international network (Asia, Middle East, Europe and the Americas) to provide practical assistance in market for Queensland education and training providers and institutionslead overseas delegations to establish government to government relations and agreements, with a focus on emerging markets . For 2011 Russia, Eastern Europe and Africa featureProvides an e-newsletter and online portal for industry to access the latest news, research and statisticsAssist and encourage the establishment and ongoing work of the regional clusters to promote international educationCoordinates a Qld student experience reference group to progress international student welfare issuesDetails for 2009/10 QETI (6 months - July to December 2010)More than 18 market intelligence seminars/ workshops/ and video conferences/professional development Scholarships Hosted 9 inbound delegations from 5 COUNTRIES, involving meetings with approximately 65 Queensland industry stakeholdersCoordinated 11 regional engagement meetings across Qld for the Higher Education, VET, Schools and ELICOS sectorsCoordinated the Queensland Cup speaking competition in Shanghai at the World ExpoHosted 4 market intelligence seminars as part of Queensland Export Week
  • Just as an example, for the University of Queensland, there has been increased recognition by the government at the Annual QETI International Awards for of a number of faculties and programs at the University since the awards were instigated in 2005. These awards recognise not only the expertise of the university’s faculties and programs but also our expertise in research collaboration, student support services and the individual strengths of our students and staff which provides more evidence for state government representatives working internationally when promoting the university’s capabilities.Other past awards include – Best Practice in International Collaboration 2009 - Higher EducationManali Medical Aid Project, School of Medicine, The University of Queensland Best Practice in International Collaboration 2009 - English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students Institute of Continuing & TESOL Education, The University of QueenslandOutstanding Pathway Program 2009International Education Services Internationalisation 2007Highly Commended: Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, The University of Queensland, The Rotary Centre for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution International Support Services and Pastoral Care 2007Highly Commended: Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, The University of Queensland, Program Khusus – The University of Queensland/University of Indonesia Linked Program in Psychology Partnerships for Positive Outcomes 2007Winner: International Education Services, Professional International Education Resources (PIER)
  • The 4th and 5th Strategic Objectives of the Qld Education and Training Export Strategy – Removing the Barriers and Investing in the Future – were to ensure the sustainability of international education in Queensland. From the establishment of QETI in 2000, there has been an equitable focus on international marketing and promotion activities as well as ensuring the soft and hard education and life infrastructure was in place to support international students.An increased focus by government from all levels – national, state and local – on international student welfare issues has continued so that pre arrival, during their studies in Australia and post graduation the unique needs of international students are being better met. Student Experience Reference Groups have been established with the support of QETI and Study Brisbane and activities such as airport welcome information booths, student ambassadors, social inclusion and resident awareness programs have been established. City Councils are taking into consideration the accommodation and transportation needs of international students in city planning and Queensland Police have also been brought in as partners as well.City wide International Student Welcome Days have become an annual event and as you all would be aware, the floods that we had in Queensland in January affected may of our institutions including UQ, so the State Government and Local Government have used a number of channels, traditional media releases as well as youtube, social networking sites etc, to get the messages out about Qld still being ready to welcome internationals students in 2011.A few shots of the remarkable clean up efforts at UQ to ensure that the university would be open for business at the start of 1st Semester 2011.
  • Smart State Strategies – Not just funding but the University will have a continuing role in building Queensland's international reputation as a place that values and encourages discovery, particularly in fields that may improve human and environmental health and wellbeing.Ability to network at high level through participation in activities lead by the Premier, Education and Trade Ministers both in Australia and offshore leading to development of valuable contacts, networks and opportunities. University competitors also become collaborators as they work together and participate in shared workshops, activities and promotional events.Participation in activities under the Study Queensland banner provide a cohesive and supportive environment in which to profile and brand the international education sector in Queensland with the University benefitting from the flow on effect of international students studying with ELICOS, School and vocational education and training providers.

  • Future Challenges for university engagement with government include;Financial implications after the GFC and particularly for Queensland the cost of recovery after the recent state wide floods and Cyclone Yasi in North QueenslandIndustry maturation – changing requirements of universities in their global engagement. The focus on student recruitment has evolved to focusing on sustainable 2 way engagement with partners - university, corporate and government – including student mobility, capacity building, academic and research collaboration and are government agencies equipped with adequate resources to support these endeavoursIncreased competition from other states, regional and local governments across the globe who see a role for themselves in marketing and promoting their education providers onshore and offshore
