Australia Global Alumni
Australia is one of the most popular destinations for international students seeking a world-class education experience.
More than 2.5 million international students have studied in Australia in the last 50 years. More than 80,000 alumni received Australian Government Scholarships and Fellowships from the Colombo Plan in the 1950s through to the Australia Awards and the New Colombo Plan today.
With private students as well as those who have studied through the Australia Awards and the New Colombo Plan programs, Australia has alumni from every corner of the globe.
The Government has developed a new Australia Global Alumni Engagement Strategy which will reach out to the Global Alumni Community, inviting alumni to connect and engage with Australia and the region. The Australia Global Alumni website will play a central role now the strategy is active.
- What is the Australia Global Alumni Website?
The Australia Global Alumni website is a virtual global network that has been created to connect, build and invigorate the international community of scholars who have studied in Australia and Australians who have studied overseas.
This website and social media platform will support alumni to continue building on educational and cultural experiences. It will provide the opportunity to participate in ongoing personal and professional development and network with other alumni.
The Australia Global Alumni website includes content of general interest to alumni such as news articles, public events and alumni stories. These could come from the Australian Government, academic institutions, industry experts, businesses or alumni themselves.
