A delegation from a number of top Australian universities was in Samoa this week. They were here for the first Australia Future Unlimited Education Roadshow held at Taumeasina Island Resort.
The delegation was made up of representatives from Australian National University, Central Queensland University, Victoria University, Deakin University, Griffith College, University of Tasmania, The University of Sydney, University of South Australia and the Australian Institute of Business and Technology.
The Roadshow commenced with open sessions for College students.
There were also one-on-one sessions with post-graduate and mature students where Samoans interested in pursuing further studies in Australia were given the opportunity to speak to each of the university representatives individually.
The representatives also met with members of private sector organisations in a session that was jointly organised by the Australian High Commission and the Samoa Chamber of Commerce.
This was an opportunity to link the universities with the private sector to discuss any opportunities for members to study in Australia.
Following this, they met with Post School Education and Training (P.S.E.T.) providers during a session that was organised by the Samoa Qualifications Authority to discuss opportunities for collaboration and engagement between the providers and tertiary institutions in Australia.
