Event overview

Australia’s education sector was the nation’s fourth largest export in 2019 and has been a key contributor to the national economy.
The dramatic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nation’s higher education sector has accelerated new thinking and innovation. This sector is transforming the way it operates and delivers education.
The reality facing the sector is challenging. Australian universities are experiencing funding shortfalls, significant revenue loss from the decline in international enrolments, and are seeking new ways to remain financially sustainable.
