Abstract

Extract: South Australian educational institutions, educators and researchers have a long history of engagement with the Asia Pacific region. More recently however this engagement has been transformed and accelerated through the growth of International education. International education has been one of the fastest growing sectors of South Australian (and Australian) economy. Between 2001 and 2006 Census, employment in education in South Australia grew 15%, over double the rate for the economy as a whole. At the Australian level, this contribution has been recognised in studies by Access Economics commissioned by the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET). These studies examined the economic benefits of international education as an export industry and the flow-on impacts from international student expenditure as well as their vising friends and relatives. They concluded that the 28,000 international students who studied in South Australia in 2008 and their visiting friends and relatives, supported an estimated 6,800 jobs and generated a total value-add of $680 million.
