Destination Australia

The first round of the Destination Australia Program is now open for applications from tertiary education providers.

The aim of the Destination Australia Program is to attract and support international and domestic students to study in regional Australia, to grow and develop regional Australian tertiary education providers and offer students a high quality learning experience.

  • enhance regional and remote Australian education institutions through promoting activities that contribute to growth and sustainability
  • offer students from Australia and overseas the opportunity to undertake high quality education, training and research in, and to experience regional and remote Australia and
  • ensure regions share in the benefits of our $35 billion international education sector.
