——-

Free of charge, Wise Words Media’s International Student Education video content series is an online tool and resource for international education recruitment agents based outside Australia. It offers valuable visual evidence addressing issues about lifestyle and safety for international students in Melbourne.

The impact of international education on the Australian economy increased by 22% in 2017, reaching $32.3 billion dollars.

[3]

Consistently rated the worlds most liveable city year-on-year, how can Melbourne stay alive and relevant as a brand and destination of choice for international student’s and their fee-paying parents?

COVID-19 will dictate marketing and recruitment of international students in Australia for some time to come. 

Australia’s international tertiary education sector is Australia’s 3rd largest export earner.

[4]

Australia’s international borders are still closed to international students. [5]

Australia’s international tertiary education sector and its decimated workforce faces huge challenges during 2021 as it deals with the current CoVid-driven environment. [6]

Keeping current students since March, 2020 while attracting new enrolments is an exceptional challenge for the sector suffering from a huge reduction in fees income.

In April 2020, RMIT and La Trobe University ‘in a sign of the mounting financial pressure on Australia’s universities..moved to let go of hundreds of casual staff”. [6a]

Australian univerisities have to find a way to maintain their sales funnels. Just as urgently, they must keep international student recruitment pipeline’s open via long-established relationships with international student education recruitment agents based outside Australia.

Wise Words Media’s International Student Education video content series offers valuable, real-life visual evidence that addresses concerns about safety and health in Melbourne for international students.

Australia is the safest and most welcoming country for international students

[7]

International students will return – many to Melbourne saying, “My future and my life are there”. [8]

Although Australia’s borders have been closed for some time, international flights into Melbourne will resume on 8 April 2021.

Students have reportedly been transferring their enrolment to study in CoVid-ridden countries such as UK and North America. [9] Yet CoVid restrictions and sudden lockdowns in these countries may drive students into the very environment they are trying to avoid – online delivery of courses for unknown and extended periods.

However while these countries in the short term may have greater attraction, parents and students need to consider and compare the stricter CoVid-driven lockdown conditions of each country with the lifestyle Australia now enjoy’s under current Co-Vid conditions. Crowds now flock to entertainment venues.

Witness the return of crowds last week to Australian Rules Football in Melbourne, as captured by this walking life’.

[10]

Previewed as a teaser trailer by this walking life’, live theatre has also returned. Returning to the stage and exclusive to Melbourne is the massive global smash-hit ‘Harry Potter and the #CursedChild’ [10a]

For 27 consecutive days, Melbourne (and the entire state of Victoria) has recorded no new coronavirus cases. The state government is now preparing to welcome international flights and resume hotel quarantine within a fortnight. [11]

Of 65,000 international students surveyed in 2016, 93% listed safety as a key reason for studying in Australia – making it the “safest and most welcoming country for international students”.

[12]

Melbourne has also overhauled it’s state-wide hotel quarantine program. These were halted in mid-February 2021 amid fears a hotel quarantine outbreak had released a mutant COVID-19 strain into the community. [13]

In a global CoVid-driven environment, it’s understandably natural that the parents who pay for and send their children to Australia for tertiary and secondary education make decisions based on genuine concerns about safety and health.

However, their decisions will be driven by the quality of the education and perhaps less so about how Australia has managed it’s health response to CoVid-19. [14], [15]

For parents, safety of international students in Australia is always a key consideration. Not surprisingly, this topic is always a primary plank of marketing and recruitment issues every university addresses in their available services for international students. 

A final word on health is from Melbourne’s Chief Health Officer, Mr Brett Sutton: 

Melbourne eliminates COVID – 28 straight days of no new local cases.

[16]

As of Friday 26 March 2021, Melbourne recorded 28 days without a single local case of coronavirus – reaching what is described as effective elimination of the virus.

Another good reason for choosing to study in Australia.
