Study Australia Industry Experience Projects (SAIEP) is a new program designed to identify opportunities for international students currently studying with Australian education providers onshore or offshore, and gain industry experience in or outside of Australia. The program will promote the employability of graduates from Australia’s education programs and will provide vital industry work experience opportunities to students.
SAIEP will provide participants with an authentic employment experience and facilitate integration with domestic student peers through collaborative project delivery, during their Australian studies. The pilot will focus on Indian students currently studying offshore online, to improve their learning experience, employability skills and employment outcomes.
The program will also enable Austrade to promote Australia’s employability programs and opportunities to prospective students, agents, sponsors and influencers. It will be delivered jointly by India Digital Education Hub and the International Education CoE, in partnership with Practera.
