The PNG Education Mission is for Australian universities to visit Port Moresby to meet with private students, the corporate sector, and short-listed Australia Awards candidates. This year there is an option for universities to travel to Lae, a commercial hub and PNG’s second largest city.

An alumni function will also coincide with the PNG Education Mission in Port Moresby.

Australia is a significant market for overseas study for tertiary education. This demand is driven by our proximity to Australia, our shared history, and the quality of education services.

With an expanding middle-class PNG has an appetite for higher education in Australia. New projects in the infrastructure and resource sectors are demanding broader skills required by business to increase employee capabilities.

Education export earnings from PNG were $76 million, with an average investment of $79,167 per student. See MIP Orbis for further details.
