Study Australia website generating leads

22 Jun 2021

Austrade is committed to the continuous improvement of digital services for the education sector and our stakeholders globally, including via the Study Australia website.

Since its inception less than 12 months ago, the Study Australia Course Search tool has attracted over 100,000 course detail searches by prospective students. As a result of these searches, the website has facilitated over 37,600 click-throughs to provider websites to date, resulting in over 20,000 enquiry emails being sent directly to education providers at no cost to the institution.

The Course Search function was first introduced on the site through a technology services agreement with IDP Connect, in order to allow prospective students to access information on the full range of onshore study options available. In late 2020, Austrade added scholarship information and wholly online courses to the Course Search tool. Then, this month, 12,000 new transnational (TNE) course options were added.

This new TNE course listing offers prospective offshore students unable to travel to Australia currently the opportunity to begin their Australian education experience right now, closer to home. The new courses listed include programs offered at Australian provider branch campuses, partner provider campuses, online learning centres and student hubs around the world.

If you have any questions about the tool or your provider’s course listing, please contact studyaustralia@austrade.gov.au. We are also keen to hear about your experience in receiving student leads and to learn how we might continue to improve the Course Search tool — let us know!
