Australia's Education Strategy for India


The Australian Government has released its Education Strategy for India to guide and strengthen the bilateral education partnership. 

A Partnership for the Future – Australia’s Education Strategy for India was announced at the Australia India Education and Skills Council meeting in Gandhinagar. The meeting was co-chaired by the Hon Dharmendra Pradhan, Indian Minister of Education and Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, along with the Hon Jason Clare, Australian Minister for Education, and the Hon Brendan O’Connor, Australian Minister for Skills and Training.

The strategy sets out a range of different steps Australia will take to deepen its relationship with India, including through closer research partnerships in areas of shared benefit.

The ministers also welcomed the imminent opening of University of Wollongong and Deakin University campuses on Indian soil.  They also welcomed news of four new partnerships between Australian and Indian universities, as well as six Australian Innovation Research Universities signalling their intent to collectively establish a consortium campus in India.

The AIESC, formerly the Australian India Education Council (AIEC), is a bi-national body established in 2011 to guide the strategic direction of the education, training and research partnerships between the two countries.
