In the higher education systems of the world, Australia is a standout performer.

Last year, our universities educated more than 1.3 million students and produced more than 300,000
skilled graduates to meet the workforce needs of a rapidly changing economy.

International education – now worth a record $30.9 billion – is Australia’s third biggest export. Cru-
cially, it also builds invaluable diplomatic, economic, personal and cultural ties between Australia and
other nations.

Australia is also a powerhouse for research and innovation. Ground-breaking research in our univer-
sities plays a pivotal role in generating new jobs and new industries for our country as our economy

Universities are also opening their doors to industry partners, seeking opportunities to collaborate
and broaden the impact of their research to benefit Australia and the world.

Our annual ‘University Profiles’ publication showcases the breadth, depth and quality of Australia’s

It highlights their enormous contribution to almost every aspect of our economy and society.

It’s a reminder of the many ways in which our universities drive Australia’s economic growth, extend
the frontiers of human knowledge, make life-saving breakthroughs and help the nation to transition
in an era of digital disruption.

It’s a great success story. We encourage you to share it widely.
