A message from the QLD Government

Message from the Minister

As the member for Cairns, I am acutely aware of the important role Study Cairns plays in our community, and I am proud to continue my support of their efforts in enhancing the student experience across far north Queensland.

Cairns is one of Queensland’s most vibrant study destinations, located where two World Heritage natural wonders meet, the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. The region offers students endless opportunities to discover and learn in one of our favourite places. With two world-class universities and a range of Schools, Vocational Education and Training, and English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students providers, Cairns provides international students with a high-quality education experience in one of the most beautiful locations in the world.

 Through the Study Queensland Regional Funding Framework, the Queensland Government is supporting Study Cairns to deliver initiatives including the Cairns Student Hub and key student marketing and recruitment projects.

We continue to work with the Cairns international education and training sector to attract and nurture talented international students and position the region as an attractive study destination where natural wonders take centre stage in the classroom.

 Thousands of students from around the world are choosing Cairns and discovering the opportunities that quality education and training can bring; where you can start here and go anywhere.
