Congratulations on considering becoming a member of Cairns’ peak international education and training industry body.
Today, Queensland’s two major services exports are tourism and education. International Education contributes over $4 billion to our economy and creates over 27,000 full-time equivalent jobs for Queenslanders including 435 jobs in Cairns.
It is estimated that International Education brings in over $165 million annually to Far North Queensland alone. On an annual basis, more than 25,000 international students choose to study in Cairns. In addition to its economic contribution, the International Education and Training industry promotes cultural diversity and enrichment, drives innovation and advancement, and gives individuals the skills and knowledge they need to transform their lives.
