StudyPerth

In collaboration with government, educational institutions and stakeholders, StudyPerth provides a leadership role in building the profile of international education within Western Australia, as well as interstate and internationally.

StudyPerth’s core business is to market Perth’s international education sector and to unify the member organisations to promote Perth as a first-choice global study destination.

StudyPerth is also the first point of contact for anyone seeking information about studying and living in Perth, as well as businesses looking to invest in the sector.

International education has been a strong focus in Western Australia for many years. StudyPerth was originally known as Perth Education City (PEC), an entity which originated in 1987 when key institutions identified a need to collaborate more cohesively on international education issues. In 1996 a registered association with a secretariat was launched as more institutions expressed an interest in becoming involved.

Current members include Western Australia’s six world-class universities, numerous vocational education providers, plus primary and secondary schools, as well as English language colleges from both the public and private sectors.

StudyPerth is committed to partnering with and uniting its member institutions to position Perth as the education destination of the future and so produce benefits for the entire sector.

StudyPerth’s recent brand relaunch re-focusses the unique position of Perth as an internationally recognised study destination that offers productive learning pathways in a welcoming and vibrant location.
