This paved the way for business opportunities for Australian education providers to provide innovative and more accessible education to Indian students. This provides a solid foundation for educational institutions to consider new ways of partnering with each other.
Also announced a new scholarship
This is a great job that will have really tangible benefits. The Prime Minister also announced a new scholarship for Indian students who want to study in Australia. He said that I am happy to announce a new scholarship. It is for Indian students to study in Australia for up to four years. The scholarship is part of a wider Friendship Program that seeks to foster cultural, educational and community ties between Australia and India.
