Australian Education in the Philippines

 

Australian Education in the Philippines

An Australian education equips students with the knowledge, skills and networks that will last a lifetime — and gives every student the foundation they need for a “Future Unlimited,” Australia’s brand for its international education offerings.

Australian education focuses on the real world and encourages students to develop ideas that solve today’s challenges — and those of tomorrow. Australia has an international reputation for discovery and innovation. With a history of academic excellence, Australia is home to some of the world’s leading education institutions, researchers and academics. Australian qualifications are recognised by leading professional associations and employers in the Philippines and abroad.

We are pleased that Australian qualifications and courses are offered in various fields to Filipinos through local campuses and facilities. The opportunity is open for Filipinos to take the first step to becoming world-class and discover a “Future Unlimited” through an Australian education here in the Philippines.
 

Vocational education and training (VET)

Australian vocational education and training (VET) providers focus on the needs of the industry, providing quality training and connecting skills with job outcomes. Some of these courses are now offered in the Philippines through training partners duly assessed and approved to offer Australian programs.

Designed and delivered with the involvement of employers and combining classroom and hands-on learning, the Australian VET system offers practical, up-to-date, work-ready skills to students in countries such as the Philippines. These qualities have been recognised by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) as the strengths of the Australian VET system.

Many VET courses incorporate a period of on-site learning, which gives students priceless industry experience in a genuine work environment. As well, VET teaching staff are not just industry aware but have actual experience in their field of expertise and properly certified to teach and assess courses overseas.
 

Higher Education

Australian degree programs encourage innovative, creative and independent thinking and aim to develop graduates who are equipped to find employment all over the world. Australian institutions offer a diverse range of courses and Australian qualifications are highly regarded by the world’s leading employers.

Our institutions have strong links to counterparts all over the world, including partnerships with education institutions in the Philippines. These connections give Australian institutions a truly global perspective while enhancing the character of Australian education, making Australian qualifications highly regarded by employers both here and abroad.
