Australian education goes mobile with new official website
20 June 2013
Filipino students can research and plan their Australian education via mobile phone and tablet on the new Study in Australia website, www.studyinaustralia.gov.au, the official source of information on studying in Australia.
A mobile-friendly design makes it easy for students to browse courses and institutions on any handheld or desktop device, wherever they may be in the world.
Potential students can also interact via social media, access information about scholarships and read or watch the stories of other students from the Philippines and elsewhere.
The new site updates and improves the previous Study in Australia website, featuring an enhanced search function and a log-in that allows users to bookmark information and favourites.
It also includes detailed information about Australia’s states and territories and updated content including news and event feeds, all in a selection of languages.
H.E. Bill Tweddell, Australia’s Ambassador to the Philippines said the Study in Australia site was a reliable, comprehensive source of up-to-date information, with links to other education providers as well as details about living in Australia.
“An Australian education opens huge opportunities for graduates, enriching their personal and professional lives,” Ambassador Tweddell said.
“Australia has a fantastic range of internationally recognised institutions offering high quality courses across the education spectrum.
“Now Filipino students can learn about them quickly and easily in a format that suits their lifestyle.”
The new site, produced and maintained by Austrade, the Australian Government’s trade, investment and education promotion agency, goes live this month.
In the coming months, additional functions will be added, including a personalised study guide.
The site is a practical, friendly and engaging resource for existing and prospective students, based on testing and research.
It is also designed to more effectively refer students to the websites of relevant institutions.
The Ambassador said Australia has a long history of welcoming international students from all parts of the world.
“Filipino students have plenty of choices: they can study at university, learn English, attend a Vocational Education and Training (VET) college, or go to school.”
“All the information you need to begin creating your own Future Unlimited is available on www.studyinaustralia.gov.au.”
