About StudyNSW

Who we are

The NSW Government established StudyNSW in 2014 to increase the number of international students studying in Sydney and NSW or with our education providers overseas, improve the quality of their experience while in the State and recognise their contributions to our communities.

StudyNSW is a dedicated unit within the NSW Department of Industry responsible for delivering the 10-year international education strategy outlined in the Industry Action Plan and positioning NSW in key markets as a leader in international education that launches global careers.

StudyNSW has four main functions:

  1. Marketing, promotion and research;
  2. Development of policy and advocacy to enhance the competitiveness of international education in NSW;
  3. Delivery and evaluation of strategies and programs to improve the experiences of international students in NSW, and
  4. Identification and generation of international market development opportunities and new technology-enabled models of delivery.

StudyNSW International Education Strategy

StudyNSW has developed an International Education Strategy which outlines the value of international education to NSW. The document highlights strategies and projects being delivered by the NSW Government through StudyNSW to enhance the experience of international students studying in Sydney and NSW and to grow the sector sustainably.
