New South Wales (NSW) is the financial and economic powerhouse of Australia, with an economy expected to grow to $1 trillion by 2030. Its famous capital city, Sydney, attracts global leaders and innovators and is the national headquarters for some of the world’s most successful businesses, including Google, Amazon and Microsoft.

NSW has 11 universities, including 6 ranked within the world’s top 200, located in pristine outback, country, alpine, coastal, subtropical or urban landscapes.

In addition to Sydney, 4 other study destinations — the North Coast, South Coast, Hunter Region and Country NSW  — offer exceptional education and employment opportunities in internationally relevant industries.

Where better for the marine biologists of tomorrow to learn than the stunning Solitary Islands Marine Park in Coffs Harbour? The next-generation agtech leaders can build lasting connections while on working farms and innovation hubs in rural communities across NSW.

Warm, welcoming, truly multicultural and with award-winning beaches, food and entertainment, NSW is the right choice for students seeking internationally recognised qualifications and successful global careers.
