International Education and Training in Queensland
The International Education and Training (IET) sector is a trade and investment success story in Queensland.
It is a significant contributor to the Queensland economy, and was the state’s highest value services export in 2018 (worth just over $5 billion).
The IET industry also enriches our community – culturally and socially. It strengthens Queensland’s relationships with other countries and our global connectivity, standing and reputation.
TIQ’s education specialists, Study Queensland, collaborate with private and public providers to strengthen Queensland’s international education and training industry.
We actively promote our Study Queensland brand and profile our education and training strengths in overseas markets.
