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 as its second-largest services export.

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 (IETU – International Education and Training Unit) 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.
