The Australia China Business Council Victoria invites you to the Australia-China Education Forum 2024

Victoria boasts a robust academic reputation, attracting over 170,000 international students, with approximately 30% hailing from China. Despite this, many students face challenges with employability due to rapidly evolving global work dynamics that render curricula outdated. How do we effectively guide these students to enhance their employability and ensure market sustainability?

Join our expert speakers to take a deep dive into:

  • What employers are looking for in new graduates and how well is this being provided
  • Skills and student employability
  • Enhancing student experiences in a changing and dynamic global work environment

This event includes a half-day forum and buffet lunch
