We make seven suggestions for inclusion in the new Strategy

  1. The student experience: implement a new consultative international student body to advise the National Council, Government and the sector on improving the student experience

  2. A forward-thinking Strategy: pandemic recovery as contextual rather than guiding principle

  3. Recognition of the diversity of student experiences and exposure to pandemic upheaval

  4. Onshore, online, offshore: international education in Australia should aspire to build all segments

  5. A big, bold approach to improve our competitiveness

  6. Protecting students and institutions: caution when integrating international education with the short-term needs of the Australian labour market

  7. Appoint an international education champion to build social licence for the sector.
