"This competition has broadened the horizons of students from Bangladesh and exposed them to new study options to consider, particularly in fields that link to careers of the future. We look forward to having the winners in Australia soon.”
According to Coleman, “Australia is amongst the top three international education destination for Bangladeshi undergraduate and post-graduate students, with over 6,000 Bangladeshi students currently studying in Australia.”
“We would like to invite more students from Bangladesh to study in Australia in courses where Australia is a world leader, including educational programmes in archaeology, earth & marine sciences, mineral & mining engineering, environmental sciences, nursing, pharmacy & pharmacology and veterinary science.”
Australia is also a significant international education destination for emerging or future careers in areas ranging from technology, digital, robotics, media & entertainment, scientific research, health, future materials and so on.
