About StudyPerth

StudyPerth provides a leadership role in building and promoting the value of international education in Western Australia, positioning Perth as an internationally recognised study destination, offering productive learning pathways in a welcoming and vibrant location.

StudyPerth's key priorities are to support a positive student experience; champion diversity and ensure cultural integration; promote opportunities for employment and increased employability; demonstrate the continuing strength of WA's economy; and highlight post-study visa and migration opportunities.

Originally known as Perth Education City (PEC), StudyPerth was founded in 1987 when key institutions identified a need to collaborate more cohesively on international education issues.

Today, StudyPerth is committed to partnering with and unifying its member institutions to position Perth as a first-choice study destination.

StudyPerth is also strongly supported by the Government of Western Australia's Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.

Our relaunch as 'StudyPerth' was in response to the need for a new identity for international education in a new, internationally recognised Perth.

Our vision is that:

Perth is recognised as the international education destination of choice: offering students a stimulating education and training experience, an enviable lifestyle in a safe location, and enhanced employment and migration opportunities.

StudyPerth has three objectives, designed to ensure international students have the chance to discover Perth and the opportunity to live, learn and launch their education and training in Perth’s unique environment. Our three, clear objectives are to:

  1. Lead the promotion of the WA international education value proposition.
  2. Develop and strengthen the WA international education value proposition to improve student experience and outcomes.
  3. Advocate, represent and collaborate to advance the interests of international education in WA.
