More international students could be coming to Queensland after Premier Campbell Newman confirmed he will be holding talks with Indian and Saudi Arabian leaders at the G20 summit.
“We want their students starting here and we are very much saying that we’d like to see more of them coming in to Queensland,” Mr Newman said at the Queensland Convention Centre.
“The other night we were talking to the Saudi Arabian Ambassador, their Finance Minister and the Head of their Central Bank and we were talking about international students.”
“We are also excited to role out the welcome mat for young Indian students coming to study in our universities.
“It’s a safe, secure environment, a welcoming environment and we would like more of their young people to study here.
Latest Australian universities numbers show one in four Queensland tertiary students are registered as international.
