This is welcome news for the international education sector; skilled migration and population policy. It is likely to drive greater investment in education infrastructure for Perth which will benefit all students. The WA Govt deserves recognition for recognising the need for a shift in policy.

Excellent outcome all round. This win has shown the power of an integrated solution. The power of a strong reasoned case based on the evidence of poor indicators of growth. This was an argument that couldn’t be ignored by government. Well done everyone. Robynne Walsh founder Phoenix Academy
