In collaboration with governments, educational institutions and stakeholders, StudyPerth provides a leadership role in building the profile of international education in WA and overseas. It is also the first point of contact for anyone wishing to obtain information on studying and living in Perth. International education has always been a strong focus in Western Australia.
Originally called Perth Education City (PEC), the StudyPerth entity originated in 1987 when interested institutions identified a need to meet and discuss issues of common interest in regards to international education. Over time, more institutions expressed an interest in the group and in 1996, a registered association with its own secretariat was launched.
StudyPerth is now strongly supported by the Government of Western Australia through the Department of State Development and the Department of Education Services.
