Education and Research


The EU and Australia have a vibrant, longstanding relationship in the field of education that is further strengthened by the EU-Australia Framework Agreement. 

Study in Australia 

The Study in Australia website is an official site from the Australian Government that provides information for international students on a wide variety of topics relevant for studying in Australia, including the education system, scholarships, English courses and more. 

The Australian Government advises prospective students to enrol in registered courses and with registered institutions that are registered in the State or Territory in which the course is offered. The approved courses and institutions are listed on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

For information on visas for studying in Australia please visit the Department of Home Affairs website.

Australia Global Alumni Website

The Australian Government has created a virtual global network for international scholars and fellows who have studied in Australia and for Australians who have studied overseas.  Stay connected with your friends, build and mobilise your professional networks and celebrate your successes! 

Australians studying in Europe

The Delegation of the European Union to Australia provides information on educational opportunities within the European Union, including the Erasmus + programme, administered by the European Commission.


Research and science collaboration between Australia and Europe is longstanding and highly productive. In 1994, Australia became the first non-EU member country to sign a Science and Technology Agreement with the EU. Since then, cooperation has been active and steadily increasing in a diverse range of research areas.

The Partnering with Australia on Innovation, Science and Research booklet outlines the range of opportunities for international organisations and individuals to partner with Australia on cutting-edge innovation, science and research. It showcases Australia’s credentials and gives information on the range of Australian Government initiatives supporting international innovation, science and research connections.

EURAXESS Australia & New Zealand is a service funded by the European Commission to link researchers in Australia and New Zealand with Europe, providing information about European research, career opportunities, international collaboration & networking possibilities
