Australian Education Resources
Students from New Caledonia, French Polynesia and Wallis and Futuna can research and plan their Australian education via www.studyinaustralia.gov.au .
The site, managed by Austrade (the Australian Government’s trade, investment and education promotion agency) has a mobile-friendly design that makes it easy for students to browse courses and institutions on any handheld or desktop device.
Potential students can also interact via social media, access information about scholarships and discover the stories of other students from New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Wallis and Futuna or elsewhere.
The website includes information about Australia’s states and territories, as well as news and event feeds, in a selection of languages.
Whether you are interested in enrolling in an Australian university or Vocational Education and Training (VET) college, learning English, or attending school, we invite you to visit the website to try out its new features and to learn more about studying in Australia.

The Australia Awards scholarship and fellowship programs
The Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships funded by the Australian Government offering the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia and for high-achieving Australians to do the same overseas.
