The fairs will be held in Bogotá and Medellín in Colombia, as well as Lima, Peru and Santiago, Chile

The pavilions will be part of Austrade’s Australia Future Unlimited campaign, and will feature Australian state government bodies as well as education and training institutions.

“I am sure both Australian institutions and the attending students will benefit from this campaign”

“The Australian pavilions at the FPP fairs will ensure prospective international students gain a rich understanding of the quality, diversity and relevance of Australian education and training to a Latin American audience,” said Sofia Pereira, Austrade’s education manager for Latin America.

“Participating institutions will highlight programmes in strategic fields including engineering, health, water, mining, energy and agriculture, in addition to English language and a range of technical education programmes.”

Last year, over 7% of Australia’s international students came from Latin American countries.

John O’Connor, FPP’s regional director, said he is “very much looking forward to working with Austrade to help them meet their objectives in Latin America”.

“I am sure both Australian institutions and the attending students will benefit from this campaign,” he added.

The fairs will be held in Bogotá and Medellín in Colombia, Lima, Peru and Santiago, Chile.

FPP EDU Media has worked with other states, including organising the New Zealand government’s fairs in Latin America, and the Canadian government’s fairs in the Middle East and Latin America.
