Welcoming International Education Agents to the Gold Coast

Last week we hosted 21 education agents from key markets including Brazil, China, India, Colombia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, and Chile as part of our International Education Agent Famil 🌟

Over five days the agents explored numerous educational institutions and discovered many of the experiences that Gold Coast offers.

Over the past six years, Study Gold Coast Famil's has provided invaluable opportunities for our member institutions to showcase their courses, campuses and offerings while allowing education agents to truly experience what life is like for students on the Gold Coast.

"Taipei to the Gold Coast" is an initiative in partnership with Australian International Student Tours that fosters cultural exchange by welcoming students from the Gold Coast's sister city Taipei. πŸ€πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡ΌπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Our partnership encompasses various sectors, but we particularly emphasise educational collaboration, aligning with Taiwan's "Bilingual 2030" policy.

Study Gold Coast plays a pivotal role in supporting this endeavour, facilitating a range of educational experiences on the Gold Coast.

These experiences not only enhance students' English proficiency but also cultivate their intercultural competencies, enriching their overall learning journey.

This week our guests visited the Gold Coast Student Hub to check out the amazing facilities we offer students once they are here, so they have a Home away from Home.



Join us to celebrate the extraordinary contribution of women in education, tourism, events, arts and culture and other key industry sectors as we for International Women’s Day on the Gold Coast.

Hear from an extraordinary panel featuring The Honourable Kate Jones, with over two decades of government leadership; Karyn Murphy, rugby league legend turned coach; Lauren Watson, an artist challenging disability norms; and Bonnie Hancock, the record-breaking ironwoman who paddled around Australia on a surf ski. Together, these women offer a dynamic blend of experience, resilience, and empowerment.

A range of prizes will also be on offer with all proceeds raised to be donated to local charity Support The Girls.

Date: Friday, 8th March 2024
Time: 12pm – 3pm
Venue: Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
Parking: Complimentary parking available onsite


The Honourable Kate Jones
Kate has over 20 years of experience in senior government roles, notably serving as a Minister in the Queensland Government across various portfolios. She played a pivotal role in the successful delivery of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and led economic responses during the pandemic. Throughout her career, Kate has demonstrated strong leadership in crisis management, strategy development, and partnerships, with a passion for promoting economic growth and community development, notably seen in her appointment to the board of Experience Gold Coast.

Karyn Murphy APM
A rugby league icon and former Australian representative, Karyn boasts a stellar career in law enforcement alongside her sporting achievements. The talented halfback took part in four World Cup campaigns, steering Australia to victory as skipper in 2013. A serving police officer for 26 years, Karyn joined the NRL in 2015 as the Senior Investigator for the game’s Integrity Unit. Transitioning into coaching and development roles, she became the second female NRL/NRLW coach and led the Gold Coast Titans NRLW team to their first Premiership Grand Final in 2023.

Lauren Watson
Lauren's journey as an artist with a disability serves as a testament to her resilience, creativity, and commitment to challenging societal norms and perceptions surrounding disability. Through her body of work, she delves deep into the intricacies of (dis)ableism, identity, and personal experiences, pushing boundaries and redefining the capabilities of the physical body. Collaborating with renowned artists and companies, Lauren has paved the way for meaningful conversations around disability and inclusion within the arts sector.

Bonnie Hancock
Bonnie, a former professional ironwoman, broke world records by paddling around Australia on a surf ski. The 12,700km journey took Bonnie eight gruelling months, breaking the world record for the fastest and youngest to paddle around Australia. Through determination, grit, and mental toughness, Bonnie conquered a number of amazing feats. Her story of resilience, breaking stereotypes, and believing in oneself resonates with diverse audiences, as she shares her journey as a corporate speaker and coach.
