Study Hunter launched!

Minister for Regional Development, Minister for Skills and Minister for Small Business, the Hon John Barilaro MP, launched RDA Hunter's new initiative, Study Hunter on 22 July 2015.

Study Hunter showcases the Hunter's advantages as a location in which to live, work and study to international students and their families. It incorporates a broad range of activities focused on raising the Hunter's profile internationally.

Study Hunter is regional development initiative which showcases the region's lifestyle advantages, vibrant youth culture; established social and business networks and welcoming community; connectivity with Australian destinations; quality education institutions; career opportunities; and economic capacity as well as practical information about living in the region.

Study Hunter also incorporates an international student ambassador program featuring students from Hunter TAFE and the University of Newcastle. One of the ambassadors' primary roles is to welcome new students to the region in a mentoring capacity. They will also help promote the initiative and the Hunter through promotional activities.

Study Hunter is one of eight projects to receive funding through the StudyNSW Partner Projects initiative.
