Australian education goes mobile
Lao students can now research and plan options for study in Australia via mobile phone and tablet thanks to the new Study in Australia website.
The website, www.studyinaustralia.gov.au, is the Australian government's official source of information for overseas students wishing to come to the country to study.
According to the Australian Embassy in Vientiane, a mobile-friendly design makes it easy for students to browse available courses and institutions on any handheld or desktop device.
Potential students can also interact via social media, access information about scholarships and read or watch stories from other Lao students.
Australian Ambassador to Laos, Ms Lynda Worthaisong, said the Study in Australia site was a reliable, comprehensive source of up-to-date information, with links to other education providers as well as details about living in Australia.
“Australia has a range of internationally-recognised institutions offering high quality courses across the education spectrum,” she said.
“Now Lao students can learn about them quickly and easily in a format that suits their lifestyle.”
The new site, produced and maintained by Austrade, the Australian government's trade, investment and education promotion agency, went live on June 17.
In the coming months additional functions will be added, including a personalised study guide.
