Students of Dhaka’s International Turkish Hope School have won a study trip to visit the University of Technology (UTS) in Sydney, Australia as winners of the Bangladesh schools video competition 2017.
The Australian Trade and Investment Commission announced the result on Thursday.
Speaking about the competition, Peter Coleman, Trade Commissioner, Australian Trade and Investment Commission, said: “This competition has broadened the horizons of students from Bangladesh and exposed them to new study options to consider, particularly in fields that link to careers of the future. We look forward to having the winners in Australia soon.”
He also said: “Australia is amongst the top three international education destination for Bangladeshi undergraduate and post-graduate students, with over 6,000 Bangladeshi students currently studying in Australia.”
“We would like to invite more students from Bangladesh to study in Australia in courses where Australia is a world leader, including educational programmes in archaeology, earth & marine sciences, mineral & mining engineering, environmental sciences, nursing, pharmacy & pharmacology and veterinary science,” he further added.
Australia is also a significant international education destination for emerging or future careers in areas ranging from technology, digital, robotics, media & entertainment, scientific research, health, future materials and so on.
These programmes will provide students from Bangladesh the foundation for a global career in the areas of future employment growth, said Peter Coleman.
