On 24 November 2020, the Victorian Government announced funding of $33.4 million over one year to support the short-term economic recovery of the international education sector, and to continue support for international students.

The International Education Short-Term Recovery Plan outlines a comprehensive package of initiatives that will reset and stimulate the sector. This investment will also lay the path for a new long-term International Education Strategy to be released mid-2021.

Further details on the implementation of each initiative will be released shortly.
