Education Adelaide is charged with developing and expanding South Australia's share of the national education export market by promoting Adelaide as a centre of education excellence and highlighting the many advantages for international students who choose to live, study and work in Adelaide.
Established in November 1998 under the Public Corporations Act, Education Adelaide reports to the Minister for Employment, Training and Further Education. The organisation grew out of the former Education Industry Development Council (EIDC), which aimed to promote and market the export potential of the state's education industry.
The organisation's stakeholders include key South Australian Government agencies and education providers, and Education Adelaide is committed to fostering and strengthening these ties.
The State Government funds Education Adelaide through the Department of Further Education, Employment Science and Technology (DFEEST). Principal funding is also provided through the Adelaide City Council and South Australia's public universities: The University of Adelaide; Flinders University; and the University of South Australia.
Education Adelaide's membership program also provides more than 42 participating institutions (including Carnegie Mellon University from the United States and Cranfield University from the United Kingdom) with key market intelligence and access to a diverse range of innovative, dynamic marketing opportunities and community support programs for students.
