Multicultural community engagement with international education and training in the Northern Territory

Research output: Book/ReportOther reportpeer-review


The Northern Territory, and particularly Darwin, has been ‘multicultural’ since the 1880’s with the gold rush and pearling industries attracting people from China, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines and Timor-Leste. These immigrants stayed and together with people from many other countries today form the multicultural, welcoming society that is the Northern Territory.
The NT’s multicultural community is a point of distinction in attracting international students to study in the Northern Territory and for those students to enjoy and thrive on the experience once they are here. This study involved interviews with multicultural representatives in Darwin to better understand how they engage with international students and the opportunities to improve upon this in the future.
The study, conducted between May and June 2015, involved representatives of five multicultural community organisations, three consular missions and one organisation for young people, from amongst the priority partner countries identified in the NT International Education and Training Strategy (China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, the Philippines, South Korea, Timor Leste, Vietnam).
