37 Filipino scholars set to study in Australia

Thirty-seven Filipino leaders are heading to Australia this January 2020 to pursue postgraduate studies in areas that are key to Philippine development such as trade and economics, digital economy, infrastructure and smart cities, and peace and development. Before leaving for Australia, the scholars underwent a pre-departure briefing to prepare them for living and studying in Australia, and to help them finalise their re-entry action plans (REAPs).
