The Australian Alumni Program aims to provide a range of business, community and networking opportunities to unite and support graduates of Australian universities as well as other institutions of higher learning.

More than 150 guests attended the annual Australian Alumni Awards in the Astor Ballroom at the St Regis Hotel in Bangkok. The awards provided an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Alumni members who have applied their Australian education in their professional endeavours in Thailand.

H.E Mr Paul Robilliard the Australian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand addressed guests, highlighting the Australian Government’s commitment to fostering strong educational connections between Australia and Thailand through both the Global Alumni program and the New Colombo Plan. Khun Panita Vongkusolkit and Khun Prom Sirisant were announced as Global Alumni Ambassadors, which is part of Government’s effort to raise the profile of Australia’s world class education system and strengthen the connections between Australia and rest of the world.
