The Education Division of ASCC has been formed simultaneously with Chamber itself. Our aim is to improve education in both countries, Australia and the Republic of Serbia, especially through international cooperation. In this cooperation, we engage with diplomatic representatives, private and public corporations, and educational institutions to create links for practical and modern future education. On our way to this goal, we bring two communities together and focus on the improved student experience. We are acting within three Main Projects (MPs).
