BHUBANESWAR:  Education is a key pillar in the relationship between Australia and India, said Australia’s High Commissioner to India Barry O’Farrell AO. 

“From university and academic collaborations to students and faculty collaborations, the relationship between the two countries is very strong,” Barry said in his address at the 9th Convocation Ceremony of Centurion University here recently. From December first eligible visa holders including those with student visa will again be able to go to Australia for studies. 

“I also look forward to welcome students from Australia to India,” he said. Barry congratulated the degree holders and praised the university for adopting innovative approaches for imparting quality and skill-based education.
