The MIA's Australian Centre for Migration Education and Research has been established to enhance a range of MIA activities in the fields of education and research. The Centre's formation benefits MIA members and their clients by broadening the Institute's role in these fields.
The Australian Centre for Migration Education and Research is a significant step towards realising the MIA's vision for a society where migration is valued and the professionalism of MIA migration advisors is recognised. Our objective is to ensure that migration services and outcomes for Australia are of the highest possible standards. We believe that this will be achieved by a combination of research-led education and evidence-led policy. The best teaching is always informed by the latest research, and the best policy is set in the context of research-based evidence.
The Centre's goals are to:
+ promote the value of migration to Australia
+ lead and facilitate research on migration matters
+ provide quality professional education and training to migration agents
