Education Network Overview

Australia’s education system is recognised as one of the best in the world. It’s also one of Australia’s biggest sectors, and it’s growing rapidly. Education affects every Australian, for a large part of their life, and that’s why it’s so important to so many people. Broadly, it is divided into three main categories: early learning and primary school; secondary school and tertiary (including university and vocational training).

The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian Financial Review take education as seriously as you do, covering everything from breaking news, to opinion and special reports, in our print and online publications.

Focussing on topical issues as well as information about schooling and training options, education contains advice for students and parents on topics such as managing the VCE or HCE year to subject and course selection for career path planning.

Our education solutions are created to target and engage our parent audience, millennials and professionals who are keen to learn more.

Besides our masthead brands, there are more tailored solutions available specifically designed to reach your target market across our entire Fairfax network.
