Your Lifelong Connection to Australia
Australia China Alumni Association
The Australia China Alumni Association (ACAA) was established in 2007 with the support of the Australian Ambassador to China. After almost 15 years of operation and growth, the ACAA now communicates with a network of over 26000+ Australian alumni across China. As a non-for-profit organization, the ACAA is funded through our unviersity partners and corporate partners and is supported by the Australian Government in China.
The ACAA greatly appreciates all of the on-going support provided by its partner universities, by the Australian Embassy Beijing, by the Australian Consulate Generals (Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenyang) and by Austrade. Such support has enabled the ACAA to develop into Australia’s largest people-to-people alumni network in China.
The ACAA is open to and serves all China-based alumni and Chinese students of Australian universities and provides a variety of services, programs and events, including its annual flagship Alumni Awards, Mentor Program, Alumni Welcome Back Receptions, Career Development Events and Industry Discussion Forums. The ACAA provides a platform to both showcase Australian alumni’s contributions to the various commercial and cultural exchanges between Australia and China and to help alumni across China to reconnect.
