Factors that influence international students in Australia

What factors do you think are currently having a major influence on the numbers and types of international students that are studying in Australia?

* The proactive federal government approach to attracting international students and demonstrating a commitment to quality of education and support services has boosted numbers.

* The encouragement for industry to develop and deliver a diversity of programs and services for international students has helped broaden the industry to accommodate greater numbers.

* Current DIAC regulations are having an affect on types of students – e.g. greater opportunities for students to take up permanent residency have boosted numbers of students from countries with propensity to seek PR, in sectors and courses of study lined to skilled occupation shortages in Australia.
