One in half a million - why international students
study in australia  

17 October 2018

More than 540,000 international students now choose to study in Australia.

Educating some of the world’s best and brightest talent in Australia brings in $32 billion for our national economy and supports more than 130,000 Australian jobs.

But behind these numbers is the story of each student who has their formative years at an Australian university and the deep personal connections they forge here.

Universities Australia recently launched a new phase of its #1inHalfaMillion campaign — a series of videos featuring international students talking about their time studying in Australia.

The latest videos feature students from countries as diverse as the United States, India, China, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, and Zimbabwe.

What they have in common is the genuine affection they feel for Australia and their appreciation for the quality and rigour of their university education.
