Universities Australia has conducted International Links surveys on a regular basis since 1991. The previous International Links survey was completed in 2016.

The information for this International Links summary was supplied by Universities Australia member universities in response to a survey undertaken mid 2018. The survey was aimed at identifying formal institution-to-institution agreements between Australian universities and overseas higher education institutions. Agreements include cooperation facilitating student exchanges, study abroad arrangements, staff exchanges, academic/research collaboration and short-term mobility programs.

Universities were asked to indicate the name of their overseas partner institution, what activities are covered in the agreement, the year in which the agreement was first signed and whether the agreement is currently active.
