International Students in Australia
International students are a crucial part of Australia’s economy and tourism sector. In recent years we have had over 899,000 students enroll in education programs across Australia with over 350,000 enrolled in Higher Education studies in the last year alone.
With a substantial economic benefit to the Australian economy, no doubt Australia loves opening its doors to international students every year. After coal and iron ore, international education is Australia’s third biggest export industry.
International students seeking permanent residence apply under the Australian skilled migration program. Over the past five years former students have made up between six and nine per cent of the family stream and between 14 and 22 per cent of the skill stream.
Nikee Education Advisors provides students with educational enrolment support, visa advice and on-one-on tailored consultations to solve all your problems regarding your studies and visa requirements.
