Australias Education Exports on a Growth Path

Australia Education Likely To Grow As An International Students

Australias education sector has been steadily growing over the last decade, especially in the aspect of education exports, which is measured by the total revenues from International Students. The current figures from a report published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) indicate that Australias education exports are likely to grow to more than 29 Billion USD in 2017, which would represent an increase of 16% over the last year.

What Are Education Exports And Why Is It An Important Metric?

In layman terms, education export is a term that indicates the total revenues from international students who come to Study Abroad in Australia, and it is comprised of student expenses on tuition, living expenses, expenses incurred for accommodation and travel during their Study Abroad stint in Australia. To put it more succinctly it is the sum total of all the expenditures incurred by all international students while they Study Abroad in Australia.

Most of the growth in education exports has been fueled by tertiary institutes of learning, which include colleges and universities. According to the Chief Executive of Universities Australia, Belinda Robinson, International Education is one of the core components of the Australian economy and contributes to cultural insights, diplomacy and trade and business links.

The steady growth in the education export metric for Australia indicates that the country is a popular destination for international students, with the number of students coming to study abroad in Australia steadily growing. This is in large part due to the excellent faculty and research facilities as well as top of the class infrastructure that is prevalent in most universities in Australia. The increase in education exports has now placed education exports as the third largest revenue streams from exports for the country, according to the Minister of Education and Training in Australia.

International students are increasingly opting for Australia as their first choice destination when it comes to studying abroad. According to the report released by ABS, the percentage of students who opted for Australia as their first choice to study abroad has increased by 6% over the last two years. The education export sector has not just increased export revenues but has also been instrumental in creating 130,000 jobs in the country.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
