International students are again showing strong interest in Australian education, with enrolments rising 11 per cent in the first seven months of 2016. Vocational education and English language courses are particularly popular. Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham expects even stronger growth to be stimulated by the National Strategy for International Education.

Australia’s education export industry was worth $A16.4bn in 2010, compared with just $A7.9bn in 2004. This fell to $A14.6bn in fiscal 2013, but there has since been a rebound in international student enrolments as the Australian dollar weakened. It is estimated that if the number of foreign students continues to grow by about five per cent annually in coming years, the nation’s education export market could be worth $A30.8bn by 2020
