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

Many overseas medical students will not gain internships in 2015. An audit predicts that 240 students will not be offered a position on graduation. These will all be international students as places are offered to domestic students first. The Australian Medical Students’ Association estimates that about 160 graduates will be forced to go overseas. A shortage of 2,700 doctors is forecast by 2025
