Onshore International Student Sentiment Survey – second quarterly survey now open

13 Oct 2020

The Study Australia Partnership, a collaboration between Austrade and our state and territory destination agency partners, has launched the second quarterly onshore international student sentiment survey. The survey is open for responses until 9 November, 2020. Providers and partners are invited to promote the survey via international student networks. The project will provide insights to help shape international student support services and communications by sector stakeholders.

The second survey is now open, with responses accepted until 9 November, 2020. The survey should survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and eligible participants will go into a draw to win one of four AU$50 grocery e-gift cards, terms & conditions apply. The first quarterly survey was in field in July 2020 and received approximately 7,500 responses. Thank you to all those who promoted the survey and helped us achieve this great response rate.

Once again we ask education providers and partners to promote the survey to your international student cohorts. Social media tiles and suggested promotional copy can be found on the Study Australia Resource Hub.

Evidence-based understanding of international students’ concerns can help improve sector response measures designed to bolster Australia’s reputation as a safe and welcoming education destination. The surveys also identify how and where international students access information relating to their issues of concern. This data will enable more targeted and effective communications, including through Austrade’s Study Australia website and digital channels, peak bodies and education providers.

This initiative places international students’ wellbeing and their viewpoints at the heart of our work. Surveys are to be completed online and open to international students over 16 years of age, currently in Australia. At the end of the survey, respondents are guided to the Study Australia website containing information on student support, as well as state and territory measures.

Survey respondents also go into a draw to win one of four grocery e-gift cards, each to the value of AU$50, terms & conditions apply.
