25 Aug 2020

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment has released year to date (YTD) June 2020 international student data. Compared to YTD June 2019, key results include:

  • Total enrolments increased by 2.5%, while commencements decreased by 8.3%
  • VET had the strongest growth in enrolments (17.2%) and was the only sector that experienced growth in commencements (up 9.2%).
  • Fourteen of the top 25 markets by enrolments experienced increases.
  • China, India and Nepal accounted for half (50.6%) of all enrolments.


The June 2020 data should be interpreted with caution. Under the current unprecedented conditions an enrolment does not confirm if a student was in Australia at the time of reporting.

MIP subscribers can view the latest data on the Student data dashboard, and a public monthly summary is also available.
