Research snapshot: Jobs supported by international students studying in Australia

29 Mar 2019

Australian international education, as well as being one of Australia’s largest export industries and contributing nearly $35 billion to the Australian economy in 2018, is also a significant creator of jobs in Australia. Those jobs are not just in the education sector, but also across a wide range of primary and service industries. The nearly-700,000 international students studying in Australia in 2018 purchased visas, compulsory private health insurance and paid full tuition fees, on top of purchasing routine consumer goods and services while in Australia.

The full snapshot is available on the website of the Department of Education and Training.
