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

  • Total enrolments decreased by 3.5 per cent, while commencements decreased by 17.9 per cent
  • VET was the only sector that experienced growth in enrolments (up 13.5 per cent) and commencements (up 4.5 per cent)
  • Eight of the top 25 markets by enrolments experienced increases
  • China, India and Nepal accounted for half (51.2 per cent) of all enrolments.

NOTE:

The August 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.
