Which states are targeting overseas students in Australia

International education is the third largest export in Australia, following iron ore and coal. It is a $28 billion dollar industry. With such cash inflow into the Australian economy, people naturally assume that most students are being attracted to Sydney and Melbourne. Though these two are the major players, the other states in Australia have also joined in the race to get a chunk of the international student pie.

Here are some states in Australia who are trying to attract foreign students:

  1. Western Australia: In the recent past, the WA Govt. had removed a migration point advantage for the overseas students willing to settle in the state. This move was taken to deter international students. Naturally, this resulted in the decline in the number of foreign students coming to the state. This led the WA Govt. to introduce a Skilled Graduate Migration List. This list was made to retain students with doctoral degrees, masters, and honors with a promise of transitioning into Permanent Residency.
  2. South Australia: The international student market ranks second in the state of SA trailing only the wine industry. Plans have been developed to construct a 36-story high-rise in the heart of the capital city, Adelaide. The skyscraper would be taller than the popular Rundle Mall and would be the tallest of its sort in the city. The building would be able to house 2800 students, as per Studies in Australia.
  3. Queensland: There has been a 30% rise in revenue in the rural town of Townsville due to international students flocking the area. The Great Barrier Reef has been a great attraction to students interested in Science and Environmental Studies.
