Drop in international students could have ‘long-term impact’ on Australia

The number of international students applying to study at Australian universities has more than halved while borders remained closed due to COVID-19, new data shows.

Applications by international students to attend Australian universities have dropped 51 per cent since March this year, according to international student recruitment marketplace Adventus. 

The latest government figures for November show there are currently 259,752 student visa holders in Australia, more than half of whom are in higher education or postgraduate research.
