The Australian Government has recently released the Strategy for International Education 2021-2030. In this, there are measures to help support the repaid return of the international students to the country when the border opens again on December 1st 2021. The strategy of the international Students also highlights the direction for a more sustainable sector in the medium term.

The strategy for international education also outlines other key objectives for the medium term like achieving a better alignment between Australian skill shortages and the courses studied.

According to the Minister for Education, Hon. Alan Tudge, the international students are very important for the Australian universities as well as their diplomacy, economy and community. The Government of Morrison’s 10-year strategy for international education will position Australia for a strong COVID pandemic recovery.

It will also create new opportunities for a more sustainable and diverse sector. Specifically, with the diverse international students, the financial risk will be reduced along with the maximizing of the Australian and International students' experience. New transparency measures will be issued by the Australian Government around student diversity including the diversification index.

Ways for International Students in Australia

Particularly the strategy outlines the growth opportunities for the international students through greater in-country course provision. There is great demand for higher learning in countries in the region which the country’s universities could help meet with different product offerings. The UK government has already well down this path with 58% of its international students studying offshore, whereas only 20% of Australia’s international students are studying offshore.

Here are the views of three Ministers of the Australian Government regarding the International Students and the new strategies.

Alan Tudge - Minister for Education and Youth

According to Minister Tudge, Australian public universities are required to give priority to having diversity in their classrooms. There are some of the public universities that are having around 80% of their international students from the same country. This results in financial risks for those institutions but it may also diminish the experience of both the international and Australian students. Tudge also informed that there is a significant opportunity to enhance the international student market of the country through high-quality offshore courses, just like what the UK government did.

Dan Tehan: Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment

As per Dan Tehan by attracting international students is Australia’s biggest services export earner. The country is known around the globe for providing world-class education. He also said that with the help of this strategy, the Australian government is going to promote the country’s education sector to new as well as the existing market to give a boost to its global reputation as a top-quality education provider.

Alex Hawke - Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs

As per the Minister for Immigration, Alex Hawke, COVID had a significant impact on the visa arrangement of many international students including those in the country and on those visa holders who could not travel to the country to complete their courses or to study.

According to Hawke, the changes made to the visa settings will be of great importance as they will provide greater opportunities to the international students and graduates to study, work and live in Australia. With these changes, thousands of new students' visa applications will be encouraged. This will also help the existing students in extending the opportunities for staying in the country.

Minister Hawke said that he is looking forward to welcoming the international students back to the country very soon, enabling these students to once again re-engage with the Australian schools, universities, English Language and vocational training and education providers face-to-face.
