Another positive trend for the higher education sector in Australia. In the last three months, 21% ▲ more #studentvisas were lodged than in the same period in 2020. December also had the 2nd largest number of student visas lodged since the start of the pandemic.  


A positive trend in the number of student visa holders in higher education programs in Australia. Since the lowest level was reported back in October, it has been continuously growing and we could expect a 12% increase by the end of February.

As expected, this is still below pre-pandemic levels but the positive trend is better than our original estimates.

To support our sector, Studymove is offering to cover the fee of three registrations to the 2021 Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) to members of the international education community who have been professionally affected by COVID-19.

Impact of Ranking and Student Fees

University rankings are clearly an important factor for international students and an essential element in the marketing mix of universities around the world. 

The impact of COVID-19 in the international education sector continues this year. Institutions are dealing with great uncertainties and the effects of border restrictions.


For that reason, last week we shared our 3rd Key Data Update of 2021 with our friends, clients and colleagues.


During the session, we shared our recent analysis of market trends, the economic drivers affecting border restrictions around the world and the expected impact of the vaccine roll-out for the international education sector in Australia and New Zealand.
