Australians get that international education is excellent for us. Universities Australia says 81 per cent of people surveyed, “grasp that international education makes a major contribution to national prosperity.” UA adds that it is no coincidence Australia “is tipped” to over-take the UK as the world’s second destination for international students.
Sound like the preamble for an ask? It’s not, UA isn’t calling for a policy change or more funding. The lobby just wants to share some good news.
