As Australian universities pitch to India, the US demonstrates it may not be all over for the China market
There were 1.095m international students in the US for its 2018-19 academic year, a marginal rise on the previous 12 months. China continued the largest source of students, with 365 000 across all programmes, up 1.7 per cent. The number of Chinese students in the US has grown through the trade-war Trump presidency.
But if China does turn-down for Australia, India is a better bet than the US. Australia does not rate a mention on the list of US students preferred study-abroad destinations.
