The unis with 30 per cent plus international students

The universities most-exposed to the international student market and the ones that aren’t

The Department of Education has compiled headline numbers on international students on-shore at Australian universities last year.

Those most dependent on students from all country-markets include Bond U (48 per cent), Torrens U (44 per cent) Uni Sydney (38 per cent), ANU (37 per cent), Uni Queensland (33 per cent), Uni Melbourne (32 per cent) and Monash U (30 per cent).

All expected, but Federation U is also up there, with 42 per cent.

Those which have never cracked the international market include; UNE (4 per cent), Uni Notre Dame Australia (2 per cent), Uni Southern Queensland and Murdoch U (9 per cent).

So, what about Macquarie U, where Vice Chancellor S Bruce Dowton says a volatile international market is one of the reasons he needs to make savings, including abolishing a faculty. At 21.1 per cent, just a touch under the national 21.9 per cent average.
