According to the latest OECD indicators on education, the most significant feature of the tertiary education landscape in Australia is the large proportion of international students. Australia is a key destination for students from around the world, hosting more than 6% of the world’s foreign students. This figure places Australia as the third most popular destination after the United States (16% of international students worldwide) and the United Kingdom (13%). One in five of the students enrolled in tertiary education in Australia in 2011 were international students, the highest proportion among all OECD countries, against an OECD average of 7%. The country receives almost 20 times more international students than the number of Australian students who choose to study in tertiary programs abroad.
