The number of international students studying in Australia rose by more than 10 per cent last year to its highest level ever. New statistics released by the Federal Department of Education and Training show there were 554,000 international students in the country in 2016. But as the sector booms, some have raised concerns that services and conditions for students are not keeping up. Jarni Blakkarly reports.
More international students than ever before are studying in Australia, easily surpassing half a million across universities, TAFE, English language schools and high schools.
The latest figures from the Australian Department of Education and Training show education exports brought in a record $21.8 billion in 2016.
