Australian study into welfare and experience of international students

Australian study into international students

International students left in the shadows. AUSTRALIA had 632,000 international students last year, and the number continues to grow. Their spending on education, transport, food, housing and other items generates $17 billion a year. That alone makes them important, but there’s more to it than money.

As people, international students live in the shadows. It wasn’t until the spate of bashings affecting south Asians in 2008 and 2009 that many Victorians began to glimpse the difficulties international students can encounter. Four in five are from Asia. Most are non-white. Though Australia is moving away from its old identity as a bastion of the ”British race” in Asia, and our public culture is tolerant and cosmopolitan, non-white people can still face extra problems.
