Students in secondary school or college may have at one point or other wondered about the opportunity to furthering their studies abroad. But how do you know if it’s merely a flight of fancy or a prospect worth pursuing?

 

According to figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), more and more students are choosing to study overseas. The number of students enrolling outside their country of citizenship has increased fivefold over the past three decades, from from 0.8 million worldwide in 1975 to 4.1 million in 2010.

 

In 2011-2012, more than 1.5 million students pursued an education overseas in popular destinations including Australia, the United Kingdom and the US.

 

Australia’s academic reputation

Interestingly, a survey conducted by Australian-based education resources, services and technology provider Hobsons has found that teacher quality, subject availability and academic reputation were ranked first, second and third respectively as the most important factors for prospective international students when choosing a university, ahead of tuition fees, scholarships and living expenses.
