Australian Universities Expect International Student Enrollments to Return to Pre-COVID Levels by 2025
In a parliamentary hearing held on Thursday in Sydney, senior executives from Australia’s top universities projected a return to pre-pandemic levels of international student enrollment and revenue by 2025. The expected resurgence is anticipated to be driven by China, India, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
To attract students, the universities plan to increase investment by expanding offshore campuses. This optimistic outlook comes at a time when the Australian economy is facing challenges such as rising interest rates and inflation.
The universities expressed confidence in their ability to recover from the pandemic’s impact and contribute to the country’s economic growth.
