Your opinion matters

Australia has over three million alumni located around the world and currently hosts more than half a million students from almost every nation, and at every level: ELICOS (English language), school, foundation studies and pathway programs, vocational education and training (VET), higher education (university level), and advanced research.

Every year, the Australian Government conducts research on the international student experience in Australia. More than 100,000 international students have already shared their opinions. 

These research findings are used to update and improve Study Australia student programs, online resources and information services. The SAP members also use survey results to continuously improve student experience programs in each study location and ensure that the international student experience in Australia continues to be among the world's best.
