According to a released report by Australia, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a fall in the number of international students in the nation. The report said that Australia has lost over 100,000 international students in the last financial year. The Australian universities are facing a more than 35% fall in the number of foreign student enrolment.

Phil Honeywood, Chief Executive at International Education Association, said that “the government needs to pay attention to these falling percentages of international students. The international education industry of the country has a worth of $40bn, and it is facing a lack across the states.”

The International education association has estimated that each student who was lost in 2020-21 had the worth of $60,000 in the Australian economy.

Chief executive at the Universities Australia Catriona Jackson also showed concern and said “that the uncertainty about the time when the international border of Australia will resume makes the students' recruiting process challenging. Jackson said that it has been more than a year now when students are facing this crisis and the borders are shut. Some students desire to come back and start the normal on-campus studies but the country's entering process is challenging.
