Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the proportion of overseas students that are enrolled at university, per the number of universities within each Australian state, for the year 2014. This number is represented in thousands.
According to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), international students are those who travel to a country different from their own for the purpose of tertiary study. Despite this, the definition of an international student varies in each country according to their national education system. The state with the highest number of international students per number of universities is Victoria, at 13,602. The state with the lowest is the Northern Territory at 1,820.
*International students that are enrolled with private providers have been added to this count, however, only the number of university institutions have been used to standardise the data.
