The higher education sector in Australia was responsible for just under 70% of total international education exports in 2013, shown by data released by the Ministry of Education. International education contributed $15 billion to Australia’s economy in 2013, a 3.8% rise on the previous year’s $14.5 billion, the first increase in 3 years.

This is great news for Australia’s number one export service industry, although income has yet to return to its post-slump peak of $16.1 billion in 2010.

There are many contributing factors to this upward turn in fortune such as the easing of Australian student visa processing criteria and the change / growth of overseas markets.
