Data and research

For: 

The department provides data, research and analysis on many aspects of international education in Australia and globally.

The International Research and Analysis Unit updates data on international students studying in Australia on a monthly basis. Other information on offshore education delivery by Australian providers and Australian students studying overseas is published as one page fact sheets (Research Snapshots). As student mobility continues to grow globally, international collaboration in data and information sharing is becoming more important. The International Research and Analysis Unit has built collaborative networks with key international organisations including the British Council and the USA Institute of International Education, which hosts Project Atlas, an international student mobility database.
