Current statistics show that Australia is high on the priority list of Indian students and that Indian students form the second highest foreign students group in Australia. India is the number one source market for the Vocational Education & Training (VET) sector, and third largest source market for the higher education sector. Across all sectors, almost 11% of the 32,089 international students in South Australia in 2015 were from India.
StudyAdelaide sees greater potential for students from India to study in South Australia particularly Adelaide owing to its salubrious climate, its international appeal, its diverse cultural milieu and some of the finest educational institutions in the Australian continent.
