Australia’s international education services hit record high

AusBN – Australian Bureau of Statistics data has recorded a record export income of A$17.6 billion in 2014 from Australia’s international education services.

The report shows a 14% increase in the export income from calendar year 2013.

In 2009 the figures peaked to $16.7 billion but slowly decline throughout following years.

Minister for Education and Training Christopher Pyne blamed this decline on the mishandling of visas under the previous Labor government.

He said: "I'm delighted with these new figures because they show our booming international education sector is recovering and going from strength to strength under the Coalition."

Australian offshore providers of international services produced $600 million of the $17.6 billion figure.

Nearly 600,000 international fee-paying students contributed the other 17 billion.

Pyne added: "We will ensure the international education sector continues to be a major contributor to the strength and status of the Australian economy."
