February 25, 2011

According to a survey of more than 36,000 international university students in Australia, 86% of respondents were satisfied with their educational and living experience in the country. More than three-quarters of students said they would recommend their Australian university to future applicants. The survey also confirms there is still room for ongoing improvement, says the CEO of Universities Australia, which conducted the survey. For example, he notes, the survey "identifies mismatches between students' expectations of living in Australia and their actual experiences."
