International education is one of South Australia’s key exports injecting nearly $1.2 billion into our economy in 2015 and creating thousands of local jobs. Students from around the world go back to their parent nations as friends of Australia. Families and friends visit students and help stimulate the local economy. Linkages form between South Australians and international students. For these reasons, growing the numbers of international students studying in South Australia is a priority for the South Australian Government, part of its commitment to the “Knowledge State”.
