Students dreaming of studying in Australia have just hit gold. On 1 August, 2012 the Australian education fair was held in New Delhi showcasing the fleeting range of universities that one could apply to and pursue their higher studies. Pre-arranged by the Association of Australian Education Representatives in India along with Australian international education and the Australian Trade Commission, the fair highlighted the scope of generating accomplished students by bringing in joint educational and vocational courses.

According to the Australian High Commissioner of the Australian Trade Commission, a whopping 12.5 billion has been invested in the sector of Australian university to help India achieve its target of training 500 million students and professionals. However, the fear of fierce Australian violence had caught the nation in a terrorized state and the Australian government is now taking vigilant steps to ensure the safety of Indian and other foreign students. International students in Australia receive regular instructions on ways and places of safety. The Australian police department is being extra cautious on the safety of the students, hence striving to make Australia a safer and better place for students to pursue their higher education dreams.

The regional manager of University of Technology, Sydney said that they were offering various study programs for low scoring students. If a student scored below 53%, he/she could apply for a diploma, while a student scoring less than 50% could enroll in a foundation course to enhance thier study experience. The regional manager of Griffith International University stated that they anticipated intakes for the session that would commence in February. The institution offers research based courses in various disciplines and each course has a separate cut off. On the whole, the student must have a good IELTS score and obtain 80% in their undergraduate exams if applying for a PG course while the cut off is 70% for students wishing to enroll in graduate programs.

Story on the other side

Despite the slump in Indian students enrollment, australia's overseas student traffic has remained steady. Arounf 44% of Ballarat's population is made up of overseas students. Other major universities like the University of New South Wales has a large number of foreign students enrolled amounting to 13,600 students. Victoria university and NSW have 62000 and 65000 overseas university students on the whole. The figures indicate clearly that Indian applications drop has not blown Australian overseas education away and the country is still thriving on its educational exports.
