To support future decisions regarding learning abroad strategies, we are continuing analysis of student preferences toward Learning Abroad. 


Overall, we aim to discover if the post-COVID19 environment will reduce the demand of students enrolled at Australian universities to undertake Learning Abroad experiences in 2022 and 2023 and how students believe this decision may or may not impact their study experience and future employability goals.


The survey
One of the most successful stories in the Australian international education sector was the impressive level of university student participation and institutional engagement in Learning Abroad. In 2019, more than 59,000 university students travelled abroad to participate in a study experience to enhance their Australian degree.

To better understand the impact of COVID-19 and provide relevant intelligence to the higher education sector, a time series study will continue this year with the support of IEAA and 25 Australian universities. During July, we are asking university students about their views and plans regarding future opportunities to undertake a learning experience abroad as part of their degree.

As we know, university students have been dramatically impacted since 2020 and we hope this study will provide key insights to enrich their university experience. 


The results

Thank you again to IEAA and all participating universities for your support. The key findings of the analysis will be shared with the university sector in August.
