Due to the “over-reliance” of the higher education industry on the Chinese study abroad market, seven Australian universities face the risk of falling out of the top 7 universities in the world.
According to reports, Chinese students create 70 billion Australian dollars in economic benefits to the Australian higher education industry every year.
In response, Australian Catholic University principal Greg Craven said that the Australian higher education industry is "extremely dependent" on Chinese students.
The “Daily Mail” reported that the Australian higher education industry is in a very bad situation in the context of the Chinese Ministry of Education’s warning of studying in Australia and the tension between Australia and China.
Craven said: "Now we are unable to determine when international students will return to Australia. The Chinese market that major universities rely on is not only at risk of epidemics, but also political risks."
Craven said that most Australian universities will be forced to cut spending and will face the risk of falling out of the top XNUMX universities in the world.
In the 2021 QS World University Rankings, 7 Australian universities entered the top XNUMX, ranked in order: Australian National University,University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, UNSW, University of Queensland, Monash University and University of Western Australia.
The only university in the Australian Eight Schools Alliance that did not enter the top 106 is the University of Adelaide, which ranks XNUMX.
"Daily Mail" reported that the Australia-China trade friction has exacerbated the downturn in the study abroad market.According to Craven's prediction, the Australian Eight Schools Alliance will lower the admission criteria to attract more local students.
Statistics show that Indian students account for 15% of the total number of international students in Australia.
Affected by the travel ban, they cannot enter Australia.At present, many international students are considering abandoning Australia and studying in Canada.
A study by the Mitchell Institute of the University of Victoria found that if Australia’s “closure order” continues, the Australian economy will lose up to 2021 billion Australian dollars in mid-100, and the number of Australian students will be halved from 60 to 30.
