The Federal Department of Education, Australia collects, analyzes, and reports international student mobility for Australia while also providing the data to international organizations. International students in Australia are required to hold a government-issued student visa. All such visa holders are registered in a national database, which contains demographic (e.g. age, gender, nationality) and educational information (e.g. institution, course undertaken, level of course) about each student. Data is extracted from this database and published online monthly.

For more data or other information on international students, please visit the department's Higher Education Statistics and International Student Data sites.
