Australian universities in 2014
Australia has again become a landmark destination for Indians wanting to pursue higher education here. In 2014, the state of Victoria alone saw a 20% increase in number of students getting admitted here as compared to 2013. There was a period of lull in the enrolment process due to racial attacks in the country and counterfeit colleges getting closed down. After this, there has been a steady rise of 50,000 students in September, 2014. Out of this, half are admitted in Victoria.

According to the Director of the Victorian Government Business Office in Bangalore, Annie Santhana, student mobility from India to Australia is envisaged to increase by 25-30% on a yearly basis. Most of the Indian students come from the metropolitan cities while there are also many from tier 2 and tier 3 cities like Rajkot, Nagpur, Trichy, Chandigarh, Coimbatore, Madurai, and many more. Apart from the mainstream courses like engineering, sciences, IT and business, vocational study programs are also emerging fast. The vocational training courses include hospitality, commercial cookery and hairdressing courses. These have become much sought after programs.

Santhana said that the Government was taking strict steps with the educational agencies to curb misinformation from spreading among students. Students were provided with important information by offering them total visibility on websites and social media. Access to services like 24*7 student care center in Melbourne which helps the overseas students with financial aid, medical information, domestic issues and study help proves to be very beneficial.

The Australian universities popular among Indian students are Deakin and La Trobe universities. Monash University and University of Melbourne are two of the world-ranking universities in Australia.
