Indian students prefer Australia

A survey by TNS puts three Australian universities at the top of the list for Indian students looking to study overseas. This is strongly at odds with the media narrative here and on the sub-continent, which suggests that Australia is regarded as unsafe and racist.

In fact Australia dominated the rankings with 6 out of the top 10. Oxford University came in at fourth position, followed directly by the University of Queensland. Monash and UNSW were ninth and tenth.

Interestingly Australia was only the third most popular country, but the practicalities of choosing somewhere to study meant that when reputation, cost, safety and proximity were taken into account, our universities out-performed. The research is available for download by clicking here.
