Presently, the UK and the US are closing their doors for Indian students. They are using an anti-immigrant language and are implementing strict rules, which make the stay difficult after their studies are completed. Hence Indian students are opting to seek admission to Australian universities and colleges.

Indian students are studying in large numbers in Australia, and the trend has increased to a record high, as per the data revealed by the Australian High Commission, located in New Delhi. 

Australian universities like James Cook, Bond, Deakin, Queensland, New South Wales, and Canberra had a plentiful 2017, with increased Indian applicants. Indian students had previously focussed on the states of Victoria, and NSW but now prefer destinations like Melbourne and Queensland also. 

In November 2017, there were 68,000 Indian students pursuing their studies in Australia, which was an increase of 14.65% over the same period in January-November 2016. In 2016, Australia received 60,013 students from India, which saw an increase of 12% compared to the previous year. The boost in numbers is also attributed to the warm welcome received by them in Australia.

The approach of Australia towards education is dynamic. The US places visa restrictions and is not sure if it wants enhanced immigration. Australia is sure, that it is seeking more people, who can make a rich contribution to the economy.

The US witnessed less number of Indians pursuing studies. Applications for International graduates and enrolment for fresh graduates, of Indian origin, in US institutions, decreased by 15% and 13%, in the year-end of 2017.

 The UK saw an increase of 27%, to 14,081, in the long-term category of study visas, given to Indian students, as on November 30, 2017. It is very low when compared to 60,000 of September 2010. 

Canada also saw an interest from students of India. 52,870 Indian students reached Canada in 2016, and the number increased to 54,425 in October 2017.

Jane den Hollander, Vice Chancellor Deakin University said that more Indians seek admission in its undergraduate programs.  The University of New South Wales, in the last three years, saw a continuation of double-digit growth among Indian students. Deakin University witnessed a 50% increase in Indian students in the present year compared to 2016.  The favored courses there were, Information Technology, Engineering, Accounting, Management, International Finance, Public Health, Commerce, and Information Systems. Indian students increased their presence in Bond University, by 20% in 2017. 

Indian students now consider Australia as a favorite study destination.

More inquiries are being made in Australia, owing to the immigration policies pursued by the UK and the US. India is the second country of origin for more global students behind China.

The Department of Home Affairs in Australia stated that 68,227 Indian students received a visa for studies in the country, which was an increase of 14.6% in Financial Year 2017. Applications in the University of Canberra doubled in 2017 compared to 2016.

A study by Pearson, reveals that Australia as now the new preferred destination. Applicants from Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Punjab chose to study in Australia. This is a sign of the depth of Australia's multifold engagement with India.

Indian students are interested in programs that reflect the changed reality of India. There is an emphasis on studying social development, architecture and health. 

The University of Queensland is also popular, and the number of Indian applications, pursuing postgraduate courses, is increasing in 2018.
