    Changes to the monthly data

    AEI has made some changes to AEI international student enrolment data to enhance the usefulness of the data to the sector.

    In response to industry feedback, the more detailed Field of Education was introduced in 2008. The Broad Field of Study was kept in the data set for 2008 for legacy reporting purposes. In 2009 the Broad Field of Study has been removed.
