Pathways of international students while studying on a student visa

(Warning: Up to 12MB data download for each set of pathways)

Pathways of international students while on a student visa.  Various pathways can be downloaded, including pathways post ELICOS, post Schools, prior to VET and prior to Higher Education.

There is too much pathways data to display all at once so the data has been broken down by pathway type and year.  There will be a slight delay loading each set of pathways data when a new set is selected.  The pathways data is updated monthly with each release of the international student data. 

Pathways can be examined by nationality.


Student Location

(Warning: 20MB data download)

A map showing the distribution of international student enrolments across Australia. Enrolments data can be disaggregated by nationality and education sector.
