Group of Eight (NJ1)
This Go8 Backgrounder compares the academic performance of three cohorts of students in Group of Eight (Go8) universities: Australian students, international students on campus in Australia (onshore) and international students overseas (offshore). Analysis of data supplied by Go8 universities shows that in 2007 students passed 91.8% of the courses they attempted. In Go8 universities: (1) international students succeed at the same high rate as domestic students; (2) women have slightly higher progress rates than men; and (3) international onshore students have slightly higher progress rates than international offshore students. Overall, international students on campus in Australia (91.6%) succeeded at the same level as Australian students (92.0%) and at a slightly higher rate than international students offshore (89.2%).
