International Mobility of Australian University Students: 2005
Olsen, Alan
Journal of Studies in International Education, v12 n4 p364-374 2008
Australia as a destination for international students is well researched. However, less is known about the numbers of Australian students who undertake international study experiences during their courses, the characteristics of those students, their types of experiences, their fields of education, and their destinations. This study finds that nearly 5% of undergraduates in Australian universities undertake an international study experience by the time they complete their degrees. Most students go overseas on exchanges or other semester- or year-long programs, more than on short-term programs or work placements. Of international study experiences in 2005, 59% were undertaken by women. Arts and business were the most common fields of education, and Europe and the Americas were the most popular destinations.
