Quite interesting to see that Australia is the MOST costly destination for International students but still continues to be favourite destination for students across the globe. There could be several reasons contributing!
The best reasons I can account for are corresponding higher hourly pay rate, increasing job opportunities for international students, reputed colleges, favourable climate and fairly good chance for permanent residency. Australia stands tall and costly in the list with an average annual expense for international students at 38,516 AUD, followed by US, UK and canada.
Below is a comparison chart comparing top countries which students might consider before packing their bags to Australia.
