The economic implications of fewer international higher education students in
26 September 2010.This report argues that economic output associated with Australia's
third largest export industry will shrink by as much as $600 million in 2011 and by $1.2
billion to 2012, unless urgent action is taken on pressing policy concerns.
The report, commissioned by the John Curtin Institute of Public Policy (JCIPP) at Curtin
University shows that:
Higher education is the most significant part of the sector. With 32% of the international
student market it generates 57% of the export revenue.
International on-shore education is now a billion dollar industry in its own right in New
South Wales and Victoria, generating value-added of around $3 billion in each state. It
has an overall economic impact of $1.4 billion in Queensland.
On average each International student in higher education generates $50,874 for
Australia, 36% of this being spent on fees with the remainder mainly on
accommodation, food, restaurants and retail.
For every two International students enrolled in an Australian university one extra job is
This value add from International university students in 2009 saw an additional 102,387
jobs created, of which 83,050 were created outside the education sector.

Tuition fees in the UK
Full-time courses
If you’re a new student (or a continuing student who started your course in or after
September 2006) the maximum tuition fees you’ll be charged are £3,290 for the
2010/11 academic year. For 2009/10, the maximum is £3,225.
Exactly what you’re charged depends on the university or college you attend, your
course, and where in the UK you study. You can get a Tuition Fee Loan to cover the
full cost of your tuition fees. This is paid directly to your university or college. The
amount you get does not depend on household income.
If you're a new student starting a full-time course in 2010/11, you can use the Student
Finance Calculator to work out a budget.
Remember that if you take out the student loans available to full-time students, you
don’t have to start paying them back until you’ve left your course and are earning over
Student loans accrue interest from the date they are paid out, up until they are repaid
in full.
Tuition fees in France
The fees are determined by the government, and not by the institution itself. A
basic fee for an undergraduate course in 2010/2010 is Euro174 per year; for a
Master’s course it is Euro237 per year; for a Ph.D it is Euro359 per year. In
addition, students pay social security charges of Euro200 per year.
Fees at the Grandes Ecoles vary but are generally high. Fees for a classic business
school costs between Euro5,000 and Euro10,000 per year, whilst an engineering
school can cost up to Euro15,000.
Universities are trying to overcome the government restrictions by charging
higher fees for new courses and extra-curriculum activities.
Examples of fees
at private universities – US$30,260
In public universities – US$7,170

-An overview of ASEM countries with student loan and grant
system in place;
-Similarities & differences of various approaches;
-Need for studies on future demand for higher education and
related trends in higher education finance;
-Possible other forms of cost-recovery (graduate tax?),
to what extent it is possible to resolve problems associated
with student loans?
