The Economic Impact of International Students – New Paper Released Today

Today a new paper released today entitled Exports of Educational Services Attributable to the Overseas Industry in Australia by Bob Birrell, Co-Director of the Centre for Population and Urban Research at Monash University, calls into question the methodology used to calculate the economic impact of international students. I won’t summarize in this post as Geoff Maslen at University World News, exclusive publisher of this report, wrote a great article about this. You can read the University World News article which links to Birrell’s paper here.
