The international education sector and students who have chosen to study in Australia continue to experience unprecedented challenges in light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

Austrade is working with our state and territory and federal partners to provide up-to-date information and advice to minimise disruption to the sector and our international students, both in Australia and abroad.

The Study in Australia website is the central point for information relevant to international students, sourced from all relevant Australian Government departments – Health, Home Affairs, Education and Foreign Affairs, and Trade and Investment.
