Our team’s diverse professional knowledge in social infrastructure produces substantial dividends.


The education industry is a substantial contributor to the Australian economy. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has confirmed international students generated $25.8 billion in 2016, $28 billion in 2017 and $ 31.9 billion in 2018. This demonstrates the consistent growth and importance of this industry to the Australian economy.

According to Deloitte Access Economics, the role of international education is enhancing the skills and productivity of the Australian workforce. It is estimated that Australia’s current number of international students will contribute over 130,000 skilled migrants to the workforce after they graduate. This increase in human capital would result in an increase to Australia’s GDP of approximately $8.7 billion.

Quick Facts on Australia’s Onshore International Education Sector:
  • Australia’s onshore international education sector is forecast to grow by a compounding annual rate of 3.8% (from 650,000 enrolments in 2018 to 940,000 by 2025).
  • The international education sector’s contribution to export earnings is expected to almost double to in excess of $33 billion by 2025.
  • In percentage terms, the fastest growing sectors in onshore international education, to 2025, are expected to be Higher Education and Vocational Education & Training (VET). By 2025, these two sectors are expected to account for 72% of all onshore international learner enrolments.
Growth Potential for Student Accommodation

Due to a lack of understanding surrounding the importance of the sector by financial institutions, property investment into Student Accommodation in Australia has led to off-shore companies taking possession of the Australian Student Accommodation market.

There is great potential for local investors to take advantage of this strong sector.
