Number Of International Students In Australia Rises, But Student Accommodation Does Not

Figures from the Department of Education have shown that there has been a 12% rise in the enrolment of international students just this year, with international students making up about a quarter of students enrolled in some universities. Despite the rise, many international students are struggling to find affordable and reliable accommodation, with six international students at Charles Sturt University discovered to have been staying at the university’s library overnight just last month due to having no other accommodation. The President of the National Union of Students, Mark Pace joined us to talk about this.
