If WA universities are to compete to attract onshore fee-paying overseas students in the volume-demand courses (Business/IT/Engineering), they need to address their uncompetitive international fee levels (particularly for students from South Asia) and assist with part-time job opportunities and affordable housing. There is a huge opportunity to deliver part or all of WA degree courses in India through online and campus delivery modes.

Thanks for the interesting article. I think there are many career and educational opportunities in Australia, so the country must be opened for international students. Needless to say, young people from India have limited career and educational opportunities so it would be good if developed countries could help them. I think there are special programs for international students that help them to study in other countries and get employed there. Into my opinion, students may take an advantage of tools like and investigate their educational opportunities with its help.
