The 5th edition of the Student Visa Program Quarterly report was published on our website on January 27. Since the first edition was published in February 2011, the report has been well received by stakeholders in the international education sector.
The report provides general information about the student visa program and data on applications, grants, grant rates and processing times over a period of time. It also provides insight into emerging student visa trends. The December 2011 quarterly report shows that student visa applications and grants increased during the period July to December 2011, compared to the same period in the previous year.
A copy of the latest quarterly report, yearly student visa trends and comprehensive data on student visa grants by sector and country are available on the department's website at: www.immi.gov.au/media/statistics/study/
