More than 24,000 Vietnamese students were enrolled at Australian educational facilities last year, making the country the fourth-largest source of students in the country behind China, India, and Nepal.

The figure was 2,000 less than in 2019, reported Vietnam News Agency (VNA).

First Secretary in charge of education at the Vietnamese Embassy in Australia, Dang Thuy Chi said a large number of Vietnamese students in the country returned home last year but still took classes online.

According to figures from Australia’s Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Covid-19-related border closures resulted in the number of foreign students in the country standing at 686,104 in 2020, an annual decline of 9 per cent.

The figure does not include those taking online courses offered by Australian educational establishments from outside of the country.

Australia has largely brought the pandemic under control and begun a vaccination campaign.

The Australian government, however, is yet to make a decision on opening its border to international students, as it is prioritising the arrival of tens of thousands of Australians from overseas.
