Australia remains one of the most popular destinations for international students. Of the top ten sending places of origin in 2011, nine were Asian, with China, India and Malaysia making up over 54 percent of the entire international student population. Outward bound Australian students continue to study primarily in European countries and New Zealand, though the United States remains the most popular destination.
