Improvement in Education Standards
During the pandemic, Australia faced a historic low in student satisfaction surveys due to closed borders and unsatisfactory online learning experiences. The conditions snatched the opportunity of experiencing student life abroad from international students.
It also limited access to various educational resources as well as talent development and employment programs. The quality of teaching also dissatisfied students to an extent in those years. The country and students suffered from the limitations of the closed borders.
Besides that, the government made provisions and this year, Australia has set a new benchmark for itself in the same field. Teaching quality, skill development and learner engagement were never rated this high by international students as this year.
