Yes, it’s true. Check out the infographic below, courtesy of the Australian Department of Education and Training. As of 11-18, Viet Nam ranked 6th among sending countries with 24,094 students studying at all levels in Australia.
Incredibly, there were more Vietnamese studying in South Korea than Australia last year. As in Japan, Viet Nam ranked 2nd with 27,061. Speaking of the former, I’ll talk about Vietnamese enrollments in that country, which are off the charts, in another post.
Note: I wish the US government had the same data quality and quantity as Australia’s.
