A federal government plan to bring international college students back to australia has yet to start, and companies that rely on overseas students warn that even if the border is reopened at the beginning of the new semester next year, the education export market may take years to recover.

The Education minister Tiehan (Dan Tehan) told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) business program ," it was difficult to predict when international students would start coming from overseas.

Earlier this year, the Capital Territory and the Federal government planned to bring back to Canberra 350 students trapped overseas by the new crown pneumonia epidemic so that they could start studying on campus in the second semester of the year.

But the plan has been delayed by a second wave in Melbourne.

By the end of August, the Federal government, in collaboration with South Australia, had announced a plan to bring 300 international students abroad back to Adelaide this month. So far, however, no foreign student has arrived in Australia under the program. Education minister iron cold can not guarantee when the plan will start.

One speaker government South Australia said that "the final itinerary is in operation ", including which country the students came from.

A thorny problem is that states have imposed caps on international arrivals, which means thousands of Australian citizen are struggling to return home, not to mention foreign students.

South Australia limited the number of international passengers allowed to enter overseas to 500 a week, an increase of 360 yesterday.

The state governors are expected to ensure that international students do not squeeze Australia's naturalization limits from overseas, he said.

Figures from the Home Office show that 555,310 student visa holders were in Australia by 30 June. Overseas students have been suspended.

According to Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS),144000 students arrived in Australia for the second semester last year. Only 40 foreign students entered the country in July.

International travel has basically stopped, making it impossible for foreign students to return home to visit their relatives, and only a few students have left this year.

But the number of foreign students leaving the country far exceeds the number of foreign students entering the country.

Due to epidemic prevention restrictions, many courses in Australian universities are also arranged online, affecting the experience of learning on campus.

minister Tiehan said distance education in Australian universities is "no less than in other countries ," adding that many students who choose to register at Australian universities and start online will eventually be able to attend classes in Australia.

However, from January to June this year, Australian universities have been admitted, but still trapped in overseas students ,65,839 people delayed their studies, only 21% resumed their courses.

Seema Shah, an immigration agent who has been recruiting students for nearly 20 years, said she expects most of the visa holders who delay their studies will eventually come to Australia to complete their studies because they have paid their tuition fees and have completed the approval procedures for studying in Australia.

Not only universities have been hit by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the foreign student dormitory market has also been hit.

The education industry Think Tank a Mitchell Institute (Mitchell Institute) study found that international students account for more than 30% of accommodation in some inner cities and suburbs near campus.

About a third of these students spend on retail and catering, and another third on accommodation.

Some of this expenditure was eventually spent on specially constructed student dormitories, which included support for special housing development projects that had emerged in the years leading up to a significant increase in the number of international students before the outbreak.

There are nearly 113,000 specially constructed student dormitory beds in Australia, and 45,500 student dormitory beds are under construction, development or planning, according to data Urbis by the real estate consulting firm.
