The International Students Keep Flooding In, By James Reed

 The claim by Labor that there will be a figure of 395,000 net overseas migration, is of course another deception. Overseas student numbers enrolled at Australian universities increased, not decreased, being 17 percent higher at present than in March 2023. Considering Chinese students alone, 100,000 new students enrolled at the Group of Eight universities, such as Syndey University, and the University of Melbourne.

As argued at Macrobusiness.com.au, the explosion of overseas students will push the net overseas migration figure to at least 500,000, if not more. Most of these students are here to become permanent residents, and to have jobs. We are replacing our own professional class. The significance of this is something freedom movement types need to seriously contemplate, as the Australia that we know, is rapidly being replaced, as are our kind.

"Labor's federal budget projection of 395,000 net overseas migration (NOM) this financial year is looking even shakier following new figures showing that the number of international students enrolled at Australia's universities was 17% higher than in 2023 as of March.

The figures also show that a record 160,000 international students have enrolled at the nation's top eight universities in 2024. This is 32% higher than pre-pandemic levels.

Some 100,000 new students from China have enrolled at Australian universities in 2024, predominantly the so-called Group of Eight.

Meanwhile, overseas enrolments at non-Go8 institutions are now just 8% higher than prior to the onset of the pandemic.

According to data from 19 universities in metropolitan and regional locations, only two—the University of Sydney and Federation University Australia—saw their percentage of international students fall during the past year.

Fifteen had a larger proportion of international students in the first semester of this year compared to semester one last year.

The data aligns with the Department of Home Affairs' temporary migrant data, which shows that there were a record 671,4000 student visas on issue in March, up nearly 90,000 from the year before.

Let's be honest: the federal government's 395,000 NOM projection for 2023-24 is wildly understated given that net permanent and long-term arrivals were tracking at record levels in the March quarter:

Therefore, it seems likely that Australia's NOM will end up clocking in closer to 500,000 in 2023-24.

That said, annual student visa arrivals have topped out near 800,000, whereas departures are catching up. …

This pace of immigration would ensure that Australia's population continues to grow at a greater rate than homes and infrastructure can be constructed."
