Australian Universities Face A Major Slump

Due to the emergence of the Covid-19 crisis, many Australian universities have encountered massive financial losses. This has happened simply due to the abrupt declaration of the travel ban restrictions and campus shutdowns. Mr. Morrison is quite hopeful that the stated 3 stage plan will surely curb such slumps somewhat. Conversely, he also opines that the plan can be executed successfully only if strict quarantine restrictions are complied with. Given below are some crucial facts which finally resulted in the economic downfall of the various Australian universities out there.

  • At least 10% of international students are unable to return to Australia due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions.
  • This brought a striking slump in the revenue of $40 billion earned by the Australian universities from international students.
  • Most of the Australian universities were compelled to opt for a sudden shutdown indefinitely due to Covid-19. This led them to encounter a major downfall in their economic fabric as well.

In this context, the National Covid-19 Coordination Commission Chairman Nev Power emphasized the priority to revamp the Australian academia swiftly. Mr. Power has also propounded the concept of university-sponsored charter flights for international students.
This will help the international students to come back to the country at their ease.
