Universities have been under pressure to diversify their funding base and one of their responses has been the more vigorous recruitment of fee-paying overseas students. Although they now comprise eight per cent of all university enrolments, there have been few changes in the distribution of overseas students by country of origin or by university between 1989 and 1996. Much of the overseas student expansion has gone into the business field, the choice of about 48 per cent of overseas students. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
