This article explores the motives of students from India who have enrolled in Australian universities as overseas students. It shows that their main objective is to obtain a permanent residence visa in Australia and that they tailor their choice of course and university with this end in mind. As a consequence most have chosen to study at the relatively low cost metropolitan campuses of Australia’s regional universities. The article also explores the difficulties Indian students are encountering in obtaining a permanent residence visa. Pagination on item is incorrect Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
