NCVER Collection


Presented here are data on the outcomes of international students who completed their vocational education and training (VET) qualification in Australia in 2019. These students were surveyed as an additional component to the 2020 National Student Outcomes Survey. The international component comprised international onshore students undertaking VET qualifications delivered by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).

Information is presented on international onshore VET qualification completers’ reasons for training and their employment outcomes, barriers to finding employment, their satisfaction with training and further study outcomes. Questions were also asked about the impact of COVID-19 on employment outcomes.
