© 2018 selection and editorial matter, Mabel Ann Brown; individual chapters, the contributors. With surging numbers of migrants and students on short-term visas, Garnaut (2015) asserts that Australia faces ‘a range and scale of policy changes not seen since World War II’. This chapter sets out to explore those young people who migrate into the country as international students and the effects that this has for both them and domestic students. The chapter will also consider population drifts within Australia from country towns to cities, and from the inland to the coastal regions, examining the reasons for the prominent out-migration of young people from remote areas of the country to the cities (Alston, 2004).
