Default Australia Education, Population, Migration & Students

Release of ESOS review issues paper and call for submissions. On 23

MELBOURNE'S population has reached 4 million and Australia's is
surging towards 22 million, according to new figures that have sparked
fresh debate about the impact of record migration. The Bureau of
Statistics says Australia's annual net migration soared in the first
three months of this year to 278,000 - up from just 100,000 five years

Migration waves The world's population growth is slowing, but

contributing $5.1 billion to the sector in 2007-08.

Disappearing icons: another Apostle crumbles. Victoria's Twelve
Apostles now number just seven after another of the rock formations
tumbled into the sea off Victoria's west coast. A tour operator
contacted Parks Victoria early yesterday and reported the small stack
had disappeared. http://www.theage.com.au/travel/trav...0926-g6w8.html

The Lucky Country? Why is Australia the most successful and most
peaceful multiculture in the developed world? How did an Anglo nation
responsible for Aboriginal land theft, anti-Chinese riots and the
White Australia Policy mutate into the country with arguably the least
interracial violence in the developed world?
