Report on Crimes against International Students in Australia

21 October 2011

A report into the incidence of assault and robbery crimes against overseas students in Australia between 2005- 2009 was released on August 11th, 2011 by the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC). This is the first major study of its kind in Australia.

Key findings show:

  • Rates of assault for Indian students were lower than or on par with rates for the general Australian population.
  • Rates of robbery against Indian students were higher than average for Australians in larger states for most years.
  • The proportion of robberies against Indian students occurring at commercial locations was approximately double that recorded for students from other countries.
  • Over half of robberies against Indian students on commercial premises occurred at service stations.

The full report can be accessed on the Australian Institute of Criminology website.
