Heartbroken Chinese students say they cannot wait until late 2021 to return to Australia

Published on : October 29, 2020

A number of Chinese students say they've lost hope in returning to Australia to resume their studies after the federal budget projected the 'gradual' return of international students by late 2021.

Australia’s international border has been closed since March as a measure to stop the spread of coronavirus, which left thousands of international students unable to return to their studies.

Hope remained among students that they would somehow find a way back in late 2020, but October’s federal budget has led many to turn their backs on Australia, as it was revealed that a "gradual return of international students and permanent migrants is assumed through the latter part of 2021".

SBS Mandarin spoke to a handful of students who say they simply cannot wait until late 2021 to return.
