The project aims to investigate the housing circumstances of international students in the private rental sector in Sydney and Melbourne. It expects to generate new knowledge on their housing circumstances, the extent of
precariousness and the impacts on their wellbeing and academic experience. A mixed methods approach and a new measure of precarious housing will be used. Expected outcomes include enhanced understanding of the housing experiences of international students across the three key post-secondary education sectors and their housing risks in a super diverse environment. This should provide significant benefits as the high quality evidence produced should assist policymakers reduce precarious housing among international students.
