But Australia’s reputation as a safe and sunny place to study is under threat after widespread disclosures of rape and sexual assault.
Australia: Rape on Campus follows a six-month investigation into sexual assault at the country’s universities, exploring how international students, far from home and family, are especially at risk.
It follows an Australian Human Rights Commission survey which found 1.6 percent of students experienced sexual assault in a university setting in 2015 or 2016, one in five were international students.
Journalist Aela Callan is behind the documentary and she spoke to ABC’s Fiona Ellis-Jones from Berlin.
Her documentary, Australia: Rape on Campus, will be screened on Al Jazeera.
