More regional Australians are going to university when they finish school, and they are increasingly moving to the city to study. Fewer than a third of regional students commencing university in 2005 made the move to a city. By 2010, that number had risen to half, and by 2015 it was 57 per cent. Regional students with high ATARs move to the city at higher rates. High-achieving regional students tend to move to the city to study.
