A gap exists in the research literature on why international students choose to study at offshore, higher education, Australian campuses in Singapore. The paper presents findings from a focus group interview, which shows that higher education institutions in Singapore have become a viable alternative to the traditional study destinations of the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia for many students in Asia. Factors influencing students' choice of study destination and choice of higher education institution are discussed, and based on these observations and Australia's connection to Asia, suggestions are offered to strengthen this growing area.
