    The number of Indian students studying in Australia is projected to fall by about 20% in 2010.
    Australia's Tourism Forecasting Committee (TFC) has said the students are choosing to stay away due to a series of attacks in mid-2009.
    Australian police blamed the attacks on opportunistic criminals, but some Indian students see them as racist.
    The drop in the number of Indian students is expected to cost Australia almost $70m (£44m).
    More than 70,000 Indians studied in Australia in 2009. Australia's higher education industry is its third biggest export earner after coal and iron ore.
