Universities Australia chief executive Catriona Jackson says the students are the first from overseas since November last year when some students had returned.
“Universities have worked closely with government and health authorities for more than 18 months on plans to safely welcome back our international friends,” she said on Sunday.
“Around 130,000 international students remain outside Australia, and they are all very eager to re-join their classmates.”
Other 500 students are expected to arrive on 7 December as part of an NSW government initiative.
