Hamburger may have been derived from meat-based food in the city of Hamburg, but to date, no city or individual can claim to have created the world’s most known meat sandwich.

What seems to be backed up by facts is that the term “burger” is associated with many different types of sandwiches and ground meat of different varieties - buffalo, venison, kangaroo, turkey, elk, lamb, fish or salmon, and with the emergence of a more “healthy” lifestyle, the veggie burger.

Written history has the Chicago Daily Tribune’s article on July 5, 1896 where an American, Louis Lassen, a Danish immigrant and owner of Louis Lunch in New Haven Connecticut offered small ground meat patties between two slices of bread, cooked while customers wait. This version is not without its detractors (from the Library of Congress from the account of Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro).

What is indisputable and without question is the fact that Australia is the 3rd most popular destination for international students not just hungry for food, but mainly by food for the mind: international education offered by Australia’s education system.

Despite a population of only 23 million – compared to more than 325 million in the United States – Australia is the 3rd most popular international student destination in the world. (www.oecd.org)

In 2009, almost 3.7 million tertiary students were enrolled outside their country of citizenship. In descending order, Australia, the United Kingdom, Austria, Switzerland and New Zealand have the highest percentages of international students among their tertiary enrolments.
