Study in Australia
For international students, studying in Australia can be a true adventure. This incredible country offers amazing wildlife and natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef and cosmopolitan cities like Sydney and Melbourne. International students benefit from:
- The possibility of working while studying
- Affordable living
- Technological accessibility
- Qualification recognition worldwide
- Job opportunities across multiple disciplines
Australia has grown to become the third largest destination for international students in the world. Australian degrees enjoy global recognition and are equivalent to those earned in Europe, USA and across the world, as an added bonus the Australian education system is federally regulated meaning laws, rules and requirements do not change state by state such as in the US.
Australia offers international students an education that is unique in its approach, the Australian education system encourages students to be innovative and creative but to also think critically and independently about problems or case studies.
Having a more focused degree system means that international students who already know what they would like to study can start studying their major in the first year in a focused curriculum rather than a broad study system such as those often offered in universities in Canada and the US.
Due to the more focused curriculum offered in Australian institutions, bachelors’ degrees tend to be a year shorter than those in other countries, this can be very helpful for students in way of money savings but also allows you to graduate with equivalent credentials to the longer degrees in other countries.
The quality of Australia’s education can be seen with many of its universities ranking very highly on the worldwide tables. For example The Group of Eight (Australia’s version of the Ivy League) has 7 of its members in the top 100 rankings of universities worldwide, showing the strength of Australia’s education system on a global level.
If you are looking for a country that can offer you a relatively low cost of living and a degree with a focused curriculum that will give you a qualification of a global standard, Australia could be the study location for you.
