Why Study in Australia

Deciding to study abroad is a massive decision to make. Aside from leaving behind the life you’re accustomed to, you may also be wondering what and where you will choose to live and study. When people think of Australia, they think of the sun, sea, and surf. Or koala, kangaroos and Crocodile Dundee (for all the Paul Hogan fans), and sometimes, maybe study.  If you thought the land down under was simply just a gap-year adventure spot, let us tell you the multitude of reasons why Australia is the perfect destination for studying abroad.

World-class education

Boasting over 1,100 institutions across the country and over 22,000 courses to choose from, those travelling to the land down under are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the right university for them, with 7 ranking in the renowned QS World University Rankings for 2020.

Cultural diversity

Australia is a diverse melting pot of cultures, with a large population of international students offering you the chance to step out of your comfort zone and experience something new in this wonderful and diverse land. Some of the benefits of living in such a multicultural country is the opportunity to experience global culinary offerings, diverse cultural celebration and maybe even learn a new language, or two, if you’re up to it. 

Cost of living

Proudly holding one of the highest standards of living in the world, you’d expect the Aussie experience to come with a hefty price tag. However both living and tuition costs in Australia are considerably lower than they are in the UK and the USA. Many international students opt to work part time to offset their living and entertainment expenses. 

The great outdoors

Australia is home to some of the most beautiful natural scenery and wonders in the world. From the sun-kissed sandy beaches to the impressive landmarks and stunning burnt orange deserts, you’ll be spoilt for choice on where to spend your long student breaks. Don’t forget to meet a koala or two at Australia Zoo on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. 

Great work opportunities

Student visa holders in Australia are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week (40 hours a fortnight) while they are studying and unrestricted hours while on study breaks. And if you love the land down under during your time as a student, you can apply for a Temporary graduate visa, that enables eligible international students to stay in Australia and continue to work after they have graduated.
