Why you should study in Australia?
Australia is a modern country with a high standard of living. It is the world’s third most popular education destination with the world’s best facilities and educators.
Australian qualifications are internationally recognised and most of the courses are regulated by the Australian Qualification Framework, which is a national system endorsed by the Australian Government. All schools accepting international students must be government-registered and must meet special requirements set out by the Government to ensure high educational standards.
Students who have prior learning in a similar discipline may also seek exemptions into a course that they are applying into, enabling them to complete their degree much earlier. For example, a student with a 3-year diploma of business from a local polytechnic may be offered up to 1.5 years off their bachelor degree in business. This will depend on the student’s results and the articulation arrangements that the different institutions have in place.
Another consideration is the cost involved in overseas studies. Tuition fees differ greatly between different institutions, courses and level of study and range from AUD10,000 to AUD45,000 a year. Cost of living also varies depending on your choice of location and lifestyle, and ranges from AUD20,000 to AUD25,000 a year
Student visa holders can also work up to 40 hours per fortnight to help defray some living expenses. Students who have studied in Australia may also be eligible to apply for post study work visa that allows that them further stay in Australia. While you’re not permitted to carry out paid work in Australia on a Student Visa, you can apply for a working visa once you’ve finished your study. To qualify for this visa, it is mandatory for a student to complete a minimum of two years education in the Bachelor or Masters degree level. University qualified employees are in high demand in Australia, across a wide range of disciplines including Accountancy, Engineering and Professional Services, so there are great opportunities to gain work when you graduate.
With a great education system in place, you can live, study and experience another culture with plenty of attractions and transport infrastructure at your fingertips. Australia is a wonderful place to study and explore. Come and see for yourself!
