The reasons to study in Australia
Australia offers an educational experience that makes a real difference. It provides a unique kind of education and a learning style that encourages one to be innovative, creative and think independently. You’ll learn to work as part of a team, to communicate effectively with others and to develop the practical skills and intellectual abilities you need for global success.
Institutions in Australia offer a wide variety of courses and degrees, making it easy to find a course right for you. Australian qualifications are recognised by employers and leading educational institutions around the world.
Australia is a safe, multicultural, friendly and harmonious society. Australians value the wealth of cultural diversity and social sophistication that international students bring to the campuses and communities.
Australia’s national quality assurance system is unique both in its structure and its rigour. International students, and even their parents, enjoy an unparalleled level of service and financial protection. The country is committed to providing quality education to students — be it national or international.
English Speaking Country
English is the third native language in the world, but above all, it is the most taught and known language in the world. English is the lingua franca of business. In Australia you have the opportunity to excel in this area by speaking the language on a day-to-day basis; living among and conversing with native speakers and taking advantage of chances to engage in real life and practical situations in an English-speaking environment
More employment prospects
One of the great advantages of gaining an Australian qualification is the opportunities it will provide you when it comes to finding employment. No matter where you want to start your career, your qualification will be recognised as a mark of a quality education.
If you know exactly what you want to study, then an Australian degree is the right choice for you. Typically, students pick their major in their first year, and begin studying their chosen topics in a focused curriculum as opposed to the broad-based curriculum of most overseas universities.
Possibility of more scholarships
Australia has many scholarship programs, student bursaries, and other support programs to help transition international students into Australia. It currently has the 3rd largest international student enrollment, after the USA and the UK.
More research opportunities
Australia offers research opportunities to eligible professionals willing to enhance their career. The biggest advantage is that Australia offers country-based research that is spread all over the continent. Selection for these highly-regarded research opportunities are based on merit and is highly competitive, and a proven track record of academic excellence is a pre-requisite.
Skilled Migration Programme
The Australian Government Skilled Migration Programme targets young people who have skills, an education and outstanding abilities that will contribute to the Australian economy. International students with Australian qualifications account for about half the people assessed under the Skilled Migrant Programme.
Earn an income while studying
One of the advantages of being an international student in Australia is that you can receive permission to work while you study. Under the proposed arrangement, the student work visa conditions would be measured as 40 hours’ work per fortnight during any fortnight in the course session. A fortnight means a period of 14 days commencing on a Monday.
In comparison to countries such as the United States and the UK, the costs of tuition and education in Australia are significantly less. The benefit is not only that international students are required to pay less; they also receive an education that is one of the world’s finest.
