Why study in Australia?

Australia has much to offer international students – here are some of the main reasons more and more undergraduates are choosing to study down under.

1. International recognition

A degree from an Australian university will be recognised all around the world if you choose to study here.

The government regulates the higher education system in order to maintain excellent education standards.

2. A rising destination

Australia is becoming an increasingly popular destination for international students, and has the third largest international student enrolment behind the USA and the UK.

3. Costs

You will find tuition fees and the cost of living in Australia much lower than in the UK and USA.

This makes it more affordable for undergraduates to attend a university in Australia and sill have a very good standard of living.

4. Range of courses

There are a wide variety of undergraduate courses offered at Australian universities, so you’re bound to find something suited to you.

5. Research and technology

Australia is in the top 10 countries for government spending on research and development (0.71% of GDP), and publishes around 250,000 scientific papers in a decade.

This puts it at the forefront of new technology and innovations.

6. Work

The Australian Immigration system allows students visiting the country on a student visa the opportunity to work up to 20 hours per week during term time, and during holidays students can work full time.

This makes it much more affordable for students who can attend university and still fund their education with a job.
