Study in Australia
Australia is home to some of the top student-friendly cities in the world. It has developed a strong global reputation as a popular and rewarding study destination due to its excellent education system, high standard of living, friendly community, laid-back lifestyle and vibrant city life.
The country’s stunning natural beauty and unique flora and wildlife are world-renowned. There are over 11,000 beaches dotting the coastline and you’ll be able to explore incredibly diverse landscapes and iconic landmarks including the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Harbour and Uluru.
Cultural diversity is another distinguishing aspect of life in Australia, making you feel welcome and allowing you to step outside your comfort zone to expand your thinking with new ideas and perspectives.
Graduates from Australian schools are highly sought after due to the impressive international reputation of the Australian education system.
The Australian Qualifications Framework (aqf.edu.au) allows countries around the world to recognise your qualification and issue the comparable qualifications for local use. The education system in Australia is closely regulated by the government through national agencies such as the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (teqsa.gov.au), to ensure you are receiving the highest quality learning experience.
International students are also guaranteed high standards of education and care through Australian law in the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act.
