Why Study in Australia

Australia promotes innovation, creativity and independent thinking throughout its universities. International students who study and live in Australia soon find that their education is challenging, fun, and rewarding. As an international student in Australia, you can expect to live, grow and learn in a young, friendly country full of opportunities. For those international students who successfully complete their degree, they will soon find that they are competitive in today’s international job market.

Living in Australia

Australia is an extremely culturally diverse country. It is varied in its religion, language, history, and art. International students who study in Australia will find themselves studying in a fascinating and diverse environment. Australia is an extremely large country, making transportation very important. The public transportation system is very efficient, and international students should always be able to get to where they need to go, whether by bus, train, bike, or plane.

One of the first things international students will have to determine when preparing to study in Australia is where to live. The majority of Australian students live off-campus, through home stay programs, hostels, or rental properties. However, some Australian universities provide their students with housing options, which allow international students to socialize with Australian students during their studies.

Working in Australia

One of the benefits of being an international student in Australia is that you have permission to work part-time while completing your degree. Australia, unlike other countries, gives those with a student visa automatic permission to work. International students must find a job on their own, but once hired, they will gain hands-on experience in a number of fields including retail, administration, and hospitality. Not only is this a unique opportunity for students to gain real work-experience in Australia, but it also helps students cover their living and college expenses as well as improves their business English fluency.
