Study In Australia

Not “just” a Paradise…

When you think of Australia, you might see wide open spaces, wild kangaroos and koalas, clean air and blue oceans, sunrise surfing, etc. Well, yes, a Paradise!

But Australia has much more to offer than the usual expectations. Many international students choose to study in Australia mainly because of its excellent education system, and high standard of living.

Here are just ten of the many reasons why you could consider making Australia your studying-abroad destination.

1. Cultural diversity

Australia is a diverse melting pot of cultures. The sheer amount of cultures that abound offers the chance to step outside of your usual comfort zone and experience something new, but also to feel a sense of belonging in the multicultural setting.

2. Outdoor lifestyle

Australia is famous for its diverse territory. The legendary Outback; thousands of kilometres of pristine beach; natural and city parks. During your holidays as well as during the week, you can dive, snorkel, Bushwalk, kayak, surf.. or simply enjoy a barbecue at your favourite spot with your mates!

Contact your Education Agent prior to see what they offer and whether you meet the eligibility requirements!

5. Internship and work placement

Some Australian universities and colleges offer internships or work opportunities to their students. This is so important for your career! While studying, you can Gain work experience, acquire new skills, build a network, gain references, and Grow your confidence!

6. Vibrant and laid back city life

Wherever you choose to study you will be able to fully enjoy your experience in Australia. Each city offers a multitude of unique experiences, from the spectacular Sydney beach scene to the quirky shopping boutiques of Melbourne, from the all year round perfect weather of Perth and Brisbane, to Darwin’s tropical summers.

7. Wildlife

Australia has some of the most diverse wildlife on earth. You might be lucky enough to experience some in the wild or in one of the many wildlife parks that offer close encounters with koalas, kangaroos, crocodiles, penguins, snakes, and more.

8. Easy communication

In Australia we speak English, “the global language”. Also, Australians are easy-going and used to deal with non-native speakers and they are used to different accents or funny pronunciations. However, the slang may take a little longer to master! If you’re struggling to keep up with conversation, ask someone to explain the slang to you. That will be fun!

9. Amazing work opportunities

As an international student, you are allowed to work part-time. If you truly enjoy your time in Australia, you may be tempted to stay on longer. Australia offers a Temporary Graduate Visa that allows some international students to stay in Australia and continue to work after they have graduated. Ask your Education Agent which qualification might lead to this great opportunity!

10. Global Recognition

Graduates from Australian schools are highly sought after due to the impressive international reputation of the Australian education system. This system is carefully regulated by the government in order to maintain the high standards of education associated with the country.

What is the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF)

The AQF is the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training. Delivered through the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment in consultation with the states and territories, it incorporates the qualifications from each education and training sector (schools, vocational and higher education) into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework.

One of the key objectives of the AQF is to facilitate pathways to, and through, formal qualifications. It also complements national regulatory and quality assurance arrangements for education and training.

The AQF is split into 10 levels, ranging from certificate 1, all the way through to Doctoral degree.

To learn more about the AQF visit aqf.edu.au.
