Why Australia is the Best Place in the World to Study
With its incredible weather, world-beating standard of living and boundless personal and
professional opportunities, there’s no wonder so many international students flock to Australia year after year, with many even choosing to extend their studies and travels if given the chance.
If you’re considering choosing Australia for your university or other higher education studies, read on to discover why it’s among the best locations in the world for international students, and learn how we at Skilled Studies Australia can help you leading up to, during and after your visit.
With its unbeatable weather, high standards of safety and excellent standard of living, there’s no better country than Australia to pursue study as an international student.
Australia enjoys an excellent reputation internationally with regard to the quality of its academic institutions, and the subsequent quality of the graduates it produces.
Given this, graduates from Australia often become highly sought after in the jobs marketplace, enjoying improved career prospects. In many industries, an Australian qualification is recognised by employers all throughout the world.
Constantly updated with input from industry pioneers and thought leaders, a degree or other qualification from an Australian university will help ensure your skills and knowledge remain current, relevant and up-to-date.
When you’re ready to head back home to pursue your professional career, the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) helps your home country by providing an easy way to recognise your qualification and issue you with the equivalent degree at home.
Low cost of living
Australia’s standard of living is consistently considered to be among the best in the world. Compared with other global leaders in education such as the UK and US, Australia can even offer you significantly lower costs of living, utility and tuition.
Depending on the location you choose to study in, you’re also permitted to work a certain number of hours per week while you study in Australia, helping you to offset your living costs substantially.
And if you so choose, you’ll even be able to gain work experience in your chosen field whilst completing your studies, helping to supplement and put into practice what you’re learning in your courses.
A host of education options
Educational institutions in Australia offer a wide variety of courses and degrees, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to deciding on a degree and field of study.
Choosing what school caters most to your needs and interests, you can choose between universities, vocational education programs and English language training, and potentially combine all three.
Furthermore, as part of an effort to reduce congestion in the larger capitals, the Australian Government has for some time been attempting to funnel travellers, students and other temporary visitors to Australia into rural and regional areas.
This move has typically involved providing employers in the regional areas greater access to highly skilled international workers, particularly when workers in those specific sectors are not adequately available within Australia. The Government is also working to create more employment opportunities in the regional areas of the country.
Australian universities enjoy a very high reputation internationally, known for their high levels of academic achievement and the quality of the courses their institutions teach.
With seven of the top 100 universities in the world located here, Australian educational institutions are standard-bearers, even when compared with Great Britain and the USA.
And with the third-highest number of international students each, behind only the aforementioned countries, Australia is consistently a location of choice for international students of all ages and backgrounds.
And beyond standard college and university degrees, Australia is also well-known for its other tertiary and higher education options. Options such as TAFE (Technical & Further Education) offer shorter, more affordable courses that provide you with practical, real-world skills and qualifications.
