Why Study in Australia
A Future Unlimited: An Australian education equips people with the knowledge, skills and networks that will last a lifetime and gives every student that studies with us the foundation they need for a Future Unlimited.
Excellence: Australia has an international reputation for excellence in all areas of education and training. Australia’s scientists and researchers have been responsible for major breakthroughs and technological advances around the world. Our best-known achievers have won international awards, including eight Nobel Prizes. Australia is a technologically advanced society and you’ll study at an institution with great facilities.
Quality: Australia - a place where your quality of education is guaranteed.
Multicultural: Australia is a safe, friendly and harmonious country. When you arrive you may find yourself struck by the friendliness and hospitality of the people. Imagine: you’ve left your country behind, yet somehow, you’ve arrived home.
Value: In Australia you will enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world. Living costs and tuition fees are affordable and comparable to the United Kingdom and United States. You can even offset your living costs with part-time work while you study.
Recognition: When you graduate, your qualification will be recognized by international employers and leading education institutions around the world. This is because all Australian education qualifications are included under one national system - Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Support: Education institutions in Australia are among some of the best in the world offering modern and innovative facilities that will ensure your time as a student is positive and valuable, preparing you for a successful career in your chosen field. Student support forms a large part of Australia’s education system. Institutions take their responsibility to student welfare seriously. They provide specialist services to help international students adjust to life and study in Australia and to achieve their goals.
Education System: Education in Australia is primarily the responsibility of the states and territories. Education in Australia is compulsory between the ages of five and fifteen to seventeen, depending on the state or territory, and date of birth. Post-compulsory education is regulated within the Australian Qualifications Framework, a unified system of national qualifications in schools, vocational education and training (TAFE) and the higher education sector (university).
The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) provides the hierarchy of educational qualifications in Australia. It is administered nationally by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. Few qualifications outside the system are accepted by employers or for entry to tertiary study. The main exceptions are information technology vendor certifications and the International Baccalaureate.
Health insurance: International students studying in Australia must have adequate arrangements in Australia for health insurance. Australia has a special system of health care cover for international students. This is called Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and you are required to have this for the duration of your student visa in Australia. The average rate of OSHC starts from AUD900 and varies depending on the course duration.
Working Scope During & After Studies:
Under the current arrangements, student visa holders and their dependant family members (except masters by research or doctoral degree student dependants who can work full time), can work a maximum of 20 hours per week during the term once the course has commenced, and unlimited hours when the course is not in session.

A fortnight means a period of 14 days commencing on a Monday.
