Study in Australia

Australia now has around 630,000 international students from over 140 countries around the world. They are enrolled in a wide range of disciplines at every level of education, including short-term English language courses, bachelor and masters degrees right through to doctoral degrees.

Life style

Australians are very friendly and helpful people, with a great sense of humor and a natural ability to tell jokes and play with words. Sometimes they may appear cold because of their “private nature” which has been imported over the past 2 decades, but it just takes time to “Break the ice”, and everything goes well. It means you can talk about any subject, but for more personal matters, things will take a little bit longer to come out in the open.

In reality, Australia is considered one of the most competitive nations on Earth. This covers all areas of life including the work place

Accommodation

There are various types of accommodation available for international students, ranging from private leased apartments to on-campus accommodation.

Shared/Rental Accommodation A$100 – 350/week Renting a private apartment or sharing a house are popular and cheaper options for students. Some apartments and houses are furnished, and some students have to furnish themselves.
On-campus Accommodation A$100 – 250/week. Most Universities offer accommodation on or near the campus. This may be a Student accommodation village or Halls of residence. On-campus accommodation is a great option for students as meals are often provided and distances are short.
