Things to consider before studying in AustraliaPublished on October 20, 2016
As one of the top three international countries where foreign students study abroad (alongside the US and UK), Australia is fast becoming a popular international study destination due to its safe environment, friendly people and inclusive, multicultural society. As with any big decision, especially one that involves relocation to a foreign country, there are some things that you might wish to consider before coming to Australia.
Competence in the English language
This is probably the most important factor when planning your studies in Australia. If your proficiency in the English language is limited, you may be advised to enrol in an English language school before starting your degree or program. In most cases, international students are required to take language proficiency tests (such as IELTS) before they are allowed to enrol in certain programs. It is therefore crucial that you carefully examine the policies of your chosen institution in terms of English language testing and classes.
