What are the advantages of studying in a regional area?
You asked, we answered. You asked "What are the advantages of studying in a regional area?" and we gathered short videos from institutions, students and our IDP counsellors giving their answers and opinions.
University of South Australia
Hi, this is Kat from UTSA. So one of the benefits of being classified as a regional city is that YOUDECIDE graduates can apply for a third year on their first study work visa. It's also considerably cheaper to live here than some of the biggest cities on the East Coast. Having said that, Adelaide is a vibrant city with a population of one point three million people.
University of Limerick
Limerick is the third largest city in Ireland. It's a regional area on the west coast of Ireland, there's a couple of real benefits. So the first one obviously is cost. The cost of tuition and cost of living is lower than it would be in the capital city of Dublin. And the second, I think, is the welcome and friendliness, because it's a slightly smaller city, it's easier to get to know the place and make friends here as well. So they'll be the two main benefits of studying in a regional area.
Lakehead University is located in Thunder Bay in Arabia, giving students access to nature beaches and an overall calm environment, but still having full amenities at a lower cost of living. We recommend you check out our YouTube channel to learn more about your hometowns. Both campuses are also conveniently located 90 minutes from Toronto, either by plane or car.
Florida Institute of Technology
Hi, guys, my name is Faith and I'm from Melbourne, Florida, and like any other community, we have a lot to offer here in the Melbourne area from the Space Coast, we have Space X in NASA to offer our aerospace engineers, as well as our Melbourne airport for our flight students. We also have lagoon's in the beach for our marine biology students, and we have tons of businesses and opportunities around the community as well.
Hi, everybody, I'm Ben from the international team here in Western Australia, one of the advantages of studying at a regional and classified university or in a regionally classified location is that at the completion of your two years of study in Australia, you qualify to apply for Posti working rot's. What that means is if you are successfully granted, you can live and work in Australia for up to three years. If you're in a country based on location such as our Kalgoorlie campus, you actually qualify for an additional year on top of that as well. We've successfully granted.
