    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.

    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.

    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.
