Study in Australia

If You’re Thinking of Australia, We Can Help You.

There are 2 intakes for Australian universities – in February and July. University or AD/HD Year 1 Hong Kong students can enter the first year of a bachelor’s degree course in Australia with DSE results and complete the degree in 3 years at the earliest, while F.6 students can apply for a 1-year foundation program with internal grades and progress to university afterwards.

Australia proves a popular destination to study in, welcoming international students from all around the world. Australia is home to several leading universities such as the renown “Group of Eight” (Go8), providing a wide range of courses including those unavailable in Hong Kong. With ample and diverse career options, students are more likely to explore their interests and set out clear directions studying in Australia. Relatively low tuition fees (compared to the US and Europe), flexible education system and close monitoring of the federal government also make Australia a favourable study abroad destination.

Some Australian cities such as Sydney and Melbourne are recognized as the most liveable cities in the world, providing a relaxed and comfortable study environment which gives parents peace of mind. Want to know more on studying in Australia? Contact us now!

The Group of Eight (Go8)

The "Group of Eight" (Go8) is a coalition of leading Australian universities, distinguished by depth and quality of their research programs. All 8 member universities rank top 150 in QS world rankings 2022. Over 70% of Australia's research projects are carried out by the Go8, of which more than 95% have obtained US patents. They have nurtured a huge number of talents across the business and political fields internationally, and many of them are Nobel prize winners.

Australian universities have lower admission requirements than Hong Kong, and they offer great flexibility in study progression, so it’s not as hard as you think to get into the Go8!

Study Pathways of International Students

There are 6 years of secondary education in Australia. F.4 Hong Kong students can choose to enter grade 11, take public exam at grade 12 and apply for universities with public exam results. If you are F.5 or above, you can opt for a 1-year foundation program which grants you university entry upon meeting internal requirements. In this case public exam result is not required. You can also take a more skill-oriented certificate or diploma course and enter Year 2 of a bachelor’s degree course with internal grades.

Tuition Fees and Living Expenses

The cost of living in Australia is about 18,000 to 22,000 AUD, depending on the city of residence and personal living habits. In terms of tuition fees, certificate and diploma courses normally cost around 4,000 to 22,000 AUD per year, and bachelor's degree courses cost around 15,000 to 33,000 AUD per year, relatively lower than that in the US and Europe.
