Why Australia

Reasons to pursue education in Australia

Australia is a popular destination for international students. With a strong economy, work benefits for many new graduates, relaxed culture and high-quality education system, it is easy to see why.

Strong economy sector

The Australian economy remains one of the most buoyant in the developed world, with low unemployment and inflation.

Best cities to live

According to a CNN report about Economist Intelligence Unit's 2018 Global Liveability Ranking, three of the top 10 most liveable cities in the world are in Australia – in fact, for seven years Melbourne had been reigning number one! The other two Australian cities in the top 10 are Sydney and Perth. This is based on a range of factors including stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

Top-ranking universities

Australia is home to some of the world’s leading universities. 20 Australian universities were ranked among the top 400 universities in the 2018 QS World University Rankings. Australian universities offer a high level of support to international students, including foundation years and pathways, academic support, English language support and consumer protection.

Various courses for you to choose

Educational institutions in Australia offer a variety of programs and educational degrees for students. This makes international students can choose between universities, colleges, and vocational education institutions to English institutions in Australia that are in line with their desired majors. In addition, almost all educational institutions in Australia have designed study programs offered with career prospects that make students have the skills needed in the world of work today.

The opportunity to gain work experience with post-study work arrangements

Many international students now have the opportunity to spend more time in Australia following the completion of their studies.

The Australian Government allows graduates to work in Australia temporarily with Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) available for an Australian bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree. The new work arrangements for graduates, combined with Australia’s strong economy and low unemployment rates, make Australia an attractive destination for students.

Your IDP Education counsellor can advise you on these changes and how this could benefit you.

Quality standards

Australia has a national regulatory and quality agency for higher education – the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). It was established by the Australian Government to monitor quality, and regulate university and non-university higher education providers against a set of standards developed by the independent Higher Education Standards Panel.

In addition, the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) law protects:

  • The wellbeing of all international students.

  • The quality of students' education experience.

  • The provision of up-to-date and accurate information.
