Planning to study in Down Under? There’s a reason why many international students have returned from their Australian adventures filled with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.

Apart from the array of sights and sounds to be explored, Australia is renowned for its world-class institutions and quality teaching standards. In fact, the Australian government invests more than $200 million in scholarships annually, with other entities such as education institutions, public and private organisations contributing to the mix as well in order to enhance the Australia education system.

This is good news for Malaysian students keen on applying for scholarships to study in Australia.

Australian universities and colleges provide a wide range of scholarships to international students to help them fund their studies. Apart from this, many scholarships, grants and bursaries are also offered by the Australian government, public and private establishments.
