Australia is home to 5 of the 30 best cities in the world for students. Given its outstanding reputation for the highest quality of international education, there are approximately 350,000 international students currently studying here. Over 250,000 students are making a positive difference in various parts of the world after getting an education in Australia. The culture of the country is diverse with a friendly native population, affordability, high quality of life and supports excellence in education. It is a growing destination that promises a lot more than just a learning environment – explore its natural wonders, the hum and excitement of cosmopolitan life and weather that reminds one of home.
The Australian education system is distinct from other countries due to its Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Established in 1995, AQF is a national policy and covers the whole gamut of qualifications including the tertiary education sector and schools.
The plethora of courses (approximately 22,000) and degrees on offer here ensures that Australia caters to almost every discipline of learning. International students continually find it extremely easy to find the right institution (over 1100) and course of study that interests them – a primary decision making factor. Students have a wide choice between universities, vocation studies and training in English – which is the main language of instruction in the system of education here. The government of Australia is highly supportive of the education system and annually invests approximately $200,000,000 on international scholarships.
