Australian education institutions have one goal: to set you up for success. Our providers rank highly amongst other universities around the world for academic excellence. Nine Australian universities are in the top 150 in the world. What’s more, our institutes have an impressive record of producing Nobel prize laureates and achieving amazing breakthroughs, discoveries and innovations. 

But what really sets our unis apart is their innovative approach to teaching. Australia is one of the first countries to adopt and implement new technologies, allowing students to experience cutting-edge learning and state-of-the-art facilities. Universities here also strive to deliver practical, career-oriented training so graduates hit the ground running when they enter the job market, seamlessly translating their learning and skills to the workplace.

Better value for money

Considering the exchange rate, Australian universities are less expensive than those in other English-speaking destinations, such as Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The time needed to complete a degree is also shorter, as you can see in the table below, which brings the total cost down even further.

Australia 3 years
Canada 4 years
UK 3-4 years
US 4 years

Simple application process

Applying to study here is an easy process, especially when compared to the United Kingdom and the United States, both of which are lengthy and costly. To study in Australia, prospective students first need to apply for admission to an institution, then for a student visa, all of which can be done online.

The process is as follows:

  1. Choose to study in Australia
  2. Decide on a course and education provider
  3. Check entry requirements for your course and visa
  4. Apply for the course
  5. Receive your offer letter
  6. Receive your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)
  7. Apply for your visa
  8. Book your flights

Before you begin your application, take some time to learn about the eligibility and application requirements for an Australian study visa. 

Safe and pleasant study environment

Australia’s universities are situated in some of the best locations in the country. With its low rate of crime and stable political environment, Australia consistently ranks amongst the safest countries in the world, and the country’s quality of life is known to be among the best.

In 2023, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne were all ranked within the top twelve most liveable cities in the world. Australia is blessed with amazing nature and climate, so whether you prefer the beach, the mountains or city life, this country has it all.
