Studying in Australia

Given its sheer size and level of economic development, there are numerous studying opportunities for foreigners in Australia. The higher education system is represented by public, private, and other special institutions. Nonetheless, it has been estimated that Australia is one of the most expensive countries in the world in terms of tuition and fees. Foreigners could obtain a scholarship for a semester or two of studies in Australia if their local university has an exchange programme set up. The vocational training system is also highly developing, giving foreigners the opportunity to become apprentices in a large number of trades.

Some Australian education institutions organise work and study programmes, through which international students can attend courses and work in the meantime, so as to be able to sustain their cost of living. Several universities also organise a variety of short term study programmes. These programmes can last one week, one month, or one summer. The topic of the programmes depends on the university that is offering it, and it varies from environment conservation and photography to aboriginal studies and health.

The beach is an important element in Australia. Consequently, water sports are extremely popular in the nation. There are a variety of classes you could enrol in, ranging from surfing and sailing to wakeboarding and water ski.

Most nationalities will require a student visa in order to be able to attend a study programme in Australia. Check with a local embassy for more information.
