Australia enjoys a unique position in the world of education. All its courses are internationally recognized as intensive, innovative and highly comprehensive programs. University of Melbourne and Australia National University are regarded as ranked amongst the top universities in the world.
The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) is a national policy which ensures a uniform and recognized progression for study. The AQF establishes pathways between qualifications and sets the standard for learning outcomes at each level, so not matter what you study, you can be sure to gain a formal recognition.
The Education Services for Overseas Students Act was introduced in 2000 and is exceptionally designed to protect standards for international students studying in Australia. This piece of legislation, was amended in 2010 and delivers regulatory requirements for education and training institutions through the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
A survey co-conducted by the Australian Government and top education groups in 2012, showed up that 86 % of international students responded that they were ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with their studying experiences in Australia.
Big and High profile discoveries have come out of Australia include penicillin, Wi-Fi, the bionic ear, the ultrasound machine and the flight data recorder (black box).
Also if you wish to study abroad and you don’t meet the academic requirements many Australian institutions offer foundation studies i.e. one year preparatory courses designed to provide the skills and qualifications needed to pursue higher education in Australia.
You can also earn while you learn as most student visas permit you to work up to 40 hours per fortnight while your course is in session, and full time hours during course breaks.
Australia welcomes students from all over the world and offers a wide range of living options to suit every ones needs.
