Reasons to choose Australia

Are you confused where to study? Or are you not sure if the country you’re choosing is the best for you? If it’s the latter, read our article on: A Guide on Finding the Perfect Country to Study in. Moving on, here are a list of reasons why studying in Australia is a good option.

Best Universities

There are 11 Australian Universities that are under the Top 200 universities in the world. They are:

  • University of Melbourne (=32)
  • Australian National University (50)
  • University of Sydney (60)
  • University of Queensland (60)
  • University of New South Wales (71)
  • Monash University (=75)
  • University of Adelaide (=120)
  • University of Western Australia (=131)
  • Queensland University of Technology (=179)
  • University of Canberra (193)
  • University of Technology of Sydney (=194)

Flexible study options

It’s common for students to juggle study with competing interests, no matter which qualification level they are completing. Maybe you plan on adding study to a schedule that already includes full-time work and family commitments. Or perhaps you work part time and have some spare hours that you would like to spend indulging your interests or furthering your career. Whatever the reason, most institutions offer a range of flexible study options and attendance modes in addition to the standard full-time, on-campus mode to help you manage your time.

Flexible study options can be found at all institution types and qualification levels, although they are particularly common at postgraduate level. Keep in mind that not every institution and course offers every flexible study option.

Diversity

Australia has no official language, but the majority of the population speaks English as a first language. Australian English has a distinctive accent and vocabulary. Because people from about 200 countries around the world have migrated to Australia, there is a vast collection of languages spoken in the country. Other languages spoken in Australia include Mandarin, Italian, Arabic, Cantonese, and Greek. It is believed that at one time, there were almost 400 Australian Aboriginal languages, but now only 70 of these languages have survived, and all but 30 are endangered. One indigenous language is still the main language for about 50,000 Aboriginal people in Australia.

Art and Culture

Australia has many major art museums and galleries, both supported by the national, state, and local government, and by university and privately owned museums. The more prominent of these museums include the National Gallery of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, the Canberra Museum and Gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. In addition, there are the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, the South Australian Art Gallery in Adelaide, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Darwin, and the Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth. International students in Australia who are interested in the fine arts will certainly have plenty to keep them busy during their stay.
