Why Australia:
Australia is a leading global education powerhouse with world’s best facilities and educators with a wide
range of quality study options. Institutes in Australia offer a diverse range of study options with around
39 universities, 8 of which feature in the world’s top 100 universities. With over 1,100 institutes and
over 22,000 courses, be it graduation or post-graduation, MBA or master’s, engineering or a PhD, in
Australia students can choose between universities, colleges, premier institutes, vocational education,
and English language training, for any of the wide range of courses, depending on what is the right fit for
them. We at Southernseas help you understand how every different university differs. We act as
overseas education consultants for Australia.
Education System:
Australia’s education system is the third most popular international student destination in the world.
This isn’t surprising when you consider Australia has seven of the top 100 universities in the world. In
fact, with over 22,000 courses across 1,100 institutions, Australia sits above the likes of Germany, the
Netherlands and Japan, ranking eighth in the Universities. These are strong academic credentials, but
our institutions are just as highly rated as the cities that house them around the country. Australia has
five of the 30 best cities in the world for students based on student mix, affordability, quality of life, and
employer activity – all important elements for students when choosing the best study destination. And
with more than AUD 200 million provided by the Australian Government each year in international
scholarships, we’re making it easier for you to come and experience the difference an Australian
education can make to your future career opportunities.
Given this impressive education pedigree, it’s not surprising there are now more than 2.5 million former
international students who have gone on to make a difference after studying in Australia. Some of these
students are among the world’s finest minds. In fact, Australia has produced 15 Nobel prize laureates
and every day over 1 billion people around the world rely on Australian discoveries and innovations –
including penicillin, IVF, ultrasound, Wi-Fi, the Bionic Ear, cervical cancer vaccine and Black Box Flight
Recorders – to make their lives, and the lives of others, better.
There are many scholarships, grants, and bursaries which can help support you financially with your
studies in Australia. They are offered by the Australian Government, education institutions, and a
number of other public and private organizations. You can use the search tool available on every page of
this site to find scholarships, along with contact details for the institution providing the scholarship.
Work in Australia:
One of the benefits of being an international student in Australia is that you have permission to work
part-time while completing your degree. Australia, unlike other countries, gives those with a student
visa automatic permission to work. We have consultants for overseas education in Australia who help
you with these job searches and how to go ahead with different formalities. The Post-Study Work
stream offers extended options for working in Australia to eligible graduates of a higher education
degree. Under this stream, successful applicants are granted a visa with a visa period of two, three or
four years’ duration, depending on the highest educational qualification they have obtained.
