With these, Australia is recognized as a country that offers world-class education.

Some of the most popular fields to study are the natural sciences, mathematics, engineering, social sciences and medical fields. Australian study programmes cover almost every possible subject students might need.

Australian degree is a globally recognized degree
When you study in Australia, your degree is trusted and recognised internationally. The Australian education system maintains its international reputation through high educational standards, with its universities standing out in world league tables. Moreover, most courses and training undertaken by international students in Australia are covered by Australian Qualification Framework (AQF). It is a system of learning which is authorised by the Australian government.
 

Be at the forefront of Technology and Innovations
Australia has a reputation for adopting new technologies at a faster rate than in most other countries. Facilities for teaching, training and research are world-class in terms of state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, outstanding libraries and modern technology. One of the most appealing aspect of the country for international students is the quality of scientific research. Australia is at the forefront of new technology and innovations. Students who study in Australia can take advantage the country’s impressive technology and research resources. Australia has quality of scientific research programs available for international students.

Pay reasonable tuition fees
Australian education programs represent great value for money. Fees for vocational courses in Australia start from $AUD7000 and can reach around $AUD30,000 per year. An undergraduate program can cost you from $AUD15,000 to $AUD33,000 per year and postgraduate tuition fees range from $AUD20,000 to $AUD37,000 annually. Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) courses start at around $AUD4000 while fees for foundation studies start from $AUD15,000 per year. Planning to take up an English language course? These courses start from only $AUD300 per week depending on the course length.

Australian courses are often shorter than alternatives in other countries, particularly in the US. Most Australian bachelor degree courses can be completed in three years and even less if the education provider works on a trimester system. This means that you can save a whole year's tuition fees if you choose to study in Australian rather than in the US or the UK.

Australian graduates have excellent job prospects from their internationally-trusted universities. Working during your studies is also encouraged – international students on student visas are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week to boost their living expenses. Work experience and internships are all ways in which you can gain Australian work experience in your field of study and be competitive in the international job market after graduation
