Australia

Australia is a safe and happy country. Sounds a little silly but it’s true! Australia is ranked in the top 10 happiest countries in the world according to the UN’s World Happiness Report while the big urban centres of Melbourne and Sydney are ranked in the top 10 safest cities in the world by the EIU Safe Cities Index of 60 cities worldwide. Due to the popularity of study abroad programs in Australia around the world, Australia has become well known for being a very accessible destination for international students. Australia is a country with many up and coming universities on the global ranks. The University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney and Australian National University have always traditionally been very exceptional places to study, but many other colleges are becoming known for their degrees.

Students can choose between universities, vocational education, and English language training. If necessary, it is easy for students to move between one qualification level and from one institution to another.
It’s also very easy to find a job so that you can make ends meet while you’re studying. In the urban areas, you may be able to find internships and apprenticeships that are related to the field that you are studying.

The Australian education system offers an outstanding learning experience at a relatively affordable price. Australia’s national quality assurance system is unique both in its structure and its rigor. International students, and even their parents, enjoy an unparalleled level of service and financial protection.

According to statistics, 71.8% of Australian graduates have found a full-time job 4 months after their graduation. In 2017 Bachelor graduates had an unemployment rate of just 3%. Regarding the same statistics, the average salary of graduates’ first full-time job in 2017 was $60,000, higher than in the previous year. At the same time, employers showed higher satisfaction with these employers. In particular, employers in 2016 said to be very content with Engineering, Health, Architecture, and Education graduates.

International students in Australia can work up to 20 hours a week and after graduation, they can also benefit from a post-study work visa. Additionally, the Australian government has initiated a Professional Year Program dedicated to all graduates in accounting, information technology and engineering programmes, allowing them to work in a local company.

According to a top 25 made by World Atlas, Australia is one of the safest countries in the world, with a very low crime rate. Apart from being the home of thousands of citizens worldwide, Australian people are known to be extremely friendly and outgoing people. So as a foreign student here, feeling welcomed is just one of the perks of studying abroad in Australia.
