aUS­TRALIAN in­sti­tu­tions ed­u­cate more than 400,000 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents ev­ery year. For many, the most pow­er­ful lure is the qual­ity and the di­ver­sity of Aus­tralia’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.

Aus­tralian uni­ver­si­ties are widely known for the qual­ity of their teach­ing and re­search. Aus­tralia’s ap­proach to vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing leads the world in in­no­va­tion and qual­ity.

Study­ing in Aus­tralia en­cour­ages cre­ative, in­no­va­tive and in­de­pen­dent think­ing. Stu­dents learn the es­sen­tial skills re­quired for ef­fec­tive team­work in­clud­ing com­mu­ni­cat­ing with oth­ers and de­vel­op­ing abil­i­ties to be­come global lead­ers.
