AUSTRALIA

Australia is one of the most developed countries in the world. It is a modern, safe English-speaking country which offers a fresh, vibrant and friendly environment. It is the biggest country in Oceania and blessed with an appealing tropical climate.

Australia’s diverse culture and lifestyle reflect its liberal democratic traditions and values, as well as the social and cultural influences of the millions of migrants who have settled there. This has stimulated a true love affair with the arts. The attendance at art galleries and performing arts events is almost double that for all football matches. Australian cities host cultural festivals, music, theatre, dance performances and art exhibitions almost every day of the year.

Sports are also a national pastime - an estimated six and a half million people are registered participants in sports at which they excel. Swimming, cricket, tennis, sailing, football, horse riding, motor racing and surfing are the most popular of these.

The innovative Australian education system is world class and attracts thousands of international students every year. Students and their parents choose an education experience in Australia because they know that this will provide them with a successful future. Australian teachers and lecturers are very well qualified and are experienced in communicating with overseas students who are not native English speakers. The level of support offered to international students studying in Australia is excellent and students feel happy with so much support and encouragement while they are living the full “Aussie” experience.
