Incredible landscapes

One reason to study in Australia is, of course, all the incredible landscapes that this wonderful country offers! The territory has 5 different climates. Some places like the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef are part of UNESCO’s world heritage. During your stay in Australia, you will certainly have time to travel.
The great thing is that you can go skiing in the mountains located in the southeast, go on an adventure in the jungle, or go explore the many white sandy beaches and try surfing on the East Coast! The East Coast stretches over 36,000 kilometers in length and has over 11,000 beaches. You will never have time to visit the whole Australian territory during your stay but do not panic, you will certainly come back from your adventure with stars in your eyes! We recommend that you make a list of the things you want to do and places to visit so as not to miss anything. I

Improve Your English

Going to study in Australia is a great way to improve your English. You’ll hear English spoken every day whether in the supermarket, cafes, universities, on the street, and on TV. Everything related to administration such as registering for university, applying for a visa, booking accommodation will also be in English. So living and studying in Australia is really the best way to learn English since you will be constantly confronted with it in your daily life. After 2 or 3 years in Australia, you will be bilingual and will be able to understand Australian slang, idioms and the special accent of Australians. Locals tend to shorten the pronunciation of words. No other English-speaking country uses so many abbreviations! So your ear will be trained and you will be able to understand any English accent.

Friendly and Warm People

Don’t be surprised if people speak to you informally from your first meeting. It’s a totally normal way of talking in Australia. Your boss or even your doctor will call you by your first name. If people don’t know your first name, they’ll call you “mate”!
Australians are known to be very friendly and warm people. They are usually open-minded and relaxed so it’s very easy to approach them. Almost 30% of the country’s population is foreigners, which greatly influences its culture. You will meet a lot of Europeans, for example from Great Britain, Germany, Italy and even Croatia. Additionally, you will meet many people coming from Asian, including Chinese, Filipinos, Indians and more.

Discover the Indigenous Community

In addition, studying in Australia you will have the opportunity to discover the indigenous community, their culture, and their way of life. Want to eat something typically Australian? Why not try the crocodile or the kangaroo during your stay? Yes, this kind of meat is really sold in supermarkets! According to some nutritionists, these meats contain less fat and are healthier than the meats usually consumed.

Take Part-time Jobs


If you want to work at the same time as your studies in Australia, know that it is very easy to find a part-time job. Thanks to the student visa, you have the right to work a maximum of 20 hours per week and per semester. During the school holidays, you will even have the possibility of working full time. You can find a part-time job in the same field as your studies. If your goal is to make pocket money by doing a job that does not require special skills, you can apply for a job as a seller, server, promoter … For your research, you can go to platforms such as Seek (the best known) or Gumtree. On the other hand, to be able to work, it is essential to get your TFN (Tax File Number). Your recruiter will need it to pay you.
After studying in Australia, you will most likely have a better chance of finding a job. If you decide to return to your home country, your Australian diploma will be very well seen in your CV. Your future employer will see that you are able to evolve in an international environment and that you have a good level of English which is not negligible these days. The skills you have acquired through your training in Australia will be a real asset in the job market.

Apply for Temporary Graduate Visa

After graduating from Australia, if you want to stay in Australia, you can apply for a Temporary Graduate Visa. It will give you the opportunity to work for a period of 12 months in Australia. Be aware that in other countries such as the United States, it is very difficult to obtain a work permit after graduation.
