Australia is one of the top study abroad destinations for international students and there are many reasons for this.

It has some of the world’s best-ranked universities. According to the QS World University Ranking report for 2021, the country has seven universities among the 100 top-ranking universities in the world.

Australian universities are known for their high standards and quality of instruction. Their degrees are recognized all over the world.

Apart from this, the country offers a wide range of courses in a variety of subjects. The tuition fees here are affordable compared to the UK and the US.

Students in Australian universities are eligible for a post-study work permit valid for up to four years. This can act as a pathway to permanent residency in Australia.

Another advantage of studying in Australia is the low cost of living compared to other countries. Students can work part-time (up to 20 hours per week) when they are studying which will help them meet part of the tuition fees. They also have access to scholarships which can lower their costs of doing a course.
