Study in Australia

Australia is internationally regarded as having one of the most advanced and innovative education and training systems in the world.

Australia is a leader in international education. Every year, students from around the world graduate from our institutions with high-quality qualifications in almost every field. Australian graduates are sought after by employers worldwide.

Australia is a safe and welcoming study abroad destination. Australia is one of the most popular international destinations for Chinese students.

Australian educational institutions are renowned worldwide for the quality of their teaching and research. Australia ranked second out of 188 countries in both Education Achievements and Human Development Index Trends of United Nations’ Human Development Report 2016. For its size, Australia performs extremely well in terms of global university rankings. According to the QS World University Rankings 2023, 7 universities were ranked in the Top 100 and 24 stood in the Top 500. Based on QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022, 9 Australian universities placed Top 100.Their performance is consistently better than universities in many developed countries with higher populations than Australia.

Australian researchers are developing ground-breaking technologies to improve the lives of people across the world. These projects add to Australia’s strong reputation for innovation, having developed inventions such as the first solar hot water heater, the bionic ear, the cervical cancer vaccine, the ‘black box’ flight recorder, Wi-Fi internet and the technology behind Google Maps. Australia’s industry led vocational education and training (VET) system is held as a benchmark around the world as a model of good practice.

Many overseas governments, particularly in the Asia Pacific region, look to Australia’s achievements and leadership in education, training and skills development to build the capability of their own education systems. Australia is geographically well placed to work in partnership to provide advice and consultancy services for the development of education and training systems in the Asia Pacific region and to work in partnership with national governments, industry, professional associations and companies to adapt to Australian education capabilities, systems and processes.

Australian graduates, including international graduates, are highly sought after by international employers. Alumni of Australian universities are leaders in their fields both within Australia and internationally. Many of Australia’s international alumni have become ministers, successful business people, researchers, scientists, medical practitioners and community leaders contributing to the social and development of their countries, particularly in the Asian region.

The quality of Australian education is carefully measured at all levels to make sure it meets our students’ high expectations. All institutions offering education to international students must meet the conditions of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act, and register all courses being offered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

Studying in Australia opens up a world of possibilities. Students develop new levels of independence and have opportunities to demonstrate initiative – some of the qualities employers seek most. Australian education institutions are amongst the finest in the world and students learn among internationally successful thought leaders.
