Australia is one of the most preferred destinations for education among Indian students, not only because of its world recognised qualifications but also due to the quality of education offered with research and the post masters opportunities available for students.
Seven Australian universities feature among the world’s best in the latest QS World University Rankings. While seven universities are in the global top 100, another 10 are in the top 300. Five Australian institutions claimed a place among the top 25 places in the Times Higher Education ranking of the international universities. Emphasis on Scientific research by Australian Universities is one major factor which made most of the universities get into the top QS World rankings, which is one of the major factors which attracts a large number of international students.
Along with that students can work while studying which can help them earn their living costs. With spectacular sights and weather Melbourne and Sydney are ranked among the top 10 preferred destinations for students in the world.
Australia has an integrated education system, which seamlessly connects primary, secondary, tertiary (or as we say higher) education and vocational opportunities. This system enables students to move from one stage to the other without feeling at sea. The cornerstone of the education system is the “Australian Qualification Framework (AQF)”, which is the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training. Given AQF’s reputation, Australian degrees are recognized across the world. With fewer universities in the country, Australian Government has complete control over the universities.
Besides, the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) framework protects the rights of international students studying in Australia, including your right to receive, before enrolling, current and accurate information about the courses, fees, modes of study, and other information from your institution and your institution’s agent.
