Did you know that Australia has some of the world’s most international universities, and that it is one of the world’s most famous study abroad destinations? Well, we thought you might. Almost all of us have a few friends who will study in Australia and Oceania and have the time of their lives Down Under, and almost all of us have wondered if there is something extra special down there that we have been missing!
If you study in Australia and Oceania, you will have the chance to study in some of the world’s most recognised universities, surrounded by some of the world’s most unique natural wonders. New Zealand boasts several greatly recognised higher education institutions as well, which of course, also teach in English! Who wouldn’t want to carry out their studies surrounded by that beautiful landscape well known from it’s appearance in the Lord of the Rings movies? Some smaller island countries from around the region make for interesting and exotic study abroad destinations as well. Do you know anyone who has studied in Fiji, for example? Neither do we! But it is a possibility, and it might be just what you’re looking for to stand out from other graduates who have studied at more traditional destinations.
Australia and Oceania offer multiple choices
Studying in Australia and Oceania definitely gives you some competitive edge. Not only will you be studying in some of the most valued universities in the world, but you will also meet people from all around the world due to the extremely high level of international students coming to this area year after year. No matter if you decide to stay after graduation to get a nice job, or if you decide to return to your home country, your networks will continue to flow from all over the world once you have studied in Australia and Oceania.
Universities in this area have good practices on how to make international students feel at home. In Australia and Oceania, you will certainly find you dream degree from an abundance of fields, such as law, business, hospitality, engineering, information technology, political science and many more!
Tuition fees and scholarships
Studying in Australia and Oceania may not be on the cheaper side. There might be some hefty tuition fees, and the costs of living are not as affordable as, say, the neighbouring countries in Asia, but for the unique experience that comes along with the great quality of education here, thousands of young people each year find a way to pay for their tuition fees and living costs.
Of course, there are some great scholarship options available from various sources! In addition to scholarships, Australia also provides a permit for students, and even encourages them to work part-time during the studies. How great is that! Not only will you be able to earn income, but you will also be able to get some valuable working experience to prepare yourself for your future career.
Free time like none other!
From the lushness of the “Shire”, to the hip beach parties, Australia and Oceania will keep you happily busy during your studies. And during your weekends. And your holidays! Some of the most awesome sceneries in the world are to be seen in this area – and not only on land, but also by sea. Responsibly enjoy the endangered coral reefs underwater by scuba-diving or snorkeling, and finish up your long study days by partying the night away with some of the hippest nightlife in the world.
If you consider yourself a foodie, you can always count on the vast Oceanic cuisine to be there for you! Influenced by flavours and ingredients from all around the world, Oceanic cuisine can keep you satisfied for years to come. The wine regions are broad enough to satisfy even the most sophisticated of wine souls. Maybe you’ll even get the chance to experience the Samoan “umu”, a very traditional earth oven which will provide your tastebuds with some of the most amazing flavours.
