Study in Australia
Suppose you are looking at an internationally recognized degree accompanied by work experience in a culturally and linguistically diverse community here in Australia. Situated between the Pacific and Indian oceans in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia has become one of the popular study destinations for Asian students over the span of 10 years. Although Australia is the sixth-largest country in terms of area, it has a total population of 26 million. Still, the vast majority live in urban areas located in the eastern region. It is a highly developed country, with the world’s fourteenth largest economy and the world’s tenth-highest per capita income. The capital city is Canberra, and the largest city is Sydney, followed by Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide. For diverse cultures, quality life, employment opportunities, natural beauty, and affordable housing, these cities are among the top 30 cities in the world. Australia has no official language, but English is a de-facto national language while Mandarin, Greek, Cantonese, Italian, and Arabic are commonly spoken languages. There are 20 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Australia: the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmanian Wilderness, Lord Howe Island Group, Kakadu National Park, the Sydney Opera House, the Fraser Island, to name but a few.
There are strong reasons why Australia could be a perfect destination for your higher studies.
Australia has a world class education system where all universities and colleges, carefully regulated by the government through the Australian Quality Training Program, are committed to offer quality innovative education. With cutting-edge technology, friendly and safe communities, comprehensive curriculum and state-of-the-art infrastructure, Australia, with eight Australian universities placed in the top 100 in the latest QS World University Rankings for their academic reputation, employer reputation and international student ratio is the third world’s most popular international student destination next to the US and the UK.

While an undergraduate program can cost you from $AUD15, 000 to $AUD33, 000 per year and postgraduate tuition fees from $AUD20, 000 to $AUD37, 000 annually, Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) courses start at around $AUD7000.

With growing Nepali diaspora, Nepali students, who are planning to pursue their further education in Australia, can feel at home and safe, mingling with people around. While climatic condition of Australia is similar to that Nepal, helping in easy acclimatization, the breathtaking landscapes, beautiful coastlines, modern cities, heritage sites such as Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park are some of places students would definitely love to explore during summer and winter breaks.Australia offers great work opportunities. International students can legally work up to 40 hours per fortnight in Australia, easing financial burden of paying for some recreational activities during holiday breaks. Once students complete their study, they are entitled to work for 2-3 years under the scheme of post-study work visa. This gives students golden opportunities not only to gain international experience in their respective fields but also to earn money to compensate their investment.
