Top Three Student Cities for International Students in Australia

With over 22,000 courses and 1,100 institutions, there is an excellent scope for undergraduate study in Australia for international students. 7 out of the best 100 universities in the world are in Australia. The Australian university system ranks 8th in the world, ahead of countries like the UK, Japan, and Germany. Moreover, Australian qualifications and degrees are recognised by universities and organisations across the globe, meaning you can work anywhere you wish to.

Apart from the quality education, the country is home to 6 of the 40 best student cities in the world. In 2012, a survey revealed that 88 percent overseas students are satisfied or very satisfied with living in Australia. No surprise, Australia is one of the four happiest countries in the world.

There are many world-class places/cities for overseas students to study in Australia, but the ‘problem of plenty’ often creates chaos for students. That’s the reason why the question ‘why and where to study in Australia’ keeps bothering Nepalese and other international students planning to study on this fantastic land of opportunities.

Providing an answer to the question mentioned above, we are telling you about top three Australian cities best for international students.


According to 2013’s QS City Index, Sydney is the fourth best city for students in the world. It’s also the most populous city in Australia. It’s a popular tourist destination for its marvellous structures such as the Sydney Opera house and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Also, the city is home to the oldest Australian university, the University of Sydney.


Better known for being an international centre for arts, Melbourne is recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature. It has the Royal Exhibition Building and the National Gallery of Victoria. Melbourne has the world’s largest tram network.


With two million houses and three major universities, Brisbane has the world’s highest student ratio. It is also popular among tourists for its proximity to spectacular white-sand beaches.
