Right study program and university, Study in Australia Cost, scholarship options, entry requirements, and student visas are the most common things that Nepalese students should carefully research before they take a flight to the Land Down Under. In fact, these are the things that come straight to your mind when you do rough planning to study abroad.
The following are three additional things that every Nepalese student should know when studying in Australia:
Part-time job option for international students
Overseas students in Australia can work up to 20 hours a week during their study period, and there is no limit of working hours during the holidays and semester breaks. That means you can earn some extra money to bear your living expenses. You may use the money in travelling around the country as well. Working with a native would offer you an opportunity to improve your English and get better pay, which is something that makes study in Australia for Nepali students fabulous.
Work opportunities after study
Australia is known for its quality and ability to attract talented students through exciting skill development programs. In case you are looking to work and stay there after your study, you should do some research to find out what skills are in short supply in Australia and choose your study areas accordingly.
Since the employers and institutes all around the world accept Australian degrees and qualifications, you have great opportunities to work where you wish to.
Health and insurance
The Australian healthcare system is one of the best in the world. No wonder, the average life expectancy there is 82.8 years, placing the country among the top four nations of the 194 WHO-member states in terms of ageing and longevity. In order to maximise cost savings, international students in Australia are needed to have the OSHC (Overseas Student Health Cover). The health cover contributes towards the costs of out-of-hospital medical treatment, prescription medicines, in-hospital medical treatment and emergency ambulance assistance.
Also, there are plenty of non-compulsory types of insurance that you may find useful- travel insurance, private health insurance, vehicle insurance, home and contents insurance etc.
So, no matter whether you want to study engineering in Australia or any other course, these three things will be applicable in any case.
