Australia is slowly becoming a top choice for students looking to pursue higher education in a foreign country. After US and UK, Australia is now the 3rd most preferred destination for students. These facts are not surprising considering the quality of education offered in Australia.
The options are plenty in Australia with more than 1100 educational institutions and 22,000 courses to select from. From primary school to post-graduate studies, international students can choose what to study in Australia depending on their current academic qualification.
Laws in Australia promote equality and are student friendly. International students get all kinds of protection against any harassment. The standard of education is regulated by the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000, the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2007 (National Code). They ensure a consistent standard of education for locals and to international students.
International students wanting to study in Australia courses should enrol in an institute and courses that are registered with the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). This registration ensures that the quality of education is at the highest level.
Australian Government also provide scholarships to students who come from a financially weak background. Some of the major scholarships available for international students are-
- Australia awards- The awards aim at establishing better education links and enduring ties between Australia and partner countries through this extensive scholarship program.
- Australian government research training program- From January 1st, 2017, this program replaced the International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) program. The application for this scholarship is made directly to one of the participating universities.
- Australia APEC women in research fellowship- The Australia APEC women in research fellowship take high-achieving female researchers from APEC countries for research opportunities in Australian education and research institutions.
All these scholarships are available for the international students, but the authorised institutions and private entities set the conditions for offering them.
