Student life in Australia
Life in Australia
Australia being a developed country, one easily comes to expect the costs of living would be soaring high, but the reality isn’t as extreme. One can get admissions in a good college for $29,000-$37,000 per annum easily, depending on the university, discipline, city, program, undergraduate or graduate course among some other factors. Easy student loans are available at low interest rates, so the student can pay the tuition fees AFTER their studies end.
The Australian Government invests over $200 Million a year in international scholarships every year. So if you aspire to study in Australia free and you do have good grades, you can reach close to that dream by grabbing scholarships that waive off anywhere between 5-50% of your tuition fee.
In addition to this, the Australian government provides access to a work permit to their international students, which allows them to work for up to 20 hours a week. The costs of living and sustainability can easily be covered by this.
Being one of the strongest of economies, business and commerce are bound to flourish in Australia. Industries like Mining and energy, hospitality, healthcare, Banking and finance, and Material industries have been the biggest contributors to the Australian economy over the years.
Some other sectors have also been predicted to reach great highs in the coming future, stated by the IBIS report. These include Information services, tourism, investment banking, biotechnology, and power generation.
A student who graduates from an Australian university with a good result would not find it difficult to land high paying decent jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities in these and many great industries.
Australia and its culture
The island nation of Australia is a diverse country. The country is located in the southern hemisphere and is surrounded by the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. A large part of the landmass is comprised of forests and arid regions, with the most of the population concentrated in the urban cities. Being a world famous destination for travel, Australia is a beautiful country, full of a diversity of climates, terrains, and scenic destinations. Some of the most beautiful of beaches are here in Australia, and so is the Great Barrier Reef.
With a population that boasts of people from across the world, Australia’s culture is just as diverse. One of the quirks of living in the southern hemisphere is the opposite seasons to the north. You heard that right; June is the coldest month, while December marks the peak summer heat. Imagine celebrating summer Christmas and New Year on the beach!
