Connecting Asian with Overseas Education
Study in Australia
The Australia Education system offers over twelve thousands courses that are recognised internationally and are of world class standards. The tuition fees and living costs to study in Australia compare better than most other countries with quality tuition being more affordable than in the UK, USA or Canada, whilst offering a safe studying environment for international students, and a standard of living that is among the highest in the world.
Australia has the third largest number of international students in the English-speaking world. Australian Education has a standardized system of qualifications, and together with great lifestyle opportunities there is no wonder why more than 200,000 international students choose to study in Australia. This together with Australia’s long history of teaching international students is proof enough that international students at Australian universities in Australia and their parents enjoy a level of service and financial protection that is unrivalled.
Australia has a dynamic multicultural society in which students can learn and travel in an English speaking country. There is the added advantages of being in close proximity to Asia, and the fact that international students can work up to 20 hours per week during semester and full-time during vacation periods.
All institutions from Australian Schools to Australian Universities, Australian English Colleges to Australian Vocational Education and Training colleges and TAFE’s must be registered with the Australian Government and meet stringent Australian education registration conditions ensuring that courses are of high standards in both ethics and quality.
Emphasis is placed on not only understanding concepts but also on their applications and theories, and the ability to critically examine different viewpoints and arguments, to collect and analyse data, to develop an argument in a logical form and to participate in discussion and debate with other students and teachers. This is an active learning process and not a passive listening one. Should assistance to develop a student’s study skills be required most institutions offer counselling services.
Assessment methods in determining a student’s progress vary between institutions. The students should fully understand how they will be assessed at the time of registering at a particular institution.
