Australia is only third to the UK and US when it comes to students wanting to study abroad. It has world class infrastructure, a high standard of life and relatively lower expenses. Australian universities are well known for its number of international students and for its higher education which is of international repute and provides excellent student support services such as emergency and health, educational, sports, and recreational facilities. Australia is also a multicultural country and yet the complete english language speaking environment makes it a great experience for the international students. It is great to know that the students passing out of universities in Australia get higher attention from the employers in Australia as well as around the world. However, for students who want to study in australia, getting admissions in internationally recognized universities takes a focused effort.
As per Australian education system, to apply for undergraduate courses in universities of Australia; the students have to have a minimum 12 years of primary and secondary education in Australia and should have Australia Senior Secondary Certificate of Education or an equivalent certificate from their home country.
To apply for the postgraduate courses in universities of Australia; the students must possess a bachelor’s degree of minimum 3 years duration from Australia or overseas. However, some postgraduate courses require students to possess a 4 years bachelor’s degree, similar to that of India's Bachelor in Engineering or Bachelor in Technology. Some courses would also require relevant work experience.
Once the students have applied to the shortlisted universities and completed the application process by submitting all the relevant documents, they need to wait since most of the universities take a few weeks time to revert. In the meantime, the students can go through the student visa requirements by visiting the local Australian Government office or by just checking information, filling application form and paying application fee online. The students can also make necessary arrangements to pay for the tuition fees and the ways to support themselves during their stay in Australia. As soon as the students receive an Electronic confirmation of enrollment (eCoE) from the applied university, they need to apply for the visa application. Students also need to get access to the overseas student health cover.
