STUDYING IN AUSTRALIA
Australia is one of the world's most popular study destinations, for obvious reasons. And it’s not just for her sandy beaches and a deep azure ocean, or her cold cans of lager, and barbeques. Australians, especially students, do enjoy a drink on the weekend; and the warm weather does indeed lend itself to the outdoor preparation of food. But a description of Australia would not be complete without mentioning her impressive higher education system, which was ranked fourth in the QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings 2016.
Known to be strong proponents of internationalization, Australian universities are well-prepared to welcome large numbers of international students each year. Apart from just one, members of Australia’s Group of Eight (similar to the US Ivy League) make it into the global top 100, and a total of 37 Australian universities are featured in the rankings.
