Higher Education

There are 37 state and 2 private universities in Australia. Australian degrees are recognised all over the world and open doors to a bright future for their graduates. At Australian universities, students are actively engaged in the learning process. The abilities to think independently and outside the square, critically assess the reading material, participate in discussions and work in a team are considered important.

Many universities offer Foundation programs for university study preparation which usually last up to a year. It is an interim step between secondary education obtained at an overseas school and starting a higher education program at an Australian university. They equip international students with knowledge and skills required for university-level study.

Usually, a Bachelor degree program takes 3 years to complete (longer for some programs and double degrees, up to 6 years). After studying for another year, students obtain Honour’s degree and if a student wishes to continue onto a graduate/postgraduate program, they can obtain Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Master’s degree or PhD.

Certain higher education programs can be undertaken at vocational colleges. Often, the cost of study is somewhat lower than that of a comparable program at a university.

To enrol, a student needs to demonstrate certain academic results, as well as English language knowledge of IELTS 5.0-5.5 (Academic) / TOEFL 500 for the admission into Foundation programs and IELTS 6.0-7.0 (Academic) / TOEFL 570 for the admission into higher education programs.
