Study in Australia

 An Australian education equips people with knowledge, skills and networks that will last a lifetime – and gives every student that studies with us the foundation they need for a Future Unlimited. For information on studying and living in Australia, visit the official Australian Government website for international students, Study in Australia.


The Australian Government currently invests over $300 million each year in international scholarships which, at any time, support around 5000 international students, researchers and professionals to study in Australia and for Australians to study, research and undertake professional development overseas. Information is available on the Australia Awards website.

Australian state/territory governments and education institutions also offer a range of scholarships. For more information read the Scholarships page of the Study in Australia website.
