And almost every degree is completely worth your money. Whether it's science & technology that you want to study or latest trends in marketing & management that hold your interest, Australian universities have it all.
Cheaper compared to the US:
Getting a foreign education is a hefty investment. But in comparison to their counterparts in the US and Europe, Australia is a pocket-friendly option. Their average tuition fees are less than what you'd pay for the same courses in America. The ROI is also higher because of the relaxed international student’s work permits.
Internships are what makes you employable once you graduate. And in Australia, there’s no dearth of them! Most Australian Unis have amazing career development centres that make finding internships a piece of cake.
Can I work while studying?
The answer to it is YES! You can. Australian Government permits most international student visa holders to work while pursuing their education. The limit 20 hours per week. But make sure before you line up for a job, your specific Visa allows it.
Part-time jobs are plenty for qualified students. Your rights are the same as the domestic students working part-time, which implies that you are eligible for minimum wage, that is, $17/hr. Industries such as retail, hospitality, tourism, agricultural, sales, etc. are usually on the lookout for student workers with flexible hours.
You can even choose unpaid internships for charities and government agencies or volunteer your efforts for a good cause.
