I have been to Australia many times, and I can testify that the place is very good. I went to Australia through the CIEE’s study program, and I can say that I was provided with a lot of information before going there. You can learn so many things about Australia by approaching the website and staff of this company. The company provides you an opportunity to interact with people who have been to the country before. You get a chance to hear from parents and even students who have been to Australia.

Recently, Australia has become a preferred education destination for many students around the world. In any school in Australia, you will get an educational experience with a difference. The country’s education and learning styles inspire creativity, innovativeness, and independence. Traditionally, Australian graduates have managed to secure important jobs and occupy senior positions in reputable companies globally. Majority of the leading international universities gladly accept students from Australia for postgraduate study.

Australia is not only a safe and friendly country but also a multicultural one. Besides, Australians appreciate the cultural and social diversity that comes with many international students. Even when you are not familiar with their culture, Australians will work had to help you adjust to their lifestyle. The country is very safe and has strict gun laws that have played an important role in reducing crime. The country has a well developed political system and you will have nothing to worry about. The Australian culture is composed of people from almost 200 countries around the world.

Australia is a large country that experiences different seasons. Some areas experience temperatures as low as zero while others have extremely high temperatures. Australia experiences all four seasons although it depends on your location. For instance, Sydney has warm to hot summers and mild winters. Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year. Heavy rains are experienced between March and June. Students enjoy the end of semester breaks called ‘summer holidays,’ or ‘Christmas holidays.’

Although Australian universities offer quality education, one of the major challenges that they face is an efficient funding system. Any university in the UK can do any research because of the country’s university funding system. As a result, British universities can easily afford expensive STEM subjects. They can buy any material and facility that is needed for these kinds of studies. Australian universities rely on international students to even finance scholarships in their institutions.

Australia is a great destination especially for students from English speaking nations. Most international students who don’t use English as their first language complain about their teachers in most schools in
Australia speaking too fast. However, the main advantage of studying in Australia is that English is the language that is used even by the local people. Consequently, international students find it easy to adjust to the local accent. In addition, if it is your first time going to another country, it is important to be ready to overcome homesickness and climate change. As for me, I used to spend a lot of time talking or video chatting before I got used to being away. As for the climate, I had to change my wardrobe to suit the areas climatic conditions. Within no time, I had overcome all these challenges, and my life there became very easy. If you are determined to study in Australia, put in enough effort and you will achieve your goals.
