What are the best locations in Australia for international studies?

Going to Australia is a dream of mine and I find that doing it for studies can kill two birds with one stone. This can be an education done with fun. Of course, I understand that my studies have to be taken seriously, but there will be plenty of time to explore. I know that international studies are not easy, so, I’m asking your help on the matter. What are the best universities in Australia? Do they accept foreign students? What about internship abroad? Is there such an option in this country?

When it comes to going to another country for some time, it is crucial that you actually like the place. Abroad studies are not an exception. You may like the university or college you attend a lot, but if you are not satisfied with the place of living, your time there will be miserable.

So, let’s take a look at those international study locations that are most popular among students. I think that Oceania is, in general, the best place to come for an educational program. Australia, in particular, is a place to combine fun and work.

The first place I want to mention is not the capital as you may have thought. The first one is Melbourne. There are actually a few advantages this city has before Sydney. Its local culture is wonderful. The atmosphere of this place is nothing like a busy modern capital. It has a unique spirit that can be found only in Australia. This is mostly a place of artists and creativity. Colorful graffiti, small side streets, elegant coffee places, and numerous exhibitions add a touch of modern appeal to the local culture. The surrounding areas are full of beautiful and exotic nature. This is one of the best places in Australia. The universities of Melbourne are also favored by students. It has three leading universities: The University of Melbourne, RMIT University, and Monash University.

Then, as expected, comes Sydney. Its nearby coastlines can charm anybody. This is the most obvious choice for any international student. Though this is a huge modern cosmopolitan, nature is never far away. In addition, the city has several wild parks where you can see all those koalas and kangaroos that you have probably come for anyway. The University of Sydney is the best university in Australia, an establishment that student all over the world would be lucky to get into. It is particularly popular among students interested in economics and international affairs.

The next location I would like to suggest is far less known than the previous two—Perth. The city is located in Western Australia and somewhat isolated from the busy life of the rest. This is exactly that indigenous Australian education experience that many students hope for. Here, you will not only study in a prestigious University of Western Australia but also enjoy its off-beat nature and roam the huge Kings Park. This is an ideal place for your abroad internship.

I would like to add the Gold Coast to your list. This is one of the most popular places in the country. I think you can guess why judging by its name. Though this place is most popular with tourists, it also has great university options: Bond University and Griffith University. They are smaller but just as much well-known. Besides, Griffith University is among the top 3 percent of the best universities in the world. Miles of sandy beaches and tons of 24/7 entertainment make this location a destination for students who want their fun. In addition, all that tourist business is a constant supplier of part-time jobs that are valuable for international students. Getting a student visa, you can work up to 40 hours in a fortnight with is enough to get decent money.

Think about your international studies carefully and prepare to face many challenges on your way.
