What are the best universities in Australia?

My parents are both from Australia but I have never lived there. We’ve been there for some holidays and I have liked it very much. So much that now I’m considering studying in universities in Australia. I don’t have information about the Australian university rankings but I’m willing to consider any university. To be honest, my scores aren’t high and anyway my dream is to study there someday. Right now I’m thinking about getting an undergraduate degree but it may be better to wait and go later to gain an mba in Australia.

If you like Australia, you will surely like beautiful Australian universities such as The University of Sydney, the University of Queensland, the University of Melbourne and Monash University (https://www.timeshighereducation.com/student/best-universities/10-most-beautiful-universities-australia).
Apart from being beautiful, those universities provide a high-quality education. The University of Melbourne ranks 32 in the best global 50 universities list. According to Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings data (https://www.timeshighereducation.com/student/best-universities/best-universities-australia), this is the ranking of Australian universities in 2018:
1. - University of Melbourne
2. - Australian National University
3. - University of Sydney
4. - University of Queensland
5. - Monash University
In the first place, there is the University of Melbourne, established in 1853. At least 12,000 international students that come from 130 different countries study at this university. Then, there is the Australian National University, founded in 1946. It was created to be a postgraduate university for research and is proud to have six Nobel laureates who studied or teach there. In the third place, there is the oldest university in Australia, the University of Sydney, established in 1851. Students that come from more than 130 countries attend this university and it has 280 international exchange programs organized with 30 countries.
If you want to take postgraduate courses, obtaining an MBA in Australian universities is a good option. Australian MBA degrees are well-regarded internationally. To apply for an MBA, you will need to submit an error-free application. Watch out for grammar mistakes in your application and in your personal essay, since they may take your application away from being considered.
With your application, you will be asked to send your resume, because the Australian MBA programs are aimed at people who have already some work experience in the business field. You can ask your boss or supervisor to write a letter of recommendation to be submitted with your application. Additionally, attach a transcript of the certification of your bachelor degree. The school where you finished your undergraduate courses can provide you with that official transcript.
If you are not a native English speaker, you need to take the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) to be able to apply for an MBA. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is also accepted, but international students need an IELTS grade to get a student visa in Australia ( http://www.australia.edu/MBA/Apply-Now/ ). Although it is not required by most universities, you can present your grades from the GMAT.

I obtained my mba in Australia and I recommend this country to anyone who wants to study abroad. It was an unforgettable experience. I still keep in touch with the Aussie classmates that I had. I remember that before going there, the only images that came to my mind were jumping kangaroos, cute koala bears and wild dingoes. But Down Under is a lot more than that. There are many other things to study after your classes. If you know about or like architecture, you’ll be pleased to visit the Sydney Opera House and enjoy one of the performances presented there. If you are an environmentalist, you’ll love Australia. It has a variety of animals that are found only in this land. But be careful, don’t get too close to them or they could be dangerous. I’d rather keep memories of beautiful beach landscapes instead of a painful kangaroo kick.
