2) Australian universities have academic prestige
Another great benefit of studying in Australia is that no matter what students choose to study, they'll be able to find truly excellent instruction which develops and challenges them.
The Australian education system encourages innovative and independent thinking and fosters academic excellence - qualities which many students (and employers!) find very compelling.
You only need to look at some of its legacies to see: Wi-Fi, penicillin, the black box flight recorder, the Earth Hour initiative and the Cochlear implant are just some of the world-shaping inventions of graduates from Australian universities.
What’s more, its academic rigour is unquestionable. Australia as a whole ranked 9th worldwide in the 2020 Universitas 21 Ranking of National Higher Education Systems, beating other popular destinations like New Zealand, the Netherlands, Germany and France.
Seven Australian universities were ranked in the QS top 100 universities for 2022, too (Australian National University, The University of Melbourne, University of Sydney, University of New South Wales, University of Queensland, Monash University and the University of Western Australia).
