Australia is huge, not just in size but also in the kind of quality education it offers. With the wide variety of course choices, you cannot do everything at once, so decide where your interests lie, prioritise, and then plan your higher education accordingly.
Australia has some of the world’s most modern, diverse, and vibrant cities, each unique in its own culture and natural beauty. On the east coast lie Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast, and on the west coast lies Perth. Down south lies Adelaide; up north lies Darwin; and in the red centre lies Alice Springs. The Australian countryside is unlike any other countryside. It’s well-developed and sparsely populated.
With 50,000 kilometres of stunning coastline linking over 10,000 beaches, Australia is renowned for its white sandy beaches and abundant water sports activities. You can swim, dive, snorkel, sail, surf, parasail, sandboard, kayak, go boating, and then end the day with a beach BBQ.
Australia has it all—it’s where you experience the real vastness and dramatic landscapes of Australia to ensure you make every day worthwhile as you study in Australia for Indian students.
