AUSTRALIA HAS DEVELOPED A REPUTATION OF BEING ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN THE WORLD TO STUDY. Universities like Monash University, Sydney University and Melbourne University rank highly. Representing the west coast, Curtin University is ranked in the top 1% of global universities, and has integrated campuses in Singapore, Malaysia, and Dubai. Not to be left behind, the Australian National University in Canberra recently launched the "Reimagining Project" to redefine its Engineering and Computing Science for the 21st Century.

While Australia's high school students have been sliding in PISA rankings for a long time, the country punches above its weight in the tertiary sector.

Pre-Covid, thousands of international graduates were granted permanent residency in Australia each year. In fact, I suspect that many students were studying in Australia specifically to get a migration visa. It was a good deal for both the students and the universities, who made a lot of money from tuition fees. Sadly, the party couldn't last forever.

Alternatively, they take a bridging course or "Foundation Year", to help prepare them for Australian university. Studying in Australia provides them points for their eventual permanent residency. Basically, the the younger you are the more points you earn, the type of qualification you have, and your English skills as measured by the IELTS test.

"You need 120 points to be eligible for an 880 permanent residency visa. To check where you rate go to the section of the DIAC website which deals with skilled migration

"There, you can learn about the points test and see which occupations make you eligible for skilled migration.

"The  E80 sub-class visa Eis not the only way for an international student to become eligible for permanent residency in Australia. nt to become a permanent resident of Australia after you graduate you need more information.

Named after a pioneer explorer, CSU is an Australian multi-campus university located in inland New South Wales, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory. The Mitchell Campus in Bathurst was my college of choice, and I went there for the Communications course, which was said to be once of the best in the land.

Many Brazilian students want to study on the Gold Coast, or in Brisbane. Some of them also study online at General Academy.

Many of my students on iTalki complain that their study stay in Australia has not been "immersive" enough. This is especially so on short stays at English language schools... Watching local TV programs is a great way to learn English passively, and also gives you something to talk about to Australian people. There are some fine Australian series and dramas such as Glitch, or Hannah Gadsby's Nanette.
