Get to know Australia.
Beaches, canyons, caves, the largest coral reef in the world, marsupials, cangurus, there are many things that make this country unique, no wonder Australia is one of the most sought after destinations for an exchange. Known for its natural beauties, the country has over 11,000 beaches to visit and countless other tours for you to be face to face with the wild life, such as dives and animal sanctuary visits.
Australia is recognized for its unique fauna and flora, but the country also has a lot of pastime possibilities in the cities for those who enjoy the urban lifestyle more. Australian towns are loaded with tourist attractions, such as museums, theaters, restaurants, music and sport events that will always keep your schedule booked.
Moreover, urban security is something that is worth emphasizing. Australia is considered to be one of the best countries to live in for its low indexes on criminality. It’s also the only country that has two cities on the top 5 of the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) ranking that classified the world’s most livable cities. The ranking considers a combination of stability, good infrastructure, strong education and healthcare services, and plenty of culture and entertainment to elect the most livable city.
And when it comes to studies, Australia is not lagging behind either; its institutions are benchmarks in education. Besides having universities considered to be one of the world’s best, the country also has two cities in the Top 10 QS Best Student Cities 2024, a ranking that defines the best cities for studying, based on factors such as the economy, student perceptions, diversity, and more. This indicates that Australia is open to having foreigners in its institutions. Not only that, we also inform you that it’s common for Australians to be very welcoming to exchange students, as they are part of an extremely multicultural country, with around 30% of its population being foreign.
Therefore, we can say that in Australia, you will always feel welcome, even if you want to extend your stay as much as you like. During your exchange period, you have the possibility of obtaining a work visa, which guarantees the labor rights of international students and can not only make it easier for the student to have a more extended stay in the country, but also assist in the immigration process.
