An immense territory, everything to discover
One of the reasons for you to study in Australia is all the incredible landscapes that this wonderful country offers! The territory has 5 different climates. During your stay in Australia, you will certainly have time to travel around this country. The good thing is that you can climb mountains located in the southeast, go on an adventure in the jungle, or explore many white-sand beaches and try to surf on the east coast!
The East Coast stretches over 36,000 kilometers in length and has more than 11,000 beaches. You will never have time to visit all places, but don’t panic, you will certainly come back from your adventure with stars in your eyes! We recommend that you make a list of the things you want to do and the places to visit so that you don’t miss a thing.
Going to study in Australia is a great way to improve your English skills. You will hear English spoken every day whether in the supermarket, in cafes, at the university, on the street, and on TV. Everything related to administration such as registering at the university, applying for a visa, booking your accommodation will also be done in English.
Living and studying in Australia is really a great way to learn English well as you will hear English all the time in your daily life. After 2 or 3 years in Australia, you will be bilingual and will be able to understand Australian slang, idioms, and the special Australian accent. Locals tend to shorten the pronunciation of words. No other English-speaking country uses so many abbreviations! Your ear will therefore be trained and you will be able to understand any English accent.
Australians are truly friendly
You maybe think “I can meet people anywhere, so I don’t have to cross the earth for that!” But we promise that you won’t regret meeting Australians and sharing their culture. Don’t be surprised that people are talking to you informally the first time you meet. It’s a totally normal way of speaking in Australia.
Find a job easily
If you decide to work while studying in Australia, know that it is very easy to find a part-time job. Thanks to the student visa Australia, you have the right to work a maximum of 20 hours per week. During the school holidays, you can even work full time.
You can easily find a part-time job in the same field as your studies. If your goal is to make pocket money by doing a job that doesn’t require special skills, you can apply for a position as a salesperson, server, promoter…
For your research, you can go to platforms such as Seek (the most famous) or Gumtree. On the other hand, to be able to work, it is essential to obtain your TFN (Tax File Number). Your recruiter will need it to pay you. After your studies in Australia, you will certainly have a better chance of finding a job.
If you decide to go back to where you were, your Australian diploma will look great on your CV. Your future employer will see that you are able to evolve in an international environment and that you have a good level of English, which is not negligible these days. The skills you will have acquired through your training in Australia will be a real asset in the job market.
After obtaining your Australian diploma, if you want to stay in the territory, you can apply for a “Temporary Graduate Visa”. It will give you the opportunity to work for 12 months in Australia. Be aware that in other countries like the United States, it is very difficult to obtain a work permit after graduation.
