Study in Australia, beach and surf! If you have always dreamed of combining the three, Australia is the perfect place! We give you the 5 best reasons to study and get started, go!
1- The opportunity to improve your English!
And yes, studying in Australia is above all your best chance to improve your English or even to start learning it. Whether for a gap year, before applying for a job or to refine your disruptive start-up project :), just start!
Australia offers you a maximum of possibilities and a maximum of sun! Intensive English classes that will help you order at the bar and the restaurant, or courses that will prepare you for exams that you dread so much (yes we think of the famous TOEIC).
Intensive English courses are available for all levels, from beginner to advanced through courses dedicated to certain tests (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, PTE, …). With durations ranging from 1 week to 1 year, you will necessarily find a training adapted to your project.
2- Studying in Australia is also an opportunity to work AND travel!
Studying in Australia is TOP, taking the opportunity to get a professional experience is even BETTER!
Most schools and training centers offer courses lasting 15 to 30 hours per week. It is as much free time that you will be able to use to finance your activities and to discover « the land down under ». Your student visa allows you to work up to 40 hours per fortnight, or 20 hours per week, during class periods and then full-time during all school holidays.
So how does it work ?
In reality each school offers its own pace of study, with more or less condensed programs and therefore more or less frequent holiday periods. Some even allow you to « build » your own course and set your vacation as you understand it. It will give you the opportunity to work more during certain peaks of activities and thus maximize your income.
3- The opportunity to understand and integrate an internationally recognized Anglo-Saxon education system!
Good news, your French diplomas are recognized here and those passed here will be valid in France AND internationally!
Since 2009, France and Australia have signed an agreement on the mutual recognition of studies and diplomas for the pursuit of higher education in the partner country.
It is increasingly important to differentiate yourself in the job market, present a CV with a degree in English and a solid first experience abroad will allow you to capture the attention of recruiters. It is often difficult to apply from France, either because of distance or even jet lag, and start studying in Australia and the perfect springboard!
In practical terms, what is the Australian education system?
In Australia, we talk about AQF system (Australian Qualification Frame) and it includes different types of training:
- ELICOS: Intensive English courses, available at all levels and which also allow you to integrate professional training thereafter.
- VET (Vocational Education and Training) : This is the equivalent of our CAP, DUT and BTS. Vocational training courses lasting from 6 months to 3 years that prepare you for a trade or a field of activity. It is also the back door to integrate a graduate degree directly into 1st, 2nd or 3rd year.
- Higher Education : The Bachelor / Bachelor, Master, MBA and PhD at the Australian. Quality diplomas and access to scholarships.
To put it simply, the AQF system is:
- Diplomas and certifications recognized internationally,
- A multitude of practical and theoretical trainings that will allow you to support your personal projects,
- Bridges to visas to stay and make your dreams come true in Australia.
4- The opportunity to enjoy bridges to maximize your stay in Australia!
Studying in Australia remains your best option to extend your stay after your Working Holiday Visa (or PVT). You can even stay and work for another 2 years after a Bachelor or Master. This is possible thanks to the Post Study Graduate Visa.
It will also be easier to secure a sponsored job or even a permanent residence after these two years.
5- The opportunity to enjoy the quality of life in Australia!
You have probably heard of the sweetness of life to the Australian, it is not a legend! This country is famous for the kindness and honesty of its inhabitants but also for its magnificent landscapes and its generous climate. You will be able to enjoy an excellent balance between professional life and private life! The economy is dynamic, the job market is stable and wages are globally much higher than in Europe (the hourly minimum wage is set at $ 19.49, that’s it :-))
Utopia will you tell us? Well no, « Welcome to Australia mate »!
