Higher education in Australia…You can choose to enrol in a graduate school in Australia (or university) to obtain a:
- Bachelor’s degree,
- Master’s degree,
- MBA (Master’s in Business Administration), or even,
- A Doctorate (PhD).
It’s true, higher education in Australia can be a big investment but there are 5 major advantages to deciding to do so.
What are they?
If you set aside the fact that you will live in Australia, you won’t have exams at the end of a term so less stress and you will be able to work 20h/ week to help finance your studies; why undertake higher education in Australia?
1 – OBTAIN A DEGREE THAT IS RECOGNISED INTERNATIONALLY
You will obtain a degree that is recognised not only in France, but also in Europe and in the rest of the world. Plus, studies abroad are often valued by recruiters. Ideal to make a difference!
2 – LAND A FULL TIME CONTRACT IN AUSTRALIA
At the end of your graduate studies, you will be able to stay from 2 to 4 more years in Australia thanks to the Post Study Graduate Visa (subclass 485). The duration of this visa depends on the region where you have studied and the level of your studies. This visa allows you to live and work full time in Australia (with an Australian-like salary)! No need for a sponsor!
The temporary working visa such as the sponsorship is becoming harder and harder to obtain. This is a unique opportunity to gain professional experience in your area of expertise, in Australia.
3 – THE “PARTNER VISA”
If you are in a relationship and you decide to study to obtain a master’s degree, your partner will be allowed to live in Australia with you and to work full time with no restrictions. Indeed, there is no limitation on working hours for them for the ENTIRE duration of your student visa. And, even after, should you decide to get the Post Study Graduate Visa.
This is of course only valid if you meet the requirements of the Australian Department of Home Affairs.
4 – A GREAT STEP TOWARDS THE PERMANENT RESIDENCY
If you want to settle in Australia, know that if you study specific topics, it can lead you to permanent residency! Obviously, it depends on the topic that you have chosen and the region where you have studied in Australia.
It’s good to know that to obtain the famous PR, studying in regions opens up more possibilities than studying in the metropole areas!
