Do you want to get the most out of your studies? Would you like them to be of quality and open a great labor market? Do you choose to be bilingual in English? Well then it is normal that you are considering studying at a university in Australia. Whether undergraduate, master's or doctorate, coming to Australia is a super idea. And as we want it to come to reality, we give you a hand with this article, which is sure to clarify many things.

Why study at a university in Australia?

Let's go to the beginning. Why studying in Australia is a good decision.

University Quality

You will meet with reference universities. In most careers and masters the approach is very practical and they have a lot of resources that they make available to students. Good teachers and researchers, great facilities, good links with companies, etc.

There is almost no unemployment

In Australia the unemployment rate is almost non-existent. For that reason, both while you study and when you finish you will be able to work “on your own”. Gaining experience and knowing in depth the idiosyncrasies of the labor market in Australia.

Your partner can work full time

If your partner accompanies you with the couple visa and you are doing a master's degree, she can work full time.

Access the Temporary Graduate Visa

When you finish your studies you can access the Temporary Graduate Visa and work in Australia. The duration of it will depend on the studies you do, but what you will have for sure is the possibility of including yourself and making contacts in the Australian labor market. Then it will be easier to get other work visas.

You will be bilingual in English

There are many ways to improve English but we assure you that the most powerful is studying at the university with all subjects in English and with students of all nationalities with whom you will have to communicate.

What requirements do you need to access a University of Australia?

And you will ask yourself: what is needed to access? We tell you the most common requirements, although then you will have to see what exactly they ask for in the program that interests you. In some they may be minimal and in others they may ask you for a portfolio or work experience, for example. So at a minimum they will ask you:

  • El English level usually between 6.5 and 7.5 de IELTS. This would be a C1 or C2. If you don't have this level yet, don't give up. You can also come a few months before to take a preparatory English course and then get your C1 and enter the uni. We can help you with this super plan.
  • If you are going to study a master they will ask you for Your career title and translated notes. It is also common to demand a motivation letter and your full CV.
  • Normally, once you go to enroll you have to pay the first installment of the uni, that is, a full semester. It pays six in six months.

How much does it cost to study at an Australian university?

Prices vary between universities. In Australia there is no public university and everyone has to pay, yes, foreigners a little more, also because we access fewer scholarships.

To give you an idea, the price range can go between $ 18.000 AUD and $ 35.000 AUD annually. It is a price similar to what private universities cost in most countries, including Spain, and lower than it usually costs to study in the USA or UK. So if you are considering studying in a private unit, doing so in Australia, for all the extra benefits that it entails, is a great option.

The rate of the masters is usually higher than that of the degrees, but they also last less.

If you wonder if you could pay for a university in Australia working part-time with the student visa, the answer is no. Yes, the cost of your life in Australia Yes, you can afford it. That is why you would need to have savings to pay for your start-up studies even if the day-to-day expenses (rent, food, transportation, etc.) you pay with whatever you earn.

If these prices go out of your budget, check out the VET courses, which are also a good option.

Scholarships for foreign students

There are some scholarships from different Australian and Spanish or European institutions that you could access. For example:

Scholarships from Australian universities

These scholarships are great but you have to have a brilliant CV. Keep in mind that there is a lot of competition. What you have to do is go looking for university by university your own scholarships. So you will see the requirements. Our advice is that if you think you fit, throw them all.

In some universities you will meet with scholarships that cover all the tuition and in others with partial scholarships. There are both for master and for degree.

There are private institutions that grant students to study in Australia. For example:
