Study abroad in Australia
Why study in Australia?
If you are wondering why you should choose Australia for study, then look no further. With its strong reputation for higher education, stunning nature reserves and beaches, and a relaxed lifestyle you will have it all to look forward to.
International students choose to study abroad in Australia because of its reputation for high quality education. One of the top attractions is the Australian university system, which is ranked in the world top 10 (Universitas 21 2017). Undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at Charles Sturt University Study Centres are relevant to the real world because they are designed in collaboration with academic and industry professionals, providing internationally recognised qualifications.
Beautiful natural landscapes
With UNESCO World Heritage-listed locations like the Blue Mountains, Fraser Island, the Great Barrier Reef, it’s no wonder that Australia is a popular destination for tourists and students alike. You can hire a car and drive the Great Ocean Road for stunning coastal scenery, or explore the tropical wonders of Whitsunday Islands. Adventure lovers can go hiking in the rainforest, scuba diving by coral reefs or try surfing at the iconic Bondi Beach.
Australians are known for being laid-back and relaxed, perhaps thanks to the long summer days and warm weather. Café culture is popular in the cities where you can enjoy excellent brunch (a combination of breakfast and lunch), delicious coffee and food from around the world.
When you get here it will be easy to see why people from all over the world come to visit Australia, and why many make it their home. It is modern, welcoming and offers a relaxed lifestyle. Choose to study and live in one of three exciting cities, Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney, where you can experience a warm sunny climate, beautiful surroundings, diverse culture, excellent-quality food and friendly communities.
Improve your English
Studying in a country where English is the local language is the perfect way to improve your English language skills. You will learn and develop the ability to communicate in a variety of situations, from buying a coffee to socialising with friends.
Excellent career prospects
When considering your options, think about why Australia for education is an excellent choice and what type of career you want to go into after graduation. Gaining a globally recognised qualification from a respected institution in Australia will help you stand out to employers whether you are considering working in Australia or in your home country after your studies.
Activities for students
There is plenty to look forward to when you join us at the Study Centres. We offer a range of activities, events and trips to help you settle into the Australian culture and make friends.
Joining a sports team and taking part in sporting activities is a great way of integrating into the Australian way of life, as well as making new friends and keeping fit. At your Study Centre you can get involved in lots of different sports. They range from cricket (during summer), football (during winter), badminton and table tennis (throughout the year). Our student engagement officers and SRC can help you find the right sporting activity or group for you.
Every year, students and staff from the Study Centres travel to the University's Bathurst, Port Macquarie or Wagga Wagga campus for a two-night trip. The program includes sporting competitions, cultural activities and a campus tour.
The gala is the biggest event held at our Study Centres. It includes a formal dinner with speakers, awards and entertainment. The night is a celebration of both student and staff achievements, such as the prestigious Executive Dean’s Awards, Academic Achievement Awards, and Lecturer Awards for Excellence in Teaching.
We know it is essential for you to meet new people and develop new skills while you’re studying, so we offer a social calendar every month filed with a variety of events and activities:
- Harmony Day

- Monthly birthdays
- Themed movie nights
- Day trips
- End of session parties

I had a few options in my mind, but I shortlisted Australia because first of all, it’s a beautiful country, and it has a multinational environment. It makes being an international student a lot easier.
