Australia

Australia is one of the most alluring countries in the world, and as such is a focal destination for travelers and students. Natural beauty, magnificent architecture and a hugely diverse array of nature and wildlife. What other country has 40 millions kangaroos, over 100 million sheep and more than 10,000 beaches?

Student studying abroad in Australia, will not only enjoy the vibrant city life, but venture from the urban neighborhoods and you will be met with a wonderfully eclectic mix of environments, from sun-drenched horizons, to the rugged wilderness of the Outback; the majestic underwater world that is the Great Barrier Reef, to the surfers' paradise beaches of the Gold Coast.

You will most likely be based in one of Australia's bustling cosmopolitan cities - often with a beach only a stone's throw of your apartment. The government's relaxed viewpoint on immigration with almost a quarter of the population having been born overseas brings a unique, fascinating, and exciting aura and influence to these cities.

A Western culture has been adopted with regard to the arts and food, although the multicultural populations also have their influence. The laid-back attitude and love of the outdoors could not be seen well than in the vast array of major sporting events passing through the continent each year. Australia most notably hosted the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. The Australian Open (one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments), and the Formula One Australian Grand Prix are annual events, whilst other popular sports include Australian (Aussie rules) football, soccer, and surfing.

The underlying magnetism of this country is that one night you can find yourself strolling round Sydney Harbor, and the next 'crocodile hunting' or lazing on one of the many picturesque beaches the country has to offer. The incredible Blue Mountains are just over an hour from Sydney. Having said this, distances between some places can be huge. Australia is the sixth largest country in the world, spanning three time zones (see below for details on travel). With one of the lowest population densities in the world, it is not hard to escape the hustle and bustle should you need some time out. It is indeed the sheer vastness of the country and the great diversity of different regions that is the foundation to Australia's character.

Education overview:
