Study in Australia

Australia’s innovative and advanced education institutions are recognised as world class and in high demand. In 2016 half a million overseas students were studying in Australia.

Australia is proud to be the destination of choice for Indonesian university students studying overseas.  In fact, we host around a quarter of all Indonesian university students studying abroad.

Many Australian cities have direct flights to Indonesia and share a time zone with Indonesia.  But its our popularity with Indonesian students is not just because Australian universities are close to friends and family. 

Indonesian students recognise that Australia’s 41 universities are international leaders in terms of quality, reputation and professionalism.  Seven Australian universities are ranked among the top 100 universities in the world. Our newer institutions have also quickly made their mark.  According to the 2016 Times Higher Education rankings 16 Australian universities are considered among the top 100 universities under 50 years old.

And Australia is affordable compared to the United States and universities in Europe.  Australian universities ranked among the top 100 universities in the world, on average, charge tuition fees which are less than half those of the top universities in the United States. 

Recent data provided by the 2016 Economist Cost of Living Survey indicates Australian cities rank well outside the world’s most expensive cities (i.e. Singapore, Paris, London, New York and Seoul).  And average living costs once students arrive in Australia are lower than those experienced when studying in the UK.
