In order to truly fully experience studying abroad in Australia, make sure you take some time to travel it! Don’t find yourself cooped up in the city for your entire stay. Take a trip on the coastal route from Sydney to Cairns, hike Sydney Harbour’s coastal walks or drive the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Adelaide. Find new places, meet new people and soak up the wonderful scenery Australia has to offer. Don’t forget to experience the scenery as well. Australian landscapes are so diverse- from Red Centre to Western Australia’s Ningaloo Reef and the snow-capped Australian Alps.

Don’t forget to properly sort out your visas. There are a few different kinds to choose from, and depending on your agenda while studying abroad in Australia, you may need a specific one. For studying abroad specifically you’ll need to apply for a student visa through the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC)- as long as your course is registered on a full-time basis you shouldn’t have any issues. For courses less than three months, you’ll want to enroll on a Working Holiday Visa. With a student visa you’ll have access to Australia’s subsidized student health coverage and can apply for permission to work part-time. With so many courses and its international reputation for academic excellence, Australia is surely the place to study.
