We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Australia's enviable climate, stunning geography and unique wildlife have made it a popular tourist destination, but did you know that the country is also a major global research and education hub? A Masters in Australia offers the chance to study in beautiful surroundings at some of the world's best universities.
Australian Masters programmes are modelled on the UK degree format, making them internationally recognised and easily compatible with other qualifications. At the same time, Australia offers academic opportunities that simply aren't available in other higher education systems.
Whether you want to study marine biology on the Great Barrier Reef or train in sports science in one of the world's top sporting nations, you'll find some excellent postgraduate opportunities at Australian universities.
And, of course, you'll have plenty to keep you occupied during your leisure time - whether that means exploring the outback or taking in some of the events and entertainments that make Australian cities vibrant cultural centres.
Over 290,000 international students study in Australia, making it the world's fourth most popular study abroad destination.
Australian Masters degrees usually take between one and two years. Taught programmes are shorter, averaging around 18 months; research-based or professional programmes may take longer.
International students pay slightly more for Masters programmes than domestic students. Typical fees are between AUD $20,000 and AUD $37,000 (USD $12,675-29,000), though some courses can be more expensive.
Yes, all Australian university programmes are taught in English. Language training and support will usually be available for students speaking English as a second language, but a basic level of proficiency will usually be required in order to enrol on an Australian Masters degree.
You will need a visa to study abroad in Australia, unless you are an Australian national (or a citizen of New Zealand). Two types of Australian student visa are available for Masters degrees. The sub-type 573 visa is required for taught programs; the sub-type 574 visa is required for research programs.
