Education information

Nowadays, Australia is chosen by many foreign students due to a wide range of high-quality educational services. SMAPSE offers 10 best colleges and schools in Australia where foreign students can get preparation courses that will help to enter prestigious universities in Australia and abroad. Due to the list of TOP-10 colleges and schools in Australia, you will definitely find the most appropriate option. 

Higher Education in Australia

Admission to the University of Australia can be considered the beginning of a successful career, because higher education on the southern continent is one of the best in the world. Universities are funded by the Government: the Ministry of Education annually allocates nearly 3 million Australian dollars to support innovative methods in education. Also, it strictly monitors the level of teaching. As a result, at least 6 Australian universities have been in the list of the TOP-100 in the world for over a decade!

Diplomas of Australian universities are recognized around the world, large corporations are willing to hire young specialists from Australian universities. Already in the second or third year at the university, a student can work professionally - many students combine working with studying.

How to prepare for entering a university in Australia?

So, you decided to enter the university of Australia. How to prepare for exams? To begin with, it is important to determine your level of English proficiency. All Australian universities require certificates for passing the international exam:

  • TOEFL. The minimum passing score is 78. Its validity is 2 years. 
  • IELTS. The minimum score for admission is 6.0. It is also valid for 2 years.
  • CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) is another language certificate that all universities in Australia accept. It is cheaper and valid for a lifetime (unlike TOEFL and EILTS), but not all European countries recognize it. If you plan to stay on the southern continent, then CAE is the best option.

If a certificate is available, it remains to choose a course in other subjects, or to receive it after graduating from school in Australia

Who can enter Australian universities?

To qualify for a student position at a university in Australia, you must meet the following requirements:

  • A diploma of secondary education. In Australia students study for 12 years. So, at the time of admission, an applicant, in addition to a school diploma, must have a certificate of 1 course from university or a certificate of preparatory courses in Australia.
  • A letter of recommendation from the last employer or from a place of study is required. A sample letter can be requested from the selection committee of the university.
  • Motivation letter. It’s not always necessary, but it significantly adds chances to success of admission or gives the opportunity to apply for a free scholarship. A motivation letter is drawn up in free form, where a foreign student tells why he wants to go to university. For example, “I like the living conditions”, “I want to work in a particular specialty”, “Fluently speak English”, etc.

Studying in Australia for free

Every foreign student has the opportunity to study at the University of Australia for free and even receive a scholarship. There is a state program for the best students - Endeavor Scholarships and Fellowships. What is needed for free studying?

  • excellent studying progress, successful completion of each test with the highest scores;
  • a statement in the prescribed form about the applicant's desire to receive a scholarship (usually after the first year of study at the university);
  • winning a competition among student applicants for participation in the program.
