Study Guide to Australia for International Students: Admissions, Eligibility, Cost of Living & Jobs


About the Country

Pre-pandemic numbers say a lot about Australia’s rapid growth in popularity as an international student destination. In fact, in 2019, Australia reported a record high of over 700,000 international students. Like most study abroad destinations, these numbers dipped somewhat over 2020 and 2021. The good news, though, is that from December 2021, Australia is reopening its borders and offering limited travel exemptions to international students. As international travel becomes safer, we are optimistic that incoming student numbers will soon bounce right back up. And to make sure you’re prepared, here’s our complete Student Guide Australia to get you going!
