Australia offers a very unique blend of high-quality, affordable education in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment. Over the years, it has become a very popular destination for international students because of its friendly, inclusive culture and high-quality education standards. For a relatively young country with a small population of only 25 million, it has already produced 15 Nobel Prize laureates to date. It is ranked as the 3rd most popular student destination globally, having produced 2.5 million international alumni who are now working around the world, based on figures released by the Department of Foreign Affairs. Global companies like Google, Amazon, Alibaba, Facebook, Eventbrite and Thales have significant operations in major Australian cities.
Australia also has six of the world’s 50 best student cities – Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Adelaide – with the best living conditions, and Strathfield College is right smack in the cities where the most significant developments take place academically, culturally and socially as it fulfills its commitment to integrate a fun culture into the nurturing of young minds. The College has established campuses in 2006 in Sydney and 2016 in Melbourne. Both cities boast of a number of popular cafes, shopping centres, art galleries, and sports arenas for a multicultural population.
Known for its cultural diversity in terms of international student mix, Australia also offers an incredible mixture of European, Asian and other Western cultures that provide a great platform for international students to prepare for their future careers. International students are given the option to work part-time while pursuing a degree.
Aside from having the most number of the world’s best student cities, Australia has consistently joined the ranks of the world’s top countries for quality of life, traveling alone, raising kids, green living, retirement, doing business, medical research, and building a career, among others.
