Australia is a developed country in the world. Its economy is very sound with full of untapped resources. Australians are mainly made up of migrants from all parts of the world. At present it has an ageing population due to defects in the migration policy that successive governments adopted and efforts are afoot to rectify this and attract many educated young people with good work experience. Systems are being also developed to put in place facilities for international students in Australia to gain work experience and join the workforce.
Australia needs more migrants. One source to get young educated youth is through those studying in Australia as full fee paying students at tertiary level. Though studies and migration are not firmly linked for students keen to obtain an internationally recognised degree and top it up with work experience in a developed country, this is the best opportunity. Australia is still one of the few countries that encourage skilled migration.
There are 37 universities in Australia. All of them are regularly subjected to various quality and standards audits by authorities to ensure that standards are maintained and course contents are regularly updated. Some of the top universities of these 37 are ranked well internationally too. Thus those who wish to pursue tertiary studies overseas should certainly look at the choices available in Australia if they wish to pursue an overseas career after studies.
