Study in Australia

John Curtin Medical Research Centre at the ANU

Australia is a global education leader with some of the world’s best facilities and educators, providing local and international students with a range of quality study options.

It’s also a fantastic place to live and explore. Our people are friendly. Crime and political unrest are comparatively low compared to almost anywhere else in the world. And our educational institutions have fostered the careers of Nobel Prize laureates and amazing discoveries and inventions including penicillin, IVF, ultrasound and Wi-Fi.

It’s no surprise then, that Australia has the third highest number of international students in the world, despite having a population of just 23 million.
