FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD

Australia

Australia offers an amazing combination of the rugged Outback, the urban sophistication of cities like Sydney, and the laid-back nature of its coastal cities. Australia features unusual geological rock formations, unique wildlife, ancient fossils and Aboriginal rock carvings, while the semitropical rainforests and Great Barrier Reef offer enticing possibilities for exploration. Along the coasts, large cities provide plenty of opportunities for culture, sports and entertainment.

You can study at any one of 11 prestigious Australian universities. Consider experiencing the excitement of a large university in one of Australia’s metropolitan areas. Or, if you are looking for more personal attention, consider a smaller university off the beaten path. No matter where you choose to study, this unique country offers an unforgettable experience and excellent academic choices.
