How to Choose Where to Study in Australia


Australia is a diverse and huge country – aside from the beauty of the Australian outback and wildlife, it boasts of diverse culture and a world-class education system. In this article, we will discuss how you should decide where to study in Australia.


Australia is a regional power and has a world-class education system with a rich culture and one of the largest expatriate populations among the western countries. There are world-class universities in Australia, which consistently rank in the top 30 by various global ranking systems, such as the QS world ranking.

They gave the Australian National University a rank of 27 in their 2022 edition. It shows the quality of education that Australia can provide for its students. They can help you kickstart your academic dreams and live out that vision with eyes wide open. 

So before pinpointing a particular place to study in Australia, you should always consider these pointers:

1. Research about different locations

Every place in Australia has something unique to offer! No doubt each of them belong to the same country but each institution and place is different in terms of climate, population, etc. So research about each place in depth and see what it has to offer and whether it suits you based on the climatic condition, food and much more!

Moreover, do check out the expat population of the area if you want to feel like you got back home once in a while! If you feel like you need a quiet place to study, then definitely go for small cities, which inherently have small populations.

2. Cost of Living

Cost of living differs significantly in Australia based on city to city. The cost of city living in Perth is twenty percent lower than that of living in Sydney. On the contrary, working and studying in bigger cities gives you an unsaid advantage – network opportunities and greater career options.

Paying extra and living in a bigger city would help you tap into a wider job market. So, though the cost is more but with ample opportunities you would be able to offset some burden with higher wages. Studying in bigger cities is also very elusive for international students because it gives them a sense of belonging to their dream city. Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane are one of the top cities to live in Australia.

3. Climate of different regions

Climate is a very important factor when you are deciding to study anywhere in Australia. It is to note that every place has some different type of climate to offer. So, in the north near the city of Darwin there is a wet and dry climate. Residents enjoy a warm climate in the winter months of June and July.

If we go to the northeast, near to lush green forests of Queensland, we have the great barrier reef, vibrant cities, and eight to nine hours of sunlight, through which it earned its nickname, “Sunshine State.” This region is slightly warmer than the northern region. 

Then there is the vast “Australian Outback”, which spans through the heartland of Australia and has a different season climate! All the cities of Australia are located in the coastal regions hosting large and diverse populations. 

Southern Australia has a Mediterranean climate and produces a large amount of vine and is home to a number of vineyards.

So, Australian cities have a diverse range of climates and you can choose whichever city you need and all the major cities in these regions have good universities.

Choose wisely where you need to study!
