Under this, Australian Universities offer Bachelor degrees, Master's degrees, Doctorate, Postgraduate certificates, and Postgraduate Diplomas that are recognized throughout the world.


Australia has laws and services to make sure international students receive high-quality education and are treated fairly.

  1. Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA)(http s:// /) is a national regulatory and quality agency for higher education . It was established by the Australian Government to monitor quality, and regulate university and non-university higher education providers against a set of standards developed by the independent Higher Education Standards Panel.
  2.  Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) (www .asqa. is a regulating body for VET education which ensures the quality of vocational education and training and the delivery providers.
  3. Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) protects the following student rights:

    i.The well-being of all international students. ii.The quality of students' education experience.

    iii.The provision of up-to-date and accurate information.

  4. Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) ( is a student survey making it possible to compare higher education institutions and study areas, based on the results of thousands of surveys completed by current and former domestic and international    students.    The Compared    website (www. uses QILT survey responses allowing exploring and comparing the experiences of 2 million students and graduates of different institutions and study areas.

The Australian Education system provides primary, secondary, and tertiary education. Tertiary education includes higher education (including Universities) and Vocational Education and Training (VET).

Vocational Education And Training (VET) :

Australia offers a wide variety of Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses.They are offered through TAFE, Registered Training Organizations (RTOs), or some Universities . It is a means of training and qualifying for a highly skilled job in business, the arts, or industry, or as an alternative pathway into university degree studies.The course duration is usually 2 to 2.5 years.The VET qualifications can include:

  1. Certificate level courses (6 months to 2 years)
  2. Diploma (1- 2 years)
  3. Advanced Diploma (1.5 - 2 years)

How is VET different from Higher Education?

VET is different from the Bachelor program due to the time duration and the practical and skills-based approach to education. Traditionally, VET courses are known to focus more on providing practical and work-orientated occupational skills, whereas university or higher education courses are better known for focusing on providing theory-based knowledge and professional career paths.

Benefits of VET:

  1. Gain quality training and work-based skills
  2. Learn with industry trained experts
  3. Easier entry requirements
  4. Low tuition fee
  5. Hands-on skills and more based on the practical approach of learning
  6. Nationally recognized qualification
  7. Easy employability (79.8% of VET graduates were employed aftertraining)


Higher education courses can be taken to earn an advanced degree and continue your studies in Australia. There are three main types of higher education which lead to Bachelor, Master and Doctoral Degrees.

In Australia it is quite common for students to enroll in a double or combined Bachelor Degree program which leads to the award of two Bachelor Degrees. Double master is also a common practice. This is most common in the fields of arts, commerce, law and science.

Australian institutions offer a wide range of courses – from science to management and commerce, humanities to engineering, and law to health sciences. Australian institutions rank among the world?s best by discipline, particularly in engineering and technology, medicine, environmental science, and accounting and finance.

There are 43 universities in Australia (40 Australian universities, two international universities, and one private specialty university).

Bachelor degree (3 to 5 years)

A Bachelor Degree is the basic qualification for entry to a field. It provides a systematic body of knowledge, the underlying principles, and the problem-solving techniques to work in a discipline.

Bachelor Degree(Honors) (4 years)

This is an additional year of study to enable students to graduate with honors if they perform particularly well in their Bachelor studies.

Graduate Certificate (6 months)

It broadens individual skills gained from undergraduate programs and helps develop knowledge in new areas.

Graduate Diploma ( 1 year)

It provides knowledge in a range of contexts to undertake professional or highly skilled work and as a pathway for further learning.

Master Degree(Coursework) (1 to 2 years)

It involves traditional coursework that develops expertise in the field. A Master?s Degree takes either one year after a Bachelor's Degree with honors or two years after a Bachelor's Degree.

Master Degree (Research) (2 years)

It is a course of independent research that will further enhance skills and understanding of the chosen


Pathway programs are a unique concept and an integral part of Australian education system, allowing students the flexibility to study in their desired Australian educational institution, even if they are falling short on entry requirements (academic and English language), or

missing the cut-off for their preferred program by some margin. With multiple intakes, lower entry requirements and smaller class size, it helps in building a foundation for an applicant, allowing them to blend into a degree without any hassle. These programs present an easier way to get enrolled in your desired course and universities making you eligible to pursue the same with ease. In this set up, once you have completed your diploma program, you can start with your second year in a bachelor?s    program        (with        credit exemptions)    via    a    degree    pathway; resulting in completion of your bachelor?s degree in a stipulated time.

Majority pathway programs are run either

by the individual university, or by a closely associated specialist college, and are located on or very near to the host university?s campus.

Because they are so closely affiliated with a particular university, the process of moving from Foundation to a degree is very straightforward and clear-cut. When you apply for a place on Foundation, you also submit an application for the degree. You will receive two offer letters simultaneously (a „packaged offer?). The offer for the degree will state that your place is

conditional upon you achieving a score of xx in the foundation program so you will know – before you start the pathway course – exactly what you need to do in order to progress to your degree.

Receiving a packaged offer also has the advantage of allowing you to apply for just one student visa to cover you for both courses.


Australian Pathway Program Coursework

Pathway program coursework in Australia varies by type. Generally, students choose between either an Australian university foundation program or an English for academic purposes (EAP) program. Both types equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to earn admission to Australian degree programs.

In foundation programs, learners take courses that satisfy the prerequisites for specific degrees. Courses may include accounting, sciences, mathematics, and computing and information systems. EAP programs, meanwhile, focus on language skills, such as academic writing, oral communication, and research


Australian Pathway Program Experience

When taking a pathway program in Australia, international students get a taste of college life before beginning their degrees. These programs operate like traditional higher education programs, with classes running regularly throughout the week, along with some complementary training available online. Learners should expect a minimum of about 20 hours of class time and coursework each week, though requirements can change depending on the student's program and pathway needs. Classes are relatively small, enrolling 10-15 students from various regions around the world.


The intakes to study in Australia are:

  • March
  • July
  • September and November

The major intake is March and July. However some courses are available for September and November as well. The VET providers have more intakes for their programs than the higher education providers and Universities. You should be done with your language and aptitude tests by three months before the deadline. The last three months should be dedicated to filling out the application form properly.


To study in Australia, for admission into any level of programs, English proficiency such as International English Language Testing System (IELTS), Pearson Test of English (PTE A) or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for admission and visa purpose as well. In addition to that, no other formal tests are required.


The general entry requirements:


Percent /GPA




60 or 2.4




60 or 2.8




50 or 2.4




70% in PCL or 60% in year 12 biology



These are minimum requirements, which may differ from university to university.


The cost of education in Australia is affordable compared to the USA or UK. Higher education in Australia is comparatively short and intensive which provides value for the money as well as reduces the living expenses.
