STUDY IN AUSTRALIA
Australia has a robust, world class education system with a large range of education options across the Vocational Education and Higher Education sectors. A significant majority of Australian Universities are ranked amongst the Top 400 Universities of the world (Times Higher Education Survey - http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/world-university-rankings/).
The Australian Vocational Education System is regarded as one of the best in the world, with a practical approach to education through competency based training and assessment that equip students with the skills to perform effectively in the workplace.
All University programs that are available to international students must comply with the requirements of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act. This ensures that established standards are met and services are provided to all international students. Furthermore, all education providers are subject to the requirements of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). Further information can be found at www.teqsa.gov.au
. These features provide peace of mind to prospective students knowing that they will obtain a high quality, internationally accepted qualification, while being supported through the process.
The recent introduction of the Streamlined Visa Processing (Knight) reforms has placed more responsibility on the University in determining their chosen students with little interference from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Furthermore, graduates will have the opportunity to apply for Post Study Work rights entitling them to work full time in Australia for up to two years post completion of their qualification. More details can be found at http://www.immi.gov.au/students/knight/faq-post-study-work-arrangements.htm
. These reforms ensure prospective students will gain international work experience, maximize the value of their education qualification and obtain faster visa approvals.
A key feature of the Australian Education system is the ability of students to “Earn while they learn”. Australia is one of the few countries where overseas students are permitted to work up to 40 hours per fortnight during the academic year and full-time during vacations. Masters students and their dependant spouse have unlimited work rights for the duration of the course.
Global Opportunities is happy to provide further details in order to guide and support you and your family in making the right education and career choice.

Australia is a constitutional democracy based on the values of equality, fairness, non discrimination and justice, which is underpinned by a robust parliamentary system. These values define the Australian culture and are the basis for the Australian term “mateship” or “mate” which means camaraderie or friendship.
Australia is a multi-cultural nation that has built a rich fabric of communities living in harmony. Some 47% of the population were born in a different country and this contributes to a high quality of life that is unrivalled by many other developed nations. For example, Melbourne, a large city in the south of Australia, has been voted the “world’s most livable city” four years in a row by The Economist. It is often said that you can visit any part of the world without ever leaving Melbourne.
Australia has rich deposits of natural resources that have created a consistently strong economy. It is a key trading partner with most countries throughout the world. The resources from beneath the ground, as well as above, including the World heritage listed tourist areas of the Daintree rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru, have ensured continued economic growth for the past 20 years. As a result, Australian incomes are amongst the highest of all developed nations as a percentage of GDP and remain one of the few countries to have withstood the global economic meltdown.
A key benefit of living in Australia is the emphasis on a healthy lifestyle and the preservation of environmental assets such as parks, gardens and coastline. These are seen as instrumental in contributing towards safe and peaceful living conditions and creating harmonious societies. Also, the government provides a large array of safeguards for its people including well developed infrastructure, a high value for the rule of law and protection for the disadvantaged such as medical treatment, accommodation and social security. These safeguards ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity and a level playing field to make their mark in Australia.
Australia takes great pride in a high quality education system that is among the top five of the world, yet maintains a population that is a small fraction of other developed nations. The education system ensures a high quality of infrastructure, teaching faculty, course curriculum, and extracurricular facilities at a uniformly high standard across all educational bodies. Of the 41 Universities in Australia, 37 are operated by the government, but all are required to meet exceptionally high standards of academic excellence. The Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector includes 59 TAFE or government colleges throughout Australia, but is also complimented by large array of high quality private sector institutions.

Stories from some of our students..
Anu was 23 years old from Chandigarh and was seeking to undertake a course in Bioinformatics. She went to a number of education fairs and met with a range of education providers. Whilst they gave her the information that she needed, she was still uncomfortable with the process of applying and obtaining a student visa. She met with a member of our team from Chandigarh. She was delighted with the way our staff made her feel at ease with the process and before long she was packing her bags to attend the Masters of Science (Bioinformatics) at the University of South Australia. Congratulations Anu!
Global Opportunities looks forward to see your career progression. If you are like Anu, please feel free to contact Global Opportunities, to receive that the valuable support you need for one of the biggest decisions you could ever make.
Rishabh was 19 years old and has been out of school for 18 months since completing his 12th class. He was told by his friends that he would not be able to study abroad, because he got low marks in 12th, his English was low and has only been working in the family business. He was convinced by a family member to visit the Global Opportunities team in Thane. Whilst, the team in Thane could not secure University admission immediately, but by using the Streamlined Visa Process to package an English course, a Diploma of Commerce and a Bachelors in Business course, Global Opportunities have now made it possible for Rishabh to realize his goals. Well done, Rishabh! .
We look forward to you taking the family business in new and exciting directions. If you are like Rishabh, please feel free to contact Global Opportunities, to receive valuable guidance in mapping a study plan that suits your particular needs.
Gauri was 35 years old and has a well established career as a technology consultant in Bengaluru. However, she felt her career was sliding and that she was not getting the opportunities that she felt she deserved. She opted to meet with the team from Bengaluru. They advised her to consider a Masters in Business Information management and Systems from LaTrobe University. Gauri investigated this and a range of other courses and discovered that this course would help her take the next step in her career. She would not only gain valuable skills, but it was now possible for her to undertake post study work in Australia to further develop these skills experientially. We look forward to whats next for Gauri and wish her every success in her future career endeavours.
