- You Need A Visa
To study in Australia for more than 3 months you will need a visa. Applying is fairly easy and can be completed online. If approved, your visa will be virtually linked to your passport which means there’s no long lines or sitting around waiting for mail to arrive.
- You May Need Health Insurance
Before studying in Australia, it is important to check whether you will have any coverage for any medical or health issues that may arise during your time here. The Australian government requires that all international students obtain Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). There are many OSHC plans available from a wide range of providers so be sure to shop around to find the best coverage for your personal situation.
- Make Sure You Have Some Money Saved
Australia is a very large place with a lot of amazing sights to see and experiences to be had including the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, The Outback, the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge and our amazing Theme Parks like Warner Brothers Movie World, Sea World and Dreamworld on the Gold Coast. If you plan on travelling around during your free time you will want to have some savings put aside to be able to enjoy all that Australia has to offer.
- You May Be Able To Work While You’re Here
The typical student visa in Australia will allow you to work up to a certain number of hours per week if you wish to. Considering Australia has quite a high minimum wage, it may be worth your time to earn some extra money and it can be a great way to meet people in your new city.
- Not Every Australian Is A Crocodile Hunter (Or A Hemsworth)
Despite what television may have you believe, don’t expect to see everyone dressed in safari gear and wrangling crocodiles or snakes. Modern Australian’s are extremely hardworking, social, and diverse. We flourish on our laid-back culture and live for the weekends where we can unwind and socialise with friends and family, and of course, eat some great food – something in which we are plentiful! Speaking of food…
