Study in Australia
Education in Australia
The Institutions in Australia for higher education are both government and private. The university or college providing higher education in Australia (also known as tertiary education) is either established by or recognized by the Australian government as a tertiary institution. According to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), the schools providing higher Australian education programs cover Levels 1 through X. The AQF was established in 1995 and it has 10 levels and links school, vocational and university education qualifications into one national system. Through Australian education system, you can easily move from one level of study to the next and from one institution to another after fulfilling student visa requirements. All AQF institutions are Government-authorised and nationally accredited.
Vocational and Technical Schools
The schools under technical and further education (TAFE) and vocational education and training (VET) offer short courses, certificates from level I through IV, diplomas, and advanced diplomas.
Universities and Higher Education
Most Australian universities get their funding from the Australian government and are self-accrediting institutions that run under a legislation (usually at the state or territory level). Australian universities obtain money from the federal government via grants and loans. Australian universities are very well-known as the University of Melbourne and the Australian National University are two of the well-respected universities in the world. You can acquire an undergraduate degree in maximum 3 to 4 years and the postgraduate degree in 1 to 5 years depending upon the coursework.
