The trust Sri Lankan students have on higher education options leading to permanent settlement in Australia cannot be compared with any other study destination in the world. Since the early nineties, Sri Lankan students have been going to Australia to build their career based on the solid educational foundation received from the Australian tertiary educational establishments. They offer a complete range of study programs leading to open up employment and gain necessary experience required for skilled migration opportunities in Australia.

Whenever the term ‘Australia’ is mentioned, what comes to people’s mind is wide-open spaces, bushes, kangaroos, koalas, and clean air and water. However, Australia has much more things to offer than the beauty of the land. Many Sri Lankan students are choosing to study in Australia because it is safe, friendly, and harmonious in addition to its excellent education system and a high standard of living. The infrastructure is well developed throughout the country and all major cities, regional locations, and country areas are well serviced by up to date public transport systems. Overtime Australia has become a home for over 80,000 Sri Lankans and it has also become the largest Sri Lankan expatriate community.

Diversity of Education
Educational institutions in Australia offer a wide variety of courses and degrees, so Sri Lankan students can easily find the school and field of study that is right for them. The first decision students have to make when choosing a degree program is, which school caters most to their needs and interests. Students can choose between universities and colleges.

The Australian university/college provides the student with sound knowledge in the chosen field, along with the skills required that could directly be applied in the work environment. Moreover, the study experience is not limited to learning the concepts of Science, Engineering, IT, etc. but with a high emphasis on developing students’ skills such as how to think creatively and independently, generally considered as key attributes of an Australian working professional.

If necessary, it is easy for students to move between one qualification level and another and from one institution to another. Also, the students who study in Australia take advantage of the country’s impressive technology and resources, as Australia is known to be at the forefront of new technology and innovations.

Cost of Living
Australia’s standard of living is amongst the highest in the world. Living expenses and tuition costs are considerably lower in Australia than they are in the United States and the United Kingdom. International students are able to work part-time while they study, allowing them to offset some of their living costs. There is also the possibility of scholarships, which helps to lower the cost of studying for international students.

The Australian Student Visa
The Australian student visa has multiple benefits and unique features, aside from allowing the student to study in Australia. Most student visas allow the student to work for up to 40 hours every two weeks during semester times and unrestricted hours during any scheduled course breaks. If a spouse accompanies the student, he or she is allowed to work part-time or full time depending on student’s level of study in the Australian educational institute.

Also, the student may apply for a two-year post-study work visa after completing two years of study at a higher education level with the opportunity of working whole two years full-time in an Australian company; gaining experience working in an Australian environment.
