Australia

Australia is known as the land of Kangaroos has attracted the third largest number of the international students to come and study in Australia. Every year around 400,000 overseas students get educated from Australian universities, colleges and institutes. There are hundreds of reasons behind these supreme figures. However, nature view, beautiful infrastructure and peaceful climate are irrefutable reasons behind its popularity among overseas students. Let’s get more detailed knowledge about the country and their endless opportunities along with incredible beauty.

A natural wonderland of sublime glamour, breathtaking beaches, incredible ancient rock formations, crystal blue waters and pristine rainforests, Australia is the sixth-largest country in the world with the lowest population density per square kilometer. The majority of the Australian flora and fauna could not be found in other parts of the world and their lifestyle is one-of-its-kinds. The capital of Australia is Canberra which is another beautiful state of the country.


 

Australian Capital Territory: The youngest of Australia States and Territory legislatures is the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), Territory and not a State. It is the home of Canberra, the Australian Capital.


 

Northern Territory: The Northern Territory, Territory and not a State, has Darwin as its Capital. It is highly celebrated for Uluru, earlier popular as the Ayres Rock. This ancient monolith is purely spellbinding and a treat to the human senses. It captures the imagination and leaves the visitors mesmerized; that too with a deep sense of wonder they hardly experienced ever.


 

New South Wales: Recognized as the home to Sydney, New South Wales is one of the most charming and delightful state in the world. The boundaries of the state span from the sub-tropical northern border with Queensland to the extra moderate Victorian border.


 

Queensland: Queensland is bisected by the Tropic of Capricorn, and is rightly known as the Sunshine State of Australia. The Capital of Queensland, Brisbane, is one of the fastest emerging cities in Australia and it provides an exceptional dais for touring the Gold Coast, popularly known as Australia’s Playground, and the Sunshine Coast which is famous for its surfing beaches, rainforests and elegant resorts like Noosa.


 

South Australia: South Australia is overwhelmed with adorable attractions to allure the visitors. Adelaide, the state capital of South Australia which is renowned as the City of Churches, is a lovely small paradise and is perhaps quainter than any other mainland capital.


 

Tasmania: Tasmania, the Apple Isle, showcase glorious lakes, majestic mountains, rivers, beaches, waterfalls, and much more. It makes a strong statement about how effortless it is to go across the whole island in just a matter of few days. Historic settlements of the quaint stone cottages that have been transformed into comfy and cherished accommodation dot the landscape.

Victoria: Victoria is Australia’s smallest and the most densely populated state with Melbourne as its Capital. Melbourne, dominated by trams, is a fine medley of old European sophistication and the trends of the modern world. This small State, tenderly known as the Garden State, reaps a strong advantage from its comprehensive road network and is therefore great for a touring holiday.


 

Western Australia: Western Australia is the largest of all Australian states. Perth, the City of Lights, is the Capital and the largest city in Western Australia. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate all-year-round, and is surrounded by gorgeous gardens and reserves which are in deep contrast with the Outback terrain lying beyond them

Australia has the highest minimum wage of all developed nations. The Australian gross wage per hour is AU$ 18 on average, and as a student you cannot work for more than 40 hours every two weeks during your study period. But International students can work full time during their study holidays. You will get your wage weekly (every week), or once in 2 weeks (fortnightly). But Holders of a Postgraduate Research visa who have started their course have unrestricted permission to work that means they can work full time. Your employer has to pay tax and superannuation on behalf of you. You can ask for your money from tax every end of financial year (July) and from superannuation fund after you have already left Australia. During weekends and holidays wages are usually higher than on working days. The calculation is on average your regular wage multiplies by 1.5 for weekends and multiplies by 2.5 for public holidays). This rule is not generally applicable for all employers.

The average wage in Australia can vary according to:

    • The place where you apply for a job (in big cities and city centers you can usually have higher wages).
    • The period of the year when you apply for a job (during holiday season you have a bigger change to get a better paid job).
    • Your personal experience, education etc.

 

Family members (spouses) accompanying the international student under their student visa have rights to work 40 hours per week (full time).

Before you can begin working you will need an Australian tax file number. A tax file number (TFN) is a unique number issued to individuals to help the Australian Tax Office (ATO) administer tax and other government systems.

All international students are required to have Overseas Student Health Cover for the duration of their studies in Australia which provides medical and hospital insurance.This can be arranged by the Admissions Office on your behalf. You can nominate the type of cover you require in your acceptance form.

The cost of OSHC differs depending on the type of cover required. The average cost of minimum cover is AUD$500 for 12 months of singles cover, $2,600 for 12 months of couples cover and $4,200 for 12 months of family cover (as at June 2016). You can have your OSHC organised for you by your educational institution or purchase it online through the OSHC provider’s website. You may choose to take out OSHC with your institution’s recommended provider or with another provider. You should speak to the various OSHC providers before taking out cover to ensure that the level of cover you have chosen meets your needs. You may wish to compare policies from different OSHC providers to ensure you receive the highest benefits for the lowest cost. OSHC allows international students to access health care without experiencing financial hardship.

If you are studying at more than one educational provider and both are arranging OSHC, you will have to ensure that there is no gap between policies. This means that as one policy expires the next commences immediately. You must obtain OSHC for the proposed duration of your student visa and renew your OSHC if you extend the length of your visa.

Most applicants for visa to Australia need to meet Australia's health requirement in order to be granted a visa. You might be required to complete immigration health examinations in order to show that you meet Australia's health requirement.
