Good day, mate! (As we greet in Australia!)
While I am heading to Australia in pursuit of PhD in Neuromedicines.
I wish to elaborate why I chose to Study in Australia as my Graduate research destination?
Simply, because it gives best research experience, world recognized university reputation, highly advanced laboratories, a good PhD completion ratio (this is tempting !) and of course, multi-cultural truly international experience and very generous scholarships (tax-free, unlike many other countries!)
For the last ten years, international graduate students have been attracted to Australia and New Zealand, benefiting from their high quality universities and colleges and exciting and modern cultures.
In more recent years, however, the countries that go to make up the Pacific Rim have also begun to attract students from different regions, drawn by the reputations of their universities, the value for money offered by their graduate programs and the excitement of the local cultures of these new international student destinations.
Global recognizable and well structured degrees make students from all over globe (majorly Europe and Canada and Asian countries) to choose Singapore as viable option along side Australia and New Zealand!
Why Study in Australia
- Natural Attraction
- University Life
- Scholarships and Economy
A Natural Attraction
The nature and character of the region for international graduate students is one of its most attractive qualities.
Long regarded as natural paradises by visitors, Australia and New Zealand continue to attract those students interested in an outdoor lifestyle featuring a relaxed and informal nature.
Culturally, Asia is similarly diverse, offering international students a fascinating and often surprising study and life experience. For those looking for a big city university experience, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Shanghai and Bangkok all boast well-regarded graduate schools in locations often regarded as dynamic hubs of regional tourism.
Asian and Australasian institutions also offer international graduate students a university experience that is different from other regions in the number of international providers of education active in the region.
Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore all offer international campuses and international qualifications delivered locally but designed by other international universities and education providers.
Singapore has now been regarded as a center for this kind of international graduate education for more than ten years, with more than 70,000 non-Singaporean students registered at universities in the country, many of which offer graduate degrees accredited by internationally based institutions.
The region as a whole is considered more seriously than ever before by many of the best international graduate students because of a unique combination of good quality academic programs, interesting local cultures and excellent value for money.
Cost and Economy
Programs taught to international standards in Australasia, for example, are often a fraction of the price of similar degrees available in Europe and North America.
Coupled with this, the rapid economic growth of the region over the last two decades or so has created a high demand for skilled migrants to enable many of these countries to compete on the world’s stage.
Favorable conditions exist for international students graduating from local universities intending to settle and contribute to the local economy.
For many years, Singapore alongside Australia has targeted such graduate students and encouraged them to work after graduation through innovative scholarship and loan schemes for the best candidates.
If you are looking for a less traditional destination for your Masters or research degree, consider one of the universities located in Australasia.
With well-established systems of university education, tightly governed quality control and a wonderfully diverse cultural experience you are sure to find a program and a university that is ideal for your own unique ambitions with very generous scholarship options!
Any queries on Australasia as study destination will be anticipated by me with smiles!!
I will be putting country specific and university specific details soon on upcoming posts!
