Australia is one of the most popular designations for learning English: about 200,000 foreign students study in Australia every year. This is a multinational country with an advanced infrastructure and high educational standards recognized worldwide. The Australian education system is known for its unique approach that encourages creative, modern, and independent thinking. The cost of studying in Australia is cheaper than that in the UK and the USA. The houses are usually bigger than those host families would offer in the UK or Ireland, while the quality of accommodation is equal. In order to cover their living expenses, the students have a chance to combine studying with working.

The weather in Australia is warm and sunny throughout the year, the hottest season being September through February. The people are friendly, hospitable, and easygoing, with a more outdoor lifestyle than in most other English-speaking countries. Australia has many parks and beaches, so you will have a great opportunity to combine studying with leisure time in the open air. You can even go surfing or rafting if you like! On top of all this, there is also a large backpacking culture in Australia: students from the UK, the USA, Canada, and Ireland come to this warm country inbetween their study courses, so you won’t have problems finding friends that share similar interests.

If you would like to see more of the Australian continent with its unique nature and animals, be prepared for expensive air flights because the distances between the cities are quite large. In addition, please remember that December through February are the months with the highest temperature and humidity. Some people may find this season uncomfortable. If you don’t tolerate high temperatures and high levels of humidity very well, you had better refrain from studying in Australia during these months.
