Education System in the Australia
Studying in Australia may be different to what most students find at home, Australian education providers focus a lot not only on class room work but a lot on practical work as well as work experience. This helps to make sure students have the most education and experience possible before entering their chosen work force.
The Education for Overseas Students organisation provides legislation to ensure international students are protected and that all courses being offered and undertaken are quality, accredited courses that are being offered to local students as well. All courses are meet national standards. If a student and the EOS finds a course or provider to be dropping its standards or to have given misleading details the student will be refunded in full and a more appropriate course will be offered with another institute.
All educational providers offer student support services, these services help students through their courses. Many institutes have international student counselors who help to ensure the student is settled and does not need any extra help. Student services work towards making courses and institutes better for the students, they do this by organising orientation days, helping with academic advise, further study options and helping organise accommodation for international students.
