Education System
Australia’s system of education is of the highest standard and enjoys international renown. Our schools develop students’ skills and confidence; Australian university graduates excel at the cutting edge of research and innovation; and vocational and technical education drives our thriving industrial sector. Australia is widely recognised as a world leader in the field of international education and English language training.

After completing final year (Year-12) of secondary school, students head for their higher (Tertiary) education that awards degree for Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral studies. Mostly students from overseas come for education at this level. Tertiary education in Australia is administered by the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF), which aspires to integrate both vocational and higher education into a solitary classification of tertiary education.

For undergraduate degree, one can either enroll for a two-year Associate degree like Associate of Science (A.S.) or a four-year degree like Bachelor of Science (B.S.).

Achieving a Bachelor’s Degree takes 3 to 4 years. To complete a Masters Degree it takes 1 to 2 years. The Masters Degree follows after the Bachelors degree. It deals with a more advanced subject than a Bachelors degree and either includes research, coursework, or a mixture of the two. After having completed the Masters Degree, one is qualified for taking a PhD program.
