Australia has become the most favored study destination of the Bhutanese. One will easily understand why as explained below.
Diversity of Study Options
With over 1200 institutions and 22000 courses to choose from, you are sure to find your course of interest in one of the institutes.
Recognition of Qualification
Australian qualifications are widely accepted and recognized globally. This means the qualification has better international acceptance and can be used to further your career in countries other than your home country.
International Student Support
International students are protected and supported through various legislative and regulatory instruments such as the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000 and National Code of Practice. The quality assurance of Australian Education system is regulated by Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).
The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) ensures nationally consistent across all states.
Work while Study
The international student visa condition allows international students on student visa (subclass 500) to work upto 40 hours a fortnight. This is a wonderful way for students to gain work experience in a highly developed country and a means to meet some of the living cost (however students are not to rely on such earnings to pay for their studies in Australia).
Proximity to Home
For the Bhutanese, Australia can be reached within 24 hours via a connecting flight from Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
