In Australia, it’s cheaper
The Australian branch of the Study Group Australia of the largest British educational organization, The British Study Group, accepts international students and schoolchildren from 12 years old on training programs for Australian schools and universities and language courses. The branch includes Bellerbys Academic Colleges (Sydney, Gold Cost), Lorrain Martin Professional Colleges (Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Cost, Cairns), Charles Sturt University and Embassy language centers in all these cities.
Schoolchildren host an international training center in Sydney. In the process of studying, the children adapt to new conditions and bring their English knowledge to a level acceptable for admission to an Australian school (the placement service selects the appropriate one – public or private). An Australian school diploma (accepted at any English-language university) can also be obtained at Bellerbys colleges specializing in teaching foreign students.
For foreigners who have completed school in their home country, Bellerbys colleges offer a one-year pre-university foundation program in science and engineering specialties, business, economics, accounting, finance and law. A certificate of successful completion of this program guarantees admission to Bellerbys partner university – at least in Australia, at least in the UK.
Another way to enter an Australian university is through training. Bellerbys and Lorrain Martin colleges train specialists in business, information technology, tourism, hospitality, design, public relations, child care and so on. With a professional certificate (6-month course) they are accepted to the first year of the university, and with Advanced Diploma (one-year course) – immediately to the second.
Study Group Australia programs are fully compliant with British education standards and are accredited by Australian universities. Moreover, they are 30-40 percent cheaper than similar programs in the UK. In addition, the Australian study visa gives an official right to work up to 20 hours a week. There is a special employment service at colleges that helps those who wish to find a suitable job.
