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. Continue reading

Australia toughens laws for students

In December, the Australian government tightened legislation regulating the rights of international students in the country. Previously, a person enrolled in an Australian educational institution received a student visa, which allowed him to get a job immediately upon arrival (students are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week during school hours and full-time during the holidays). From now on, a student visa does not mean an automatic right to work. The student must first establish himself well at the place of study and residence – and only then submit an application for work permit to the appropriate authorities. Continue reading
