There are 39 universities in Australia with campuses spread out across the country — which is the right university for you?
With universities varying from government to private to Catholic, the options available to students is extensive. Balancing factors like teaching quality, costs, location, facilities and study modes are all crucial in deciding which university is best suited for you.
Different universities have varying strengths, whether it be for research, fields of study or industry connections. Therefore, it becomes increasingly important to make sure the universities you're applying to meet you interests, needs and study requirements.
Deciding on what level of study you wish to undertake is another factor for consideration. Though universities primarily offer higher education qualifications, such as bachelor degrees, postgraduate certificates, postgraduate degrees, masters degrees and doctoral degrees, they also offer lower-level qualifications. These include associate degrees, diplomas and advanced diplomas, which can often be an excellent pathway option into a degree, or as stand alone qualifications. Certain universities also have TAFE departments, which offer Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications.
