Australia might have problems when it comes to secondary and higher-secondary education to an extent, but Australia flies high when it comes to university level education. Some might even point out that the Australian Government does more for university-level education than it does for school education. The Australian Government regularly involves itself in the betterment of education standards within the country; it set up the AQF to ensure that formal recognition can be achieved for ever legally obtained degree regardless of what you studied as long as you have completed the course and any form of evaluation that it may have contained. The country is among the top 5 happiest in the world, and there are five metropolitans that are included in the list of top 40 cities for infrastructure in the world. Regarding cultural diversity, Australia is among the best places for international students to study in. As of 2012, most overseas students agreed that life and education standards are of exceptional quality in Australia. And to all you naysayers out there who think this was some random survey; this survey was conducted by the Australian Government to assess the standards of experience for international students. Overseas students have more to be excited about as well; there are seven universities featured in the list of top 100 universities in the world and the government along with educational groups is looking into ways of improving that number. If that wasn’t enough, the government along with scholarship bodies raise around USD 200,000,000 in scholarships every year. The Australian visa for students is also one of the strongest in the world that allows for international students to enjoy a number of perks as well as work during the holidays to network and pay-off student loans. The Australian Government has taken a number of efforts to ensure that the overall process has become easy for students, both domestic and foreign. When people talk about countries that have contributed the most to the world in terms of technological development, they may not quickly think of Australia. But the country does not slack off either; the country is the origin point for a number of inventions such as WiFi, bionic ear, black box, among other innovations. The country also has set up a number of funded fellowship programs for students to research and innovate in a number of different sectors. Australia may not seem like your most likely destination, but it should be.

Latest Education News & Updates
Australia’s higher education system is among the finest in the world. It does trail the Ivy leagues and the UK based institutions but besides that Australia does provide some of the best higher education on offer. Australia is also quite diverse and secular and has a lot of its tie-ups and MOUs in the Asia-Pacific region. Due to its penchant for innovation and its geographical location, Australian higher education is in safe hands, but the problem arises when we start looking at the schooling that is available in Australia. Australia is finding it difficult to promote proper grass-root education that is resulting in a lot of people failing to complete 12th grade. The children instead of preferring to move to college; they end up taking jobs at a very young age. People might even argue that the best minds go on to college, but the truth of the matter is that any country would want its children to be educated at least with an undergraduate degree. The biggest issue that is preventing the development of the Australian Education sector is the presence of an out-dated system that was supposed to be advanced and upgraded, but in reality, the same problems that were brought up ten years by experts are still plaguing the system now. Among the most primary problems that need to be addressed are sectional intolerance, elitism and standards of teaching professionals. Among these three issues, elitism has been identified has a societal issue that needs to be overcome quickly for young Australians to not be affected in the years to come. Australia is a relatively developed nation when compared to most countries, but the fact that such an issue plagues the society shows that the reforms put forth by the Australian Government haven’t yielded the results that they had hoped. Reforms that are put forth from now needs to address the problem of elitism, and the only way to tackle it is to sensitise children from a young age; this is one of the most important reasons why experts believe that a revamp needs to occur at the grass-root level. The other key issue that needs to be overcome is the level of standards when it comes to professionals, teachers and administrators when it comes to the educational sector. For the time being Australia is facing a lack of proper standards and this is greatly affecting the other issues as well. Even if the government comes out with great solutions, it won’t matter unless they are executed accordingly. The gap between what needs to be done and what is done is bringing down the educational sector greatly.
