About us

Study Australia is the Australian Government's official resource for international students.

For more than 20 years, the Study Australia website has been a trusted and official Australian Government source of information for prospective international students, their families and education agents. 
Our website contains practical and reliable information to help you find the information you seek about Australian education, training and research, and to help you make informed decisions about your studies and your future. The site includes information on everything you need to know, from student support programs and destination information, to virtual internships and online networking. 

Following sector and student consultations, recent changes to the home page have resulted in a more centralised approach, with key information on Travel, Visas and Covid-19 gathered together and provided up-front, via the homepage. This section includes vaccine information, ‘student returns’ plans, answers to the most frequently asked visa questions and links to Covid-19 student support services.

New Study Australia website features also include:
Student and alumni stories, so that you can hear directly from current and former students about their experience studying with Australia 
A new Study Australia Masterclass Library, providing you with free classes by internationally-renowned academics on global issues such as Space Exploration, Climate, Health and Industry 5.0
Our new Course Search tool, accessible via the homepage, enabling you to search the full range of Study Australia options available nearby and online, with the opportunity to transfer to on-campus programs in Australia, and
Our new Study Australia Employability Hub, featuring free micro-credentials in job-readiness (including entrepreneurship) and academic preparation, with Career and Course Matcher tools also soon to arrive.

We work closely with all Australian Government departments and agencies including the Department of Health, Department of Home Affairs and the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, to bring you the most current information and advice. We continue to make improvements to our website, and warmly welcome any feedback and suggestions from our global Study Australia community. 

Study Australia Partnership

All Australian state and territory study destinations work in partnership with Austrade and other Australian government agencies to deliver information and services to international students. This marketing alliance is called the Study Australia Partnership. We are working together to improve coordination of key information for students and agents.

The Study Australia website is just one way we are collaborating. Study Australia partners deliver important services, localised to the needs of their student communities and integrated with other business and community services. Visit each of our partners via the links below.

Over many decades, Australia has hosted hundreds of thousands of international students from almost every nation, and at every level: in schools, in vocational education and training, at undergraduate and postgraduate level at universities, and in advanced research.

Every year, the government conducts extensive research to discover exactly what international students want from their Australian study experience. More than 100,000 international students have already shared their opinions. These research findings are used to update and improve every aspect of what we offer, so that the quality of the experience continues to be among the very best in the world.

This site is managed by Austrade - the Australian Trade and Investment Commission - and contains links to other official Federal and State Government departments and authorities. You can be confident that the information presented on these pages comes from certified, impartial and reliable sources.
