More and more international students are choosing to study in Australia every year and even more are flocking to Melbourne, so we thought we'd compile a list of some of the reasons why. Although we have to admit our Studyco head office is in Melbourne, so we'll try not to be too biased! Here’s our top 5.
It’s the most liveable city on the planet!
Did you know Melbourne has been voted the most liveable city in the world for the 7th year running? That’s the first time a city has ever claimed the top spot for that long. And in case that wasn’t attractive enough for students, just recently, QS Best Student Cities has named Melbourne as the fifth best city for students in the world in 2017.
One of the most culturally diverse student destinations
Melbourne is famous for its thriving multicultural society and this is no different for its student population. Melbourne’s universities reflect this same diversity so expect to meet a broad range of nationalities in your course of choice.
Melbourne’s Universities are among the worlds best
QS World University rankings have 6 of Victorias 10 Universities in the top-ranked universities in the world, with state of the art facilities, prime accommodation options, and picturesque campuses. And the best news is thatStudyco represents all 10 Victorian Universities as well as various TAFES and colleges so if you want to find out more simply click here and we can give you a more detailed look at top institutions like University of Melbourne, Monash University, Deakin University, La Trobe University, RMIT, Swinburne and more.
Study by the beach, in the country or in the city center
We’ve already mentioned how culturally diverse Melbourne is but it also has a wide variety of Universities and Institutions in regional centres just outside of the city. These alternative options allow students to experience a more rural lifestyle with cheaper accommodation as well as multiple transport options for visits to Melbourne or other parts of Victoria and Australia. Not only can we help with finding the right University and location for you but we also arrange student tours where we take students across some of Victoria's most beautiful landscapes including the Great Ocean Road and Dandenong Ranges.
Australia's food capital
Melbourne is, without doubt, Australia’s food capital, as the vibrant mix of nationalities has created a food culture unlike anywhere else in the world. Whether its Lebanese food on Sydney Rd, Vietnamese on Victoria St, Italian on Lygon St, or Greek on Lonsdale St Melbourne is full of areas where each migrant community has built some of Melbourne's most longstanding food institutions. And they’re all just a train-stop away from each other! Keep up to date with our Student-Wiki if you want to see some favorites from the students themselves in following issues.
