Why study in Australia?

Why study in Australia?
Hi guys and girls,
For all of you who are looking forward to pursuing your post graduation or Ph.D in Australia, here is all that you wanted to know. I have been trying to collect information about Education in Australia, the job opportunities there and the student benefit programmes available for the past three months. I have elucidated the results of my sojourn below. I hope it will be useful to all of you .

Australia provides a unique kind of education and a learning style that encourages you to be innovative, creative and think independently. Australia attracts the third largest number of international students in the English-speaking world after the USA and UK. In some countries Australia is the students' first choice study destination.

Australia offers an education experience that makes a real difference. Graduates from Australia are very successful in finding jobs and hold prominent positions worldwide. Additionally, they are readily accepted for postgraduate study at leading international universities.
Australia is a dynamic, vibrant country and its people are energetic, friendly and confident. Multicultural Australia is a safe, friendly, sophisticated and harmonious society in which students can learn and travel in an English speaking country.

Australia also offers excellent value for money and a standard of living which is among the highest in the world. Living expenses and tuition costs in Australia are considerably less expensive than the UK and USA.
Australian universities are widely recognised for excellence in many disciplines. Institutions deliver practical and career-orientated training so graduates can be confident they have the skills demanded by employers.
Australian school students score highly in international competitions, such as the OECD PISA reading, scientific and mathematical literary scales and outperform other English speaking countries in the key areas of science and mathematics.

Australian education and training institutions are leading the world in the development of technology-based learning. For example our English language colleges have video and library facilities, computer-assisted learning facilities and language laboratories for teaching English.
Australia has a reputation for adopting new technologies at a faster rate than in most other countries and enters the new millennium with one of the highest rates of Internet access in the world. Facilities for teaching, training and research are world-class in terms of state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, outstanding libraries and modern technology.
School studies cover a range of academic disciplines and vocational courses which prepare you for university entry, for further training programs or to enter the workforce. The study format is a mix of directed classroom studies, extensive written assessments, formal examinations and may include common assessment tasks. Depending on course alternatives, you might also apply skills, demonstrate understandings, and undertake performance, project, group and field-work activities.
Hope the information that I have provided comes useful to you in discerning your career.
