Advance Australia fair, as the nat­ional anthem goes. It’s the name of both a country and a continent—though the latter also includes the island of New Guinea. More and more Indian students have been ­applying to Australian universities of late. The country has 43 universities, which ­offer four-year-long bachelor’s degrees and two-year master’s degrees. Graduates who have completed a degree in Australia that’s at least two years long are eligible to stay back for a further 18 months, during which time they must find a job.

The cost of studying in Australia can range between 11,000 and 71,000 Australian dollars, not including the cost of living—which can be rather high in cities like Melbourne. Another key thing to note is that the country is in the southern hemisphere, which means that the seasons are reversed: the summer months are November–February. As a result of this, course start dates differ from those in other countries. Degrees can commence in February, July—the main intake—or September/November. Each university has its own start dates and application deadlines, which means that students will need to make a note of each one separately.

In terms of studying business, Australia is different from a lot of countries in that:

  • They require at least five years of work experience after graduation to enrol on an MBA programme
  • Three of those five years must have been at a managerial level
  • They do offer a master’s in business/master’s in management program to candidates with less than five years’ work experience—provided they have at least one year of work experience or a business-related degree.
  • There are also MSc degrees in business, but these are highly specialised, and universities will encourage candidates to work towards the master’s in business/management instead.

While Australia is a good place to study, getting a job afterwards can be a difficult prospect, and more so for undergraduates than postgraduates. The job market itself is smaller and there is less exposure, due to the country’s distance from most of the rest of the world. Finally, if you are considering Australia, know that it is an interesting place to live, rich with multiple cuisines and multicultural influences, and with a reputed education system.
