The most popular courses amongst Indian students are Business, Information Technology, Engineering, Science and Hospitality. Though enrolments in higher education sector remain high, vocational education sector is becoming popular with the Indian students.

Indian students find it easy to transfer to the Australian education system due to the similarity in our 10+2+3 education structures. Students can choose from a wide variety of Australian universities and education institutions to suit their specific needs and goals. Each higher education institution has its own strengths and areas of specialisation. This provides students with a wide choice of study options and access to the latest research in their chosen field.
