Australia is known to provide with one of the best education systems in the world. It is also a very friendly place for children to live and grow. Almost 80% of the children in Australia finish higher education.
It has to be remembered that education in Australia can turn out to be quite different from that of your native country. Also, it varies for each state but all children must attend school till the age of 15.
Ideally, the academic year starts in February. Each year has four terms or semesters. The classes are divided into pre – school for the age group of 4 to 6 years; primary school for 6 to 12 years and high school for 13 to 18 years. The schooling ends with a Higher School Certificate (HSC) for different subjects. However, English is a mandatory subject.
For immigrant children, the education is paid. They could be easily enrolled in a local school with the help of their visa, birth certificate and passport as a proof of their identification.
For higher education, one must apply to the University Admission Index (UAI). In addition, the candidate must have relevant qualifications in the required subjects for their particular study program. A number is allocated to each student based on their academic qualifications and other achievements. Based on this ranking, a candidate would be granted an admission to the course of his choice.
