Studying abroad in Australia has a lot more to offer than sun, sea and sand. With world-class research centres and internationally ranked universities, the country is also a vibrant hub for research and scholarship.
Australian universities carry out pioneering work in ecology, renewable energy, antibiotic therapy and more. So, whether you want to study marsupials or medicine, Australia is a place where your PhD could really make a difference. And you can still go surfing too!
Why study a PhD in Australia?
Internationally renowned research – 15 of Australia's world leading universities rank in the global top 250.
Generous funding options – It's unlikely you'll have to pay for your entire PhD out of your own pocket. Many PhD scholarships and other funding opportunities are available from universities and the Australian Government.
Unique PhD opportunities – From Marine Biology at the Great Barrier Reef to Anthropology at Uluru, some doctoral research can only be completed in Australia.
Generous post-study visas – Australia values its PhD graduates. Your doctorate could allow you to live and work in the country for at least four years.
No viva – Not keen on the thought of defending your thesis during an oral exam? It's quite common for Australian doctorates to be assessed without the traditional PhD viva voce.
