7 Ways Studying in Australia Will Change You Forever

7 Ways Studying in Australia Will Change You Forever main image

Sponsored by Macquarie University, Sydney.

We all know the animals are cute and the people are friendly. But the benefits of studying in Australia are seriously life-changing. Here are seven incredible things you’ll walk away with after your time ‘down under’. 

1) Blue skies ahead

The beautiful natural environment in Australia doesn’t just make it a great place to go to the beach. There’s something about living under blue skies and swimming in clean blue waters that changes your whole perspective on life and makes you feel free. Universities like Macquarie also boast amazing green campuses that feel more like parks. Reading lecture notes sitting on green grass, in the shade of a gum tree? Not a bad way to spend a few years.

2) The most amazing adventures

Although your main focus will be study, Australia also offers you the chance to create some incredible memories (and Instagram posts!) in life-changing places like the Great Barrier Reef, the ‘red center’ of Uluru, and of course the amazing city of Sydney. Your only problem will be trying to find time to travel to all the Australian places you want to see. 

3) Live in the city of your (career) dreams

Apart from consistently ranking among the
top 10 best student cities in the world, and offering amazing weather and lifestyle, Australian cities like Sydney are home to some of the world’s biggest and most innovative companies that are always on the lookout for great graduates. You’ll be in prime position to take your career to new heights.

4) The power to change your path

Australia is a land of personal freedom and equal opportunity. It doesn’t matter what country, culture or religion you come from, or how rich you are. You’ll be free to be yourself, prove what you can do, and take your life where YOU want it to go.

 5) The chance to learn about a new culture… or 100

In today’s globalized business world, having cross-cultural skills will really set you apart. At Australian universities like Macquarie, you’ll be studying with – and learning from – students from more than 100 countries. So you’ll graduate not only with knowledge of Australian culture, but countless others as well – opening up career opportunities in whichever country you have your sights on.

6) Connections that could make you a millionaire

With so many of the country’s universities ranked among the world’s best, it’s no surprise that Australia attracts so many talented students. You’ll be sharing a classroom with some incredible minds, and you might just meet a future business partner who you go on to achieve amazing things with.

Just look at Samuel Yang, dubbed the ‘godfather of solar energy’ by Chinese media. While studying economics at Macquarie University, he met some scientists. Together they founded what is now one of the largest solar energy companies in the world.

7) The confidence to do anything

Studying overseas – particularly in a country as far-flung as Australia – often involves a big step out of your comfort zone, forcing you to learn new skills and become independent. With the student support Australian universities are famous for, you’ll develop emotional intelligence and graduate with a brand new confidence in yourself. Combined with a highly-respected Australian degree, you’ll be able to walk into any room – or job interview – with your head held high.

Study abroad in Sydney at a 5-Star university

Ranked among Australia’s top 10 universities, Macquarie University is located 15 kilometers from Sydney’s city center in one of the largest business and technology precincts in the Southern Hemisphere.  With a 5-star QS rating and global reputation for expertise in areas like business and health and medical sciences, Macquarie produces graduates who are among the most sought-after professionals in the world.

Connect with Macquarie University on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube for news and student stories, or to get in touch.
