Study in Perth

Perth is both the capital and largest city of the state of Western Australia, situated between the Swan River and the southwest coast. The fourth most populous city in Australia, with a population of 2,022,044 people living in Greater Perth, it’s one of the most desirable study destinations in the world, despite the fact it’s more isolated than other Australian cities.

Perth has a large number of universities and is therefore a great student city with a cosmopolitan, friendly vibe, amazing beaches and a mild climate. The five main universities in Perth are Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, University of Notre Dame, and the University of Western Australia. These institutions are all world-class, helping to ensure Perth lives up to its reputation as Australia’s ‘Education City’.

Perth has two main airports. Perth Airport is the main hub for regional, domestic, and international flights, whereas Jandakot Airport is for general aviation and charter flights. Perth Airport is the fourth busiest in Australia, with approximately 10 million passengers travelling through it each year.
