Australian Education System


The Australian education system is broadly divided into:

University

It is the highest level of graduate and postgraduate study in Australia. There are 41 universities in total - 38 public (government funded) and three private. You can study at the undergraduate level (Bachelor Degree) or postgraduate study level in Australia (Graduate Certificate, Diploma, Masters, PhD).

Vocational

These institutions are closely linked with various industries. As a result, the courses are very practical and skill-based. Vocational courses are provided at both the government-funded Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutes as well as private institutions. Many courses provide advanced standing into university degrees.

School

It is compulsory for children aged between 6 and 15, with matriculation exams for university generally taken at 18 years. Australian schools are public (government) or private (religious or independent).

English Language

Courses in English are undertaken for study, travel, immigration or business purposes. There are around 100 private English language centres in Australia. Some top ranking Australian universities and TAFE institutes also offer English language courses.

Australian Academic Year

The Australian academic year begins in early February for school students and late February/early March for vocational and university students. Most schools have three or four semesters. Whereas, universities and vocational institutes have two semesters, with exams at the end of each semester in June and November. There is a two- to four-week break between semesters. The long summer holiday break is from November or December to February.
