Australia boasts to be third largest English speaking destination for international students (the US and UK being the first two). The Australian education system is similar to ours and students can complete Bachelorâ€™s degrees in three years and Masterâ€™s degrees in usually two years. The tuition fees of Australian universities vary from USD $7000 to USD $15000 per annum (some universities may charge higher fees). You can work for 20 hours per week on campus while studying in an Australian institution. Even though you do not get permission for a year of work after you graduate, you can apply to work in Australia through the skilled migration programme.
For admissions to the Bachelorâ€™s and Masterâ€™s degree programmes students need the IELTS only. Having a SAT or GRE score respectively may not enhance your profile. For MBA programmes students should appear for the GMAT as well as the IELTS.
