The Australian government has drawn up a framework known as ‘Australian Qualification Framework (AQF)’ to ensure that the quality being offered at the various education levels in the country is maintained. This enables smooth transition for students from one level of education to another, provided the visa requirements are fulfilled. With AQF, your degree is recognised and authorised by the government.
There are 40 government universities and two international universities and one private university to choose from for your bachelor degrees or postgraduate courses. The internationally recognised qualifications and high education standards make Australia a preferable choice for Indian students.
