Studying in another country will provide you with a completely different perception of the world around you, and present you with new and exciting projects.
Australia has one of the best education systems in the world with five universities in Australia in the top 50 Universities worldwide. Thousands of international students decide each semester that Australia is their best option to study. A survey conducted by the University of Canberra revealed that 85% of the international students in Australia would like to transfer their credits and finish their studies in Australia.
As an International student you will have the right to work 20 hours a week, with a minimum wage of $16.88AUD an hour, and the right to work full time in course vacations. Only a select group of countries extends this benefit to international students.
Scholarships in Australia
We are aware that it can be quite expensive to pay for a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree overseas, but the good news is many Australian universities offer scholarships to international students! Furthermore, in some special cases, the universities offer scholarships by degree, academic achievements and even by county.
This is the case with Macquarie University in Sydney.
Macquarie University offers different scholarships with one program based on special agreements with institutions in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, México, Perú and more.
There are different types of scholarships and each of them covers a different percentage of the overall cost of the degree. Some scholarships cover 30% of the cost and others cover 100%. Likewise, some scholarships offer monthly or yearly payments for your living expenses and return trips between your country and Australia.

With this scholarship you would receive annual living expenses of $25,849AUD for each year of your degree. It even covers Insurance and medical expenses! http://goo.gl/MgectQ
