Many people think Australia is in the best country to live in. We were voted the second "most liveable country" in the world by United Nations in 2010. For those that have been here, it's not hard to see why.
More than 400,000 international students from over 200 different countries study in Australia every year. They come to learn from experienced and motivated teachers who are highly respected experts in their field. They take advantage of highly advanced facilities, modern technology and the latest equipment. And they immerse themselves in the vibrant, young, social culture that is Australia.
Australia is a country that respects cultural and ethnic difference. Over the past 100 years, we have welcomed people from around the world and remained safe and harmonious. International students quickly discover that Australians are naturally friendly, open and genuinely interested in other cultures.
Finding original, practical solutions to problems has long been part of Australia's achievement. Education is central to our status as innovators and inventors.
Your teachers will encourage you to develop an opinion based on knowledge and curiosity. Your classroom will become a safe and supportive environment where you learn how to confidently ask critical questions and express your point of view.
Because of this reputation for independent thought, employers have a high opinion of students who have studied in Australia.
Many other countries turn to Australia for advice on improving their own education systems. Monash College currently licenses its programs to Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Jakarta and China. Most recently we have partnered with Taif University in Saudi Arabia to develop an English Language Centre.
Australia is only ten hours from China, eight hours from Malaysia and ten hours from Sri Lanka by air. Australians love travelling, especially to Asia because it is so close. But wherever you are coming from, you will find many people here who know and love your home country.
