Melbourne has toppled London and Sydney to be named the second-best city in the world in which to be a student, after Paris.
It has well-respected universities, good quality of life, plenty of employment prospects, general affordability and a vibrant student community.
Melbourne’s cafes, music venues, restaurants, good public transport mean that students work and socialise in what really is a world-leading, student experience.
NSW has added almost 25 per cent more jobs than the rest of the nation combined in the past six months, underscoring its status as Australia’s top-performing state economy.
3. New student innovation hub debuts on UNSW campus
The new Michael Crouch Innovation Centre at UNSW has opened to students ahead of its official launch in September.
Unique within an Australian university and open to students from all faculties, the MCIC will provide co-curricular learning programs facilitated by UNSW experts and a network of corporate partners.
The MCIC features a maker workshop with 3D printers, laser cutters and other machining tools, where student teams can design and build prototypes.
4. UNSW Medicine scholarship
Balancing parenthood with academia is set to become easier with a UNSW
Medicine scholarship that helps early career women focus on research when
returning to work after parental leave.
The scholarship – named after NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year Professor Minoti Apte OAM – will provide eligible staff with relief from teaching and administration to write publications, applications and/or access research assistance.
5. Doing business in South Australia (Adelaide) to become cheaper for business migrants
The State Government is making South Australia a better place to do business by providing almost $670 million in tax reductions over the next four years.
By abolishing business stamp duties, the State Government has removed a significant cost to business investment and expansion, making it easier and cheaper for business migrants to set up and expand their own businesses in South Australia.
Thousands of international students intending to study in NSW will receive support on arrival at Sydney Airport with the opening of the International Student Airport Welcome Desk.
Funded by StudyNSW, Destination NSW, and key education partners including the NSW Department of Education, TAFE NSW, English Australia and all NSW universities, the Welcome Desk is also supported by the Council of International Students Australia (CISA). It will be based directly opposite Arrivals Hall A in T1 at Sydney International Airport and staffed by dedicated student volunteers.
The Welcome Desk offers guides and maps together with information on iPads and LCD screens.
