As one of the world’s most liveable cities, with a high yet affordable standard of living, Perth attracts a growing number of overseas students. There were more than 50,484 international enrolments from over 186 countries in 2015; China led the list with 6,987 enrolments, followed by India 6,139 and Malaysia 3,549.

StudyPerth Australia, a prospective student’s first point of contact for information, works tirelessly in overseas target markets to showcase the benefits of a Western Australian education.

StudyWest has also been prepared by the State Government as a central resource for information about studying and living in Western Australia.

Western Australia’s five universities – the University of Western Australia, Curtin UniversityMurdoch UniversityEdith Cowan University and the University of Notre Dame –include cultures from all over the world, with great diversity among their international students.

Changes have been made to Western Australia’s TAFE system. A network of five TAFE colleges has been established to manage the current 70 campus locations across Perth.

Perth is also the home of many registered English-language colleges that adhere to the National English Language Training Accreditation Scheme. The StudyPerth site lists all schools, colleges, training institutes, flying schools and universities in Western Australia.

International students in Perth require a student visa from the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection. There is a range of visa options for those wishing to study in other areas such as occupational training, professional development, or research.

Once in Western Australia, students are offered an insight into the local culture and lifestyle through experience-based programs offered by non-profit organisations such as the Council for International Students of Western Australia
