Australia is a leading global education powerhouse.

After moving to Australia, you may seek education services for yourself or your family. You may have a school age child, or you may want to attend a skill improvement course, English-language course, or trade/vocational course.

Australia boasts some of the world’s best facilities and educators, providing local and international students with a range of quality study options. The Australian education system has produced scientists, designers, educators, entrepreneurs, artists and humanitarians who have changed the world, winning awards from Oscars to Nobel prizes.

A hugely popular destination for overseas students, Australia has the third highest number of international students in the world, behind only the United Kingdom and the United States.

The Australian education system provides primary, secondary and tertiary education:

  • School education (Primary and Secondary)
    School education is similar across all of Australia with only minor variations between states and territories. School education (primary and secondary) is compulsory between the ages of six and 16 (Year 1 to Year 9 or 10). School education is 13 years and divided into:

Primary School– Runs for 7 or 8 years, starting at Kindergarten/Preparatory through to Year 6 or 7. Students aged around 5 to 12 years old.
Secondary School – Runs for 3 or 4 years, from Years 7 to 10 or 8 to 10. Students aged around 12-18.
Senior Secondary School – Runs for 2 years, Years 11 and 12.

  • Tertiary education
    Tertiary education includes both higher education (including universities) and vocational education and training (VET).In order to provide regulated qualification in the Australian education and training system, the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) was introduced to underpin the national system of qualifications. It encompasses higher education, vocational education and training and schools. It incorporates the quality assured qualifications from each education and training sector into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework.
