Further, universities and colleges in Australia are very diverse and well-equipped with world-class facilities and quality education which have benefitted not just the country, but the world.

Australian Universities also provide innumerable opportunities in many areas of technology and research, also benefitting from generous funding and offering support to international Ph.D. students. Even undergraduates and postgraduates have the opportunity to attend a Bachelor's and Master's program that involves research.

Apart from studies, University campuses in Australia have a life of their own, and they are like small student towns and encouraging students to socialize, interact, and make friends. Australia also has a multicultural environment, and Australian universities support cultural diversity and in this respect, organize various social and cultural activities.

Popular Courses in Australia

Universities located in Australia have a strong reputation worldwide.

Living Expenses and Part-time Jobs

The prime reason for Australia being popular among Indian (International) students is due to the exceptional quality of education and also because of stay-back and immigration features. It offers some of the best undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the world, but also potentially high living costs one needs to be aware of. 

The Australian Government specifies AU$20,290 as the minimum amount required to cover living costs for one year. This figure excludes tuition fees or the cost of travel to and from the country. The average tuition fee for international undergraduate students is AU$30,840 per annum, whereas, for international postgraduate students, the average tuition fee is AU$31,596.

Generally, the cheaper the cost the further away from the city you will be, the more people you'll be living with, or the more rundown the accommodation will be. Expenses also vary depending on the city in which one chooses to study, with Sydney being more expensive, while Adelaide and Canberra are generally less costly.

International students in Australia are allowed to work up to 40 hours a fortnight during the university semester study periods and full-time during the vacation period. Following are the most popular part-time jobs that a student can take up at Australian universities:

  • Hospitality (working in cinemas, restaurants, bars, hotels, takeaway food stores, and sporting venues)
  • Tourism Management
  • Tutor
  • Agricultural Sector
  • Sales and Telemarketing
  • Administration or Clerical jobs
  • Retail

Overview

Aesthetic, they say, is the hallmark of the cultural significance of a society and rightly so. With the progression of the world expanding at an increasing rate with each passing day, societies, be it cities, organisations, countries or neighbourhoods, are looking to ramp up their aesthetic appeal in order to be able to build up their profile and attract attention. In the world of social media, likes, views and comments, the visual appeal that can be linked to the repute or image of an organisation or location becomes integral. In the lieu of all of this, architecture has appropriately become an important area in the current scenario.

Architecture is defined as both the process and product of planning, designing and constructing structures. Historically, these structures have come to attain significance as cultural symbols. The architecture of a country is a type of an artform in it as well as a representation of its progression over the years. Like all artforms, architecture, too, is often used to give statements. In addition to this, with urban expansion a consistency of the world we inhabit, architecture becomes a necessity.

The element of sustainability becomes a crucial part of architecture as well. This increases the popularity of architecture courses. An architecture degree increases the employability chances of a student owing to the demand of the activity in recent times. In addition to this, a formal education in the subject provides students with an interest in the field an educational base to hone their practical skills and intrigue. All of these factors contribute towards making architecture a sought-after subject. Among all other degrees, the Masters of Architecture (M. Arch) is one of the most prominent.

M.Arch

M. Arch is a postgraduate degree offered in the realm of architecture and teaching various fields affiliated with it. It is usually a practical sort of course, focusing on the vocational perspective of the subject. Irrespective of the variations one chooses to their course, a few topics remain consistent to the course. Design, building science, structural engineering and architectural history remain a part of syllabus no matter what even though some colleges and institutions might offer their students a chance to specialize in one field.

There are various ways in which one might attain qualifications for architecture. One of the routes is to pursue the 3-3.5 years M. Arch program which takes in students who have pursued different courses at the Bachelor’s level. Since the course seeks to give out an overview of a myriad of topics essential to the concept of architecture, it is advantageous with reference to the wide array of topics covered.

Other Degrees for Architecture

There is a myriad of ways in which the degree is meted out in various institutes and universities. The usual techniques adopted by an educational institute in meting out architectural studies are technical, historical and artistic. While some universities offer courses taught under a combination of these techniques, if given a choice, it becomes crucial for the student to choose their university on the basis of the technique used as the method goes on to influence the understanding of the subject. A glance through the classes offered by an educational institute should be enough for candidates to ascertain the method used. Another crucial distinction that arises in this context lies in the field of architecture studies is with reference to M. Arch, MSc (Masters of Science) Architecture and MA (Masters of Art) Architecture.  The MSc program is research-based and deals with the technology involved in the process of architecture, their progression over time, their usage in the process, their advantages, their flaws and the like. The MA program focuses on the artistic part of the process, i.e., the design and layout of a structure and methods to enhance its outwardly beauty and appeal. The M. Arch program, however, is somewhat of a combination of these elements. Most M. Arch courses teach architectural technology, history, design, and other common topics intended to give students a complete overview of the topic.

Best Countries to Study Architecture

Owing to the popularity of architectural courses, multitudes of Indian students aspire to study the subject. Many of these students choose to apply to foreign universities as a foreign-acquired degree could push up employability appeal and prospects owing to the learning garnered and triggered by studying in a multicultural, diverse environment that a foreign university provides.

Moreover, these countries have access to better architectural technology, another contributor to the educational progress of a student.

Moreover, it presents a strong base to the subject should one want to pursue further education. It is fitting, then, that Masters in Architecture is a popular choice for students from all over the world.
