About Australia

Today, Australia is the third most popular international student destination in the world. The country attracts around 300,000 international students every year, and the number has taken a sharp jump in 2018 and 2019. 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. Australia is home to 43 universities which comprises 40 Australian universities, two international universities, and one private specialty university. 

The country has, somewhat, a special allure and has always been drawing talented students like a magnet. Studying in an Australian environment allows for invaluable academic, professional, and personal growth, and opens up an infinite number of career opportunities after graduation. 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.

Top Universities in Australia

The university or college that one chooses to go to can have a significant impact on the rest of one's life that's why it is better to have some research about the universities and their rankings.

Popular Courses in Australia

Universities located in Australia have a strong reputation worldwide. The Australian education system is known to be a strong proponent of internationalization and provides diverse programs which become a prime reason for its popularity among international students. The most popular majors in Australia are as follows:

  • Medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Law 
  • Education
  • Creative Arts and Design
  • Engineering

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

Sports as an industry is quite appealing to the youth. Making a lucrative career in the field of sports is not a piece of cake but at the same time; it will also not leave you disappointed. Sports is the kind of a field that requires you to have a lot of experience and talent of course. It’s a common misconception that envisages that sports as a career option is only meant for people who have a knack for fitness or those who have playing oriented talent. But in reality, it is not so. Hence, it’s important to do away with the misconception by elaborating widely on Sports as a field of study and a career option. Sport is a highly broad concept. The studies involved in sports are in a greater number. Sports as a field of study is manifold. This field of study is widely known as Sports Studies.

Categories of Study

Sports Studies are generally segmented into two types of studies. These are the two main categories of the same. They are popularly known as:

  • Sports Science
  • Sports Management

Then, a student interested in the same field can also consider opting for sports journalism. Sports journalism in India is not yet a thriving and lucrative field for the new graduates wanting to make a lucrative career. However, in the western nations, sports journalism has immense scope in terms of exposure, experience, and employment. It is thriving and fast-paced.

Sports refer to the act of playing a sport that involves a physical effort by a person. Whereas, sports studies refer to studying the business side of sports. In other words, this means, looking at sports through the lens of history, economics, business, management, socio-culture aspects, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. apart from the physical act of playing sports. These courses involve fitness and training that gives us an idea of how the sports industry functions in today’s world.

The types of studies that are stated under the umbrella of sports studies are mentioned below:

  • Sports journalism
  • Sports Sciences
  • Sports Management
  • Sports communication
  • Sports Business
  • Sports coaching
  • Sports law
  • Sports psychology

The above-mentioned fields are the popular fields that can be considered in order to have a degree in sports studies. But getting a bachelor degree in Sports Studies is usually an ideal way to get started. A bachelor degree will help you understand different aspects related to Sports and apply them practically. These aspects include on-field ones as well as the ones which surround sports. One is exposed to the skill set that one can consider equipping him/herself with in order to become a key player. Apart from this, one also learns about the professionalism which is evident in the sports industry and further learning about the functioning of the same.

Types of Degrees

A bachelor degree in Sports Studies is quite underrated when it comes to learning things that are considered essential and highly important.
