Study Destination Make your dreams to study in Australia a reality!

Besides the fact that Australia is only an eight-hour plane ride away from Malaysia (with affordable fares!), many fantastic opportunities await students who are interested in furthering their studies in Australia, making it a popular destination.

However, you may or may not be aware that the country has the fastest rising living costs than the rest of the world. There are solutions to work around thisone of them is through taking up twinning courses, which you can read about here.

Another way is to consider applying for scholarships offered by Australian universities. Not all of these scholarships will cover 100% of your tuition fees, but they will make a huge impact in easing your financial constraints.

Take a look at a scenario below, which you could experience when you’re studying in Australia:

Sounds feasible, doesn’t it? However, most of these scholarships require you to either hold an offer or apply for your course first, so it is important to start applying ahead of the upcoming July intake. Normally, it takes up to 4-6 weeks for applications and scholarships to be processed, so you should start applying your applications as early as April!
