Hey everyone! I’m writing this blog as part of our “Australia is…” series that you’ve seen on our Facebook page and in some of our earlier blogs too! This one is devoted to showing why Australia is a great place to study because of how multicultural it is!
When most people think about Australia, they don’t really picture it as being a place that is very ethnically diverse, but that statement couldn’t be farther from the truth!
Australia is actually one of the most ethnically diverse countries in the world! There are people here from all over the world, and an absolute tonne of people from Asian countries. A huge part of this international population is made up of international students who have come to study with their friends in such a beautiful place. Parents are often very excited to send their kids to Australia to study too, as they see it as a great place to learn and build close relationships with friends.
There were close to 5 million international students enrolled in Australia last year. For a country with a population of only 22 million, that’s a pretty significant chunk. Just imagine all the friendships you could build here with people from Australia and around the world!
Would you like to tell us something about your home country? We’d love to hear from you and what makes your culture so amazing!
