Education System in Australia

The education system in Australia is backed by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Introduced in 1995, AQF is a national policy that covers the qualifications from the school leaving certificate to Senior Secondary Certificate of Education to the Tertiary Education Sector.

 

Higher education in Australia is organized in two sectors – universities registered by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and vocational education and training (VET), which is regulated and registered by the Australian Skills Quality Agency (ASQA).

VET

These courses are offered by the Technical And Further Education (TAFE) institutions that are government-funded, as well as private Registered Training Organizations (RTO) and adult and community education centers. VET courses incorporate on-job training in addition to online or classroom training.




Undergraduate

The bachelor’s courses take 3 years to complete, however, some institutions are offering fast-track bachelor’s programs, which can be completed in 2 years . These courses are typically 3 - 4 years long and lead to a bachelor's degree. They offer a broad range of subject areas and often include practical work experience or research opportunities. Some universities also offer a fast-track bachelor’s program that can be completed in 2 years .

Graduate

Australian universities offer a broad range of graduate options, including a graduate certificate, graduate diploma, and master’s degree. The graduate certificate duration is six months, whereas a graduate diploma can be earned in eighteen months, and a master’s degree in a year or two, depending on the university and type of course.




PhD Programs​
