There are forty-three Australian universities. They are teaching and research institutions. A full range of academic and professional disciplines is offered with awards ranging from associate diplomas to doctorates. Many universities have a multi-campus structure, with each campus specialising in particular disciplines. Regional universities, some offering specialised courses, provide a full tertiary experience with students residing on campus and participating in local activities. The standard, design and diversity of education offered by Australian universities are among the most effective in the world. Typically an undergraduate degree takes at least three years to complete, longer for honours or double degrees.

The ESOS Act
The provision of education and training services to overseas students in Australia is regulated by the Department of Education, Science and Training through the “Education Services for Overseas Students Act” and associated legislation. The purpose of the legislation is to protect the interests of people coming to Australia on student visas, by providing tuition and financial assurance and by ensuring a nationally consistent approach to provider registration. The legislation also seeks to ensure the integrity of the industry through visa-related reporting requirements. Under an established “Code of Practice” education providers in Australia are required to provide a consistant, high level of education and support to international students.
