4 Essential Tips for Studying in Australia

Published

on

Deciding to take your studies overseas means you’re in for a challenge. But taking your studies to Australia means you’re in for the adventure of a lifetime. Australia is known for its high standards of living, it’s world-class education system, it’s laid back lifestyle and it’s rich, diverse culture. All this makes it a magnet for students from all over the world.

But before you jump on a plane and settle into your student accommodation, it’s important to undertake a little research into what you can expect and how to make this drastic change, much more manageable. Your education journey starts right here! Read on for 4 essential tips for studying in Australia.

Think about transport

Australia is a huge country which means having travel arrangements in place is essential. Travel between your accommodation and your classes, or from your halls to your job in the next town over, requires your own mode of transport and the right kind of insurance cover. Insurance providers like Qantas car insurance are ready to help you find the right cover for your needs. Don’t travel in Australia without the right car insurance coverage! Having your own transport means you won’t have to rely on public transport, you’ll be much more independent, and you’ll get to see more of this breathtaking country. 

Figure out your budget

Your car insurance is something you’ll also have to work into your student budget. Before you arrive as a student, take some time to work out your living expenses and how far your student loan will take you. You’ll find plenty of work opportunities in Australia to help keep the dollars coming in, and it’s another great way to immerse yourself in the local culture, make friends and build an impressive CV before you’ve even got your qualifications. Consider the following in your student budget:

Travel/insurance costsBooks and study materialsAccommodationVisa Fees – you’ll need a working Visa to get a jobHealth careFoodLeisure time

Get health coverage

Australia is a great place to live and study but as a student, you’ll be required to have overseas student health coverage. This means if you fall ill whilst in Australia or if you need medical attention, you’re covered. Healthcare in Australia is often a mix of private healthcare insurance plans and limited access to Medicare which is free to citizens. Having a student care plan in place means you’re covered no matter what.

Understand the rules of the road

In Australia, they drive on the left side of the road and if that’s difficult for you to get your head around, you may also want to look out for kangaroos relaxing in the road at dusk and other incredible (and even dangerous) members of the animal kingdom.

If you’re planning to hire a car or purchase your own whilst studying in Australia, then you’re going to need to get to grips with road rules and regulations, as well as new road signs and various types of terrain!

Final thoughts…

With plenty of preparation and planning, you’re sure to make some incredible memories whilst studying down under. Don’t forget your sunglasses and sunblock!

Have a virtual visit with Santa this year with Airbnb

Published

Wanting to help the Christmas community continue to earn income during what would normally be their busiest time of year, it is calling all Santas, elves and reindeer to submit their idea for an Online Experience idea. It will also be partnering with Santa Visits USA to offer even more ways to meet Santa Claus and the entire North Pole gang this year. These include Christmas magic with Kris Kingle himself, a holiday-themed bedtime pyjama party, a visit with head elf, Buzz Twinkletoes, and even a murder mystery show with Mrs Claus.

“According to a new report by the Fraternal Order of Real-Bearded Santas, nearly a third of their members surveyed will not be taking part in in-person visits this year,” says Airbnb. “As many of Santa Claus entertainers worldwide live on a fixed income and are reliant on their income from appearances during the holiday season, this new reality has created serious economic hardship for countless Santa performers.”

Guests can also enjoy Santa Claus around the world, with special experiences designed for families of all backgrounds, including people with disabilities. These include a “Virtual Visit and Story Time with Santa,” “Mama Claus Holiday Joy,” “Sign Language Santa,” “Meet Santa Claus in Lapland” and “Santa Storytime” with an award-winning author. In addition, hosts are sharing their own holiday traditions from around the world so people can feel festive from home, such as “How to Throw a Holiday Dinner Party,” “Create recycled puppets for the holidays” and “Sing Holiday Songs with a Broadway Star.”

Airbnb will provide additional support to Santa Claus entertainers who are interested in becoming Online Experience hosts, helping them to make a seamless transition to virtual visits. Further information is available here, and you can read about the holiday experiences already available here.
