Coming to study in a city you may not be familiar with, and where you may not know anyone, can be a challenge. Youï¿½ll be leaving your friends and family, sometimes for years. Youï¿½ll be leaving a culture thatï¿½s familiar, and coming somewhere new. Whatï¿½s it like? Whatï¿½s the food like? The weather? The people?
Thatï¿½s why many international students test the water before they take the plunge.
A good way to learn more about studying in Victoria, is to come here for a short-term study tour. Theyï¿½re available for secondary and tertiary students, and combine educational programs with activities youï¿½ll enjoy, and which will show you different aspects of living in Victoria. Youï¿½ll also make contacts that will be useful if you decide to return for a longer period of study.
All of Victoriaï¿½s schools, vocational education and training institutions and universities run these programs. Find out more about them by going to the course and institutionsearch. For information on study tours at a Victorian Government school, go to the Government Schools International Education website.
