As Australia’s capital city, Canberra has grown into a thriving cultural and social hub since its creation in 1908. It may be a relatively small city, but locals pride themselves on building a strong sense of community. Situated around the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra welcomes thousands of international students every year to its world-class educational institutions. Students can take advantage of Canberra’s many cafes, museums and art galleries, as well as the city’s laid-back lifestyle and natural wonders (fun fact: it’s the third-cleanest capital city in the world). It is also home to various educational institutions and world-class research centres, which makes it the best choice of many international students.
