Student Webinar: Why You Should Study (and Work!) in a Regional Area

Excluding metropolitan Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, you’ll find that almost everywhere in Australia is considered a ‘designated regional area’. But what does this mean, and how can studying in regional Australia benefit you as an international student?

You can choose between bustling city life in one of the nation’s regional state and territory capitals, or embrace the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live amongst the unique Australian landscape in a quiet regional town. This webinar discussed life in a regional area as an international student, steps to regional migration and government incentives and post-study work opportunities.

Joined by a panel of international guests – Andrew Houey, International Marketing Director of StudyAdelaide, Edgar Ho, International Student Advisor for TasTAFE, and current Flinders University international student, Rui Ma, we covered everything you need to know about living in Australia’s regional areas.

This webinar is sponsored by Taylors College Perth and StudyAdelaide
