The Australian higher education system is composed of an entire sector of universities that provide both domestic and foreign campus opportunities to students from all fields of study. A world of information and practical experiences awaits students as they prepare to extend their classroom knowledge and skills into their chosen profession.
Australia’s 39 universities are designed to respond to performance feedback according to international standards of quality. This standard is set by a collaborative effort from professional, institutional, and governmental groups which periodically review the quality of the university’s many aspects.
The success of this system was verified by the Lisbon Council, who ranked the system top in the world, specifically for the systems’ capability to produce the knowledge-based generation of professionals who are equipped to deal with a changing global information economy. This approach has received a warm response from enrollment statistics, which hover at around one million. The local economy also benefits substantially, as continuous activity contributes a significant amount to the GDP of Australia.
One of the most stunning ratios concerning the Australian university system is its research percentage contribution compared to the total population. The per capita statistic is impressive; although the total population is less than .5% of the world, the research industry in Australia produces 3% of the world’s research data!
Australian universities strive to promote the development of personal potential in its student body. The conceptual orientation is to prepare students to interact in a quickly changing environment and a global economy that is undergoing a serious economic transition.
