Over 180,000 Students From Different Countries Look Forward for an Australian Education
They flock the country with an expectancy to get the best education from a reputed first-class education provider. Each with armed plans to pursue internationally acclaimed courses in a progressive, dynamic and conducive learning environment.
Aside from being a nice place to get a first class education, it is a great place to live. The place has a reputation of being one of the most amiable countries in the world, which is at the same time, safe, fresh, clean and has a low crime rate. Australian lifestyle is also one of the best in the world.
prawled cities are rated as the most sought after places to live. Looking at the cost of living, research found that the country appears with cities Melbourne and Sydney to be numbers 15th and 36th of the most expensive cities to live. London is ranked 3rd while new York is in number 22. The economy is strong with low employment rate. This implies that international students who wish to work won’t be having problems landing for one.
Most Australian educational institutions give liberty to students to do independent learning. The approach is more flexible honing up the character of being responsible in meeting the necessary requirements demanded by the course. For some students who fail to meet the deadline of submissions, they won’t be bothered being chase after for late requirements. The method of learning is a mixture of tutorial, laboratory and practical sessions. This method has lesser contact hours and invites an avenue for a more self-directed task. Students will be trained to work independently with minimal supervision. However, for tutorial discussion, they experience a more active and vocal interaction.
The casual and relaxed attitude of studying does not imply playing hooky and being irresponsible. The method is purposely to develop a well trained independent learner. Inside the rooms, students call their teachers and lecturers not by titles instead by their first names. Since Australians look after themselves as an “egalitarian nation”, it means everybody is in equal footing. No one is treated with a special attention. International students having trouble during the transition period have lots of ways to seek help. Universities and educational institutions have international student offices where counselors can help directly in learning to cope. Seminars and special lectures are help to help improve conversational English as well as other related academic subject areas.
To avail an application to study in Australia, it can be made directly to the school the student intends to study or through and agent or counselor in the student’s country. Every institution has its own unique set of requirements for application depending on the courses of study. Education adviser can assist with enrollment and visa application. List of the sets of requirements can be obtained from Education Centers or the Australian Embassy.
The process of application should begin about twelve months before the intended enrollment. Students who are waiting for results from final examinations are given provisional acceptance which is base on the student’s past scholastic performance. These details should be supplied when applying for admission to an institution:
A detailed account of previous study in full, attached with copies of qualifications already awarded.
An evidence of an English language proficiency. (that is, appropriate IELTS score or as accepted by the institution)
An evidence of sufficient funds to cover all costs in line with the period of study
The application forms and supporting documents are given to either a local agent or directly to school. Once the application is accepted, the enrolling institution will send a letter offering a place in the chosen field and requesting a partial payment of the tuition fee and health insurance. Once these are settled, the school will issue a Confirmation of Enrollment (eCoE). This evidence the qualification for applying for a student visa.

Awning or not to Awning that is the question
Welcome to another one of my articles(rants). What are the pros and cons of using an awning?
Most Caravan parks in the UK allow awnings on their land with just a few exceptions. Some caravan sites may charge you extra and some may not it all depends.
Some caravan sites only allow them with the ground sheets that let the grass breathe,
So what are the draw back on having an awning, well firstly you have to put it up!!! Unless you have one of those new swanky ones that click together you’re going to be setting aside a t least 45 minutes!!!
On the caravan sites in the UK you can be pretty assured that it will rain at some point on the day you are due to be returning home so you will have to pack away a wet awning. If you don’t get it out at home and allow it to dry properly they can really adopt a nasty smell.
Wind is an issue as well; last thing you want is the face of your caravan ripping off!! You may think that’s a little extreme but I kid you not it isn’t, ask the insurers!!!
No all of these issues are the same whether you’re on a caravan site in France or in the UK, I would say it rains heavier abroad but tends to dry up quicker. It can be windier abroad as well so be careful.
I guess they are a sort of extension to the caravan which come in handy at times but can also be a fad to put up and take down.
Why not just get a bigger caravan? I mean at least you can have air conditioning in caravans these days rather that read in a red hot awning!!! Because lets be honest they are really muggy when the weather is nice.
Awnings seem to be the in thing abroad these days, every caravans site in France I have stayed all the caravans have them; also they don’t seem to charge any extra for them!! Which is a bonus?
