Australia's IT services are of high quality, and widely recognised worldwide. In addition, Australia's cost of studying and living is low, and lifestyle protection, cleanliness and efficiency makes it an excellent choice for study.
One of the top reasons to study information technology is the increase in job opportunities, with the Australian Department of Employment predicting that the demand for IT professionals will increase by 12.8% in 2018. Across Australia's state capital cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, the biggest growth can be seen. Melbourne is Australia's technology centre and home to more than half of the top 20 tech companies in the country, while Victoria State is home to over 8,000 IT enterprises, including IBM, Microsoft and Intel.

- gain sponsorship with their employer through the Employer Nomination Scheme or Regional Sponsored Migration
- apply for permanent residency through Australia’s Skill-select skilled migration program
