Australia is a great place to live, work, and raise a family, but there are the top 10 reasons to migrate. Following is a list of the some of the best things that continue to bring people to Australia.
Australia’s economy has proven to be resilient through the global financial crisis and with our proximity to Asia the future is rosy with continued growth expected. Australia has a low unemployment rate and skills shortages in many professional and trade occupations bring skilled workers to Australia each year on long-term work visas. Statistics show that the majority of these workers, once settled, decide to stay on in Australia through the permanent employer sponsored visa options.
There’s no doubt that Australians enjoy a high quality of life. With plenty of fresh air, low pollution levels, and a low population in a vast country of superb natural landscapes and breathtaking scenery many choose to make Australia their home simply for the beauty of the place. They live in vibrant cities but have a love of the outdoors and activities like camping, bushwalking, and fishing are extremely popular. Australia protects its natural heritage with over 500 national parks.
Australia has a high standard of education and many students come to Australia to receive a top level university education. International student numbers peaked in 2008-09 with around 631,000 students from overseas enrolled in tertiary educational institutions across the country. At the time over one in five tertiary students studying in Australia were international students. The number of international students has declined in recent years as changes to skilled migration have made it more difficult for students to remain in Australia permanently without obtaining a job after graduation.
