Study in Australia

Study in Australia is the official education website for the Embassy of Australia.
In the US, the education office is based in the Embassy of Australia in Washington, DC. We work with institutions, associations, government and non-government agencies, as well as students and advisers to strengthen education opportunities, research, and teaching between Australia and North America.

We provide students, parents and advisers with information on study in Australia, including:

  • Australian education system
  • Quality assurance and consumer protection for overseas students
  • How to find a program (schools, vocational, undergraduate, graduate and professional)
  • Scholarships and funding
  • Application process and entry requirements
  • Pre-departure information

As a government agency, we represent the entire Australian education sector. We do not recommend specific programs or institutions, run our own study abroad programs or accept applications for entry into an Australian institution. We can, however, direct you to a program provider, or an Australian institution’s international office who will help you through the application process for studying in an Australian institution.

If you have questions that are not answered within our website, feel free to contact us by phone (+1 202 454 9762) or e-mail, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
Questions about student visas must be handled by the Information Service for Australian Visas, which can be contacted by phone : +1 905 280 1437, by e-mail or on their website.
