Australian Education system
The Australian education system offers primary, secondary and tertiary education linked across the country and across the world.
School education (Primary and Secondary)
School education is similar across all of Australia with only minor variations between states and territories.
School education (primary and secondary) is compulsory between the ages of six and sixteen (Year 1 to Year 9 or 10).
School education is 13 years and divided into:
- Primary school – Runs for seven or eight years, starting at Kindergarten/Preparatory through to Year 6 or 7.
- Secondary school – Runs for three or four years, from Years 7 to
10 or 8 to 10.
- Senior secondary school – Runs for two years, Years 11 and 12.
Tertiary education in Australia
Tertiary education includes both higher education (including universities) and vocational education and training (VET).
Higher Education in Australia
Australia is internationally recognized for providing the best practice in vocational and education training. Australian Universities provide international students with choices and opportunities across the study discipline and this makes Indian students study in Australia. Higher education comprises bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. The skills and knowledge acquired at these levels make a student ready to work in the industry eventually. There are many grants and scholarships
and bursaries available to assist you financially with your studies in Australia.
- Bachelor’s degree: Duration – Three to five years (depending on the program). A Bachelor Degree is the basic qualification for entry to a field. It will give you a systematic body of knowledge, the underlying principles, and the problem-solving techniques you' ll need to work in the discipline. With deeper content than an Associate Degree, your Bachelor’s Degree will develop your skills and knowledge to the point where you can pursue postgraduate studies if you want to.
- Bachelor’s degree (honors): Duration – Four years. Honors may require an optional additional year of study (usually research-based) following a three-year degree or may be awarded for academic achievement in degrees of four or more years.
Duration of 2 years. A Masters’s degree can help make you a leader in your field. It usually takes one or two years depending on whether you have completed a Bachelor’s degree or a Bachelor’s degree with honors. A Masters’s degree is a specialized course of independent research or traditional coursework. Sometimes it can be a combination of the two. Students who undertake a Masters’s degree are expected to work independently and have the ability to solve complex problems.
Vocational Education and Training (VET)
An Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification provides an efficient, cost-effective pathway to employment by providing ' applied’ (or practical) learning opportunities. A VET qualification can also provide a pathway to further studies, including higher education degrees.
VET qualifications are provided by government institutions, called Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutions, as well as private Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
Your VET course will broaden your skills in a specialized area that
provides the practical experience you'll need to design, plan and implement the practical and technical aspects of your field in an industry context.
Qualifications under VET
Certificate IV Duration – 12 to 18 months
Diploma Duration – 18 to 24 months
Advanced Diploma Duration – 24 to 36 months
AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework)
The Australian education system is distinguished from many other countries by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). The AQF was established in 1995 and is a national policy that covers qualifications from the tertiary education sector (higher education and vocational education and training) in addition to the school-leaving certificate; the Senior Secondary Certificate of Education.
The AQF has 10 levels and links school, vocational, and university education qualifications into one national system. This allows you to move easily from one level of study to the next, and from one institution to another, as long as you satisfy student visa requirements. It allows for choice and flexibility in career planning. All qualifications in the AQF help prepare you for both further study and your working life.
If you are studying for an AQF qualification, you can be sure that your institution is Government-authorised and nationally accredited, and that your degree or other AQF qualification will be genuine.
Our institutions are linked across the country and across the world, which makes it easy to move through the education system between courses or institutions and formal agreement and recognition frameworks mean every step of the path will contribute to your future no matter what your study or career goals.
