How to choose a good university in Australia

After finding out that Australia has one of the best education systems, it can actually be a bit confusing which school to choose once you decide to study in Australia. There are certain steps that you can take that will help you choose what is suitable for you.

The first thing is to get on the net, and see the universities or schools that offer the course you want to do in Australia. Once you are done, it is best to communicate to the past and current students of each school you are interested in. It is good to talk to multiple students from the same school in different faculties to get a full idea of the life in that school and area. Important questions that you can ask are:

The education itself that is the lectures, tutors, the course material and amount of work, and whether the course you want is more practical than theoretical or not.
How the jobs are attained and if it is easy to do so or not at that particular place.
The availability of the facilities and how long they have been there.
Accommodation costs, cleanliness, how many roommates etc.
How to get into the university? How easy it is and how to do it quickly.
The social life, like societies, different clubs like book clubs and all other social things.
Find out how long the course will take, and how much it will cost
Finally find out if your course is accredited by most employers

Note that some schools have sites which offer answers to some or even most of these questions. After getting all the answers you need, the next step is to study which one will be best for you looking at the results from your first step. Then after choosing that particular school make sure you attend its open day this will help you know how to go there, the transport options and far the campus might be from where you will be living. This will also help you view the facilities they have like the libraries, halls, lecture rooms and the technology as well.
