International Study in Perth
Situated on a coastal plain Perth remains a great attraction to those that love the outdoors, you can swim in the surf on some of the best beaches in the world, walk amongst ancient trees and fields of wildflowers, taste delicious local produce, explore gorges and wilderness areas and meet relaxed, friendly people.
The variety of landscapes and climates in Western Australia means there is always plenty of sunshine, making it a perfect year-round destination.
It is a land blessed with spectacular diversity where the deep reds of ancient interior rock formations contrast with the sparkling blue of the Indian and Southern Oceans and the lush greenery of the stunning southern regions.
Western Australia is a growing State with much to offer. Employment is readily available for those who are prepared to take what might be offered at the time.
