The Australian school system is broken into two main types of schools, Public and Private. Public schools are government owned and most of the associated costs of attending the school are provided by government funding. Private schools are subsidised but the government to a small degree and the majority of their funding is raised through school attendance fees. Private school fees are generally between $10,000 and 15,000 per year per child. This price is quite expensive however these schools carry the reputation of excellent sporting and scholastic achievement.
There are many English schools across Australia and it is important to find a reputable company that can provide you with a government approved qualification. Be sure to make your time in choosing a school that is a registered CRICOS provider. English Schools will generally run lesson in blocks, for example, a course may run for six weeks at a time.
TAFE stands for Technical and Further Education. TAFE is Australia’s largest provider of vocational education and training but most of the qualifications that can be gained sit below a university level Bachelors Degree.

- interested in working and earning while you’re learning through an apprenticeship or traineeship
- looking for a pathway to university

There are 37 public universities and 2 private universities in Australia. A higher education provider is either a:
