Australia isn't just kangaroos, koalas and beautiful scenery. Australia is also known for its vibrant cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, along with its outstanding university system.

Educational institutions in Australia offer a wide variety of courses and degrees with affordable tuition. Not to mention, Australia is at the forefront of technology and scientific research. [You might also want to read: Why study in Australia?]

All Australian universities accept TOEFL scores

The TOEFL test is an English-language assessment that measures your ability to use and understand English as it is read, written, heard and spoken in the university classroom. So your future professors will trust that when you attend class, you'll be an active participant. If you're looking to admire the Sydney Opera House or explore the Great Barrier Reef, the TOEFL test can take you anywhere in Australia.

Even more good news: Once you don your cap and gown and receive your diploma, you can apply to stay in Australia. TOEFL scores are now used for Australia's post-study, business, skilled migration, work and holiday visas. This means you can focus on preparing for one test throughout your entire journey.
