Bachelors & Masters

Studying has never been this great!

Study Options Six months, twelve months or even three years studying in one of the most beautiful countries in the world? It is possible! You decide how your academic career is going to look like. The possibilities are endless. You are welcome to have a look below for the most common options. For most options, you are required to possess suitable university entry qualifications like A-levels. Our study specialists are happy to assess your qualification in regards to your desired course in Australia and New Zealand.

Study Abroad Would you like to add something special to your bachelor or master course at home? Then chose the Study Abroad option. You can study one or two semesters at a university in Australia or New Zealand while choosing the papers you like. If your home university agrees, you may even be able to take courses that allow a transfer of the credits you earned Down Under towards your degree at home.

Bachelor You finished high school and consider studying? Then apply for a bachelor degree course in Australia or New Zealand. In this case, you choose to spend a longer period abroad as a bachelor degree takes three to four years to complete. This leaves you plenty of time to learn a lot, get to know other (international) students and explore the country and its culture.

Master You obtained your bachelor degree and would like to complete a master? Then it is a great idea to follow a master degree course abroad, for example in Australia or New Zealand, which builds your CV even stronger than a master at home through the added international experience and cultural knowledge you will gain. In addition, there are many master opportunities in Australia and New Zealand that take only one year to complete.

Master of Business Administration (MBA) Have you worked for a few years and would like to gain more knowledge about your specialisation? Then considering a MBA is definitely worth your time and effort. You will gain profound knowledge of current management techniques and learn how to apply them innovatively. With this title, you can improve your chances on the employment market significantly, especially if you obtained it in an international environment.

(Post) Graduate Certificate / Diploma Would you like to extend your knowledge based on your bachelor but you are not interested in following a master? Then consider following one (or more) certificate or diploma courses. In Australia and New Zealand, there are many suitable opportunities available.

Testimonials

Aniek

“I still look back every day to this time in this beautiful country!”

I studied together with a friend at the ‘Billy Blue College’ in Sydney. I did the course ‘Design Fundamentals’. Think of papers such as Photoshop, Illustrator and indesign. I chose for this course because I wanted to develop my creative side through mastering these computer programmes. I lived with about 50 students in a student house in Sydney and I had a fantastic time there. Every evening was convivial. I enjoyed a great view over Sydney to the Harbour Bridge and the famous Bondi Beach just a 15 min. walk away. It couldn’t have been better. Student Down Under informed us very well regarding the costs involved, the trip to Australia and the local way of living. Next to this, they had good contacts to various schools and this is why we came to the Billy Blue College. This whole trip was a great experience! You get to know yourself and we could explore a lot of the country. Next to studying, we travelled along the East coast in one month. Highlights were skydiving in Cairns, the Whitsundays, Fraser Island, rafting in Tully, the Great Ocean Road near Melbourne and much more. Not to forget celebrating New Year at the Harbour Bridge!! Every day was a new day to fully enjoy! Today, I still look back every day to this time in this beautiful country between the Koala’s Aborigines, Kangaroos, barbecues, strand, sun and that wonderful ‘no worries’ mentality.


Machiel Two times, I didn’t get a place to study medicine. Many Dutch students in a similar situation try to obtain a place in Belgium. Not me, then after I heard of the service offered by Student Down Under, I chose to study in New Zealand. The combination of international students and the friendly Kiwi’s (New Zealanders) makes Auckland a great city to study in. It was a very cool experience. I can only recommend it to everyone; the staff at Student Down Under assist you for free and give you access to a whole lot of very valuable information. Follow Student Down Under online via:
