University is the highest level of study in Australia. There are two levels: undergraduate level (Bachelor Degree) and/or a postgraduate level (Graduate Certificate, Diploma, Masters, PhD). Australia has 41 universities, 38 of which are government funded and three privately funded.
Students in Australia quite often enroll in a double or combined Bachelor Degree program. This leads to the award of two Bachelor Degrees and the most common fields are arts, commerce, law and science. A wide range of courses is offered – ranging from science to management and commerce, humanities to engineering, and law to health sciences. Australian institutions rank among the world’s best by discipline, particularly in engineering and technology, medicine, environmental science, and accounting and finance.
