    Australia is a relatively young country in world terms. Our Bachelor of Arts (Australian Studies) will give you a broad perspective on issues linked to the Australian continent and its populations, its history and culture, its Indigenous peoples and its place in the modern global world. As an interdisciplinary major, you will draw on diverse fields of study, including anthropology, communication and media studies, drama, English literature, history, Indigenous studies, international relations and music. By the end of your degree you will be equipped to address contemporary cultural and social issues of national importance, in terms of both its national, regional and global contexts.

    Australia requirements for international students

    In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

    Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test. 

    You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
