About Perth

Famous for its friendly people and relaxed atmosphere, Perth offers a genuinely laid-back Australian lifestyle.

You’ll discover a clean and modern city with a growing restaurant, arts and music scene. In many respects, it’s generally cheaper than other Australian cities so is ideal for budget-conscious students.

No stay in Perth is complete without venturing out of the city and exploring the immense natural beauty of Western Australia’s expansive outback, stunning coastal landscapes and white sandy beaches.

Here you’ll see some of the most beautiful sunsets our country has to offer. In the south-west part of the state, you’ll find the world-renowned wine producing areas and beaches of Margaret River and Albany. To the north-east, you’ll discover some breathtaking natural wonders, including UNESCO World Heritage reef and rock landmarks.

Western Australia offers a relaxed but exciting student lifestyle that will continue to amaze and delight you on a day-to-day basis. Its student population continues to grow, as many are realising the incredible benefits this state has to offer.

If you’re after an inclusive and immersive Australian experience where you’re never too far from the beach, WA is the study destination for you.
