Learn English in Australia

Take an English course in Australia and discover the country’s exotic landscapes and iconic wildlife.

Natural landscapes
Along the coast, you will find beautiful beaches that are popular with surfers because of their fantastic waves. It is also here that you will find most of the country’s inhabitants, with around 89% of the population living in coastal cities. However, Australia is much more than attractive beaches, it is a huge country with rainforests, red rock deserts and various wildlife parks where you can meet the country's famous koalas and kangaroos. Why not head out into the outback to discover more about Australia’s aboriginal heritage, go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, hiking in the Blue Mountains or wine tasting in the Barossa Valley?

Local people
The Aussies are known for their welcoming and friendly personalities and many people are attracted to Australia because of the relaxed way of life. For those who love being in a big city, Sydney and Melbourne both offer a fantastic array of cultural activities, great restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, and each of the smaller cities have their own unique character and atmosphere.

Australia - Travel Guide


Find out about the required documentation for entry into your destination country. It is mandatory to have appropriate medical insurance during the entire duration of your stay abroad.

Consult your closest embassy about the entry requirements to the country or check https://www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/immigration-and-visas.

Safety and security
The security situation is subject to changes over time. We therefore recommend that you visit the website gov.uk or travel.state.gov for further information.

Health
For general health information we recommend travelhealthpro.org.uk and fitfortravel.nhs.uk.

Currency: Australian Dollar (AUD)
For longer trips, it can pay to open a bank account locally in order to be able to withdraw even small amounts free of charge.

Tipping
Tipping is not expected and is not common in most cases. An exception can be made if the service is particularly good in a restaurant. In this case an additional 10% is often given. If you stay in a hotel, you can thank the chambermaid or suitcase carrier with approx. 1-2 AUD per piece of luggage or night. For taxi drivers, the amount is rounded up in part.

On the website numbeo you can find more information about the cost of living in Australia.

Voltage
The voltage of 120 volts does not correspond to that of Western Europe. Many electronic devices, such as mobile phones and notebooks, work with 100 - 240 volts and can either be switched or do this automatically. If this is not the case, you will need an adapter. It's best to take a look at the user manual. A voltage converter is needed because the sockets are different from ours. (see also image)

Clothing
The weather conditions of the different seasons vary depending on the location. Take a look at our climate graphs before packing!

Fun facts
Did you know that Australia has the largest number of free-living dromedaries in the world?
