Perth, the capital of Western Australia, offers world-class education, excellent infrastructure and natural beauty.

A cosmopolitan city of 1.8 million people, every year more and more students are discovering why Perth is the ideal place to study.  Its appeal is based on the excellence, diversity and affordability of education, with opportunities for quality learning and research that range from specialized schools and vocational training, to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

Perth has continuously been ranked in the world’s Top 10 Most Liveable Cities in the World by The Economist Intelligence Unit, (London 2004 - 2013) and QS (London) ranked it as one of the world’s top student cities in 2013.
