A Guide to the Best Universities in Australia (for U.S. students)

In the minds of Americans, any mention of Australia will likely conjure up associations with kangaroos, vegemite sandwiches, and quotes from Crocodile Dundee (even though they are unlikely to have ever actually watched the movie). But there is more to the Land Down Under than just cultural references. In fact, college bound students from the United States may wish to become familiar with the continent/country’s world class institutions of higher education like the University of Melbourne, Australian National University, and the University of Sydney. The following list will provide key information about Australia’s top colleges including: Full-time undergraduate enrollment, the percentage of international students, the number of U.S. undergraduate students, tuition, entry requirements, domestic and world rankings, as well as each school’s top academic programs.
