AS job competition gets tougher, more millennials across the globe are pushing for advanced degrees. Some are even going the distance—literally thousands of miles away from home—to earn their diplomas abroad. Why? Because the payoffs of attaining a higher education overseas are becoming too good to miss: Graduates get international exposure, wider skill sets, and more attractive career prospects.
No wonder forward-thinkers are seeking learn-while-you-work opportunities in leading study destinations. Contrary to popular belief, studying in reputable institutions abroad is no longer a long shot for Filipinos who are poised to make a mark. Read on to find out how the Education Centre of Australia (ECA) can take you one step closer to that coveted graduate or postgraduate degree!
Going the Extra Mile: Australia’s Bustling Student Community
Over the years, Australia has become a popular choice for students based overseas. And it doesn’t take rocket science to see why. Home to eight of the top universities in the world, the “land down under” is currently ranked as the third most popular student destination. One of its biggest attractions for undergraduates and postgrads? A bustling student life that allows individuals to learn and earn at the same time!
In Australia, international students are allowed to work 40 hours per fortnight while studying. Having these learning and employment opportunities within reach is certainly a deal-maker for students who (1) need to cover living expenses abroad and (2) want to gain work experience in their chosen field. And the good news? ECA takes the guesswork out of studying in Australia’s top-ranked universities, so you can focus on what matters most— personal and professional growth.
Making it Happen: What You Need to Know about ECA
“As a former international student to Australia, my dream has always been to give something back, to create opportunities with excellent support facilities for all students,” said Rupesh Singh, CEO of Education Centre of Australia. He did exactly that—and more.
In a span of 13 years, what started as an acquisition of a small English language school has grown to an accredited group of colleges that are not only recognized by regulatory bodies in Australia, but has also partnered with leading domestic and international businesses. To date, ECA has helped over 7,000 students and more than 1,600 interns to study and work in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.
With the goal of providing world-class education and full student support in mind, ECA has been offering global study solutions—including housing, mentoring, and even crucial skills training—to eligible applicants here and abroad. In fact, ECA has successfully assisted hundreds of Filipinos by far. And you could be the next!
