International Students

 

Life in Australia

 

Australia is a young, vibrant country with a rich history of multiculturalism. With its second-to-none natural beauty and clean cities, Australia is a pretty great place to call home! Each year, more and more international students are choosing to study in Australia because of the world-renowned education system, social security benefits and ongoing job opportunities.

 

Decode’s campus is located in Sydney. Sydney is Australia’s largest city with a population of about 4.5 million. Sydney is the capital of New South Wales, located on the central-east coast of Australia. The year long climate in Sydney is temperate and mild. Sydney has world famous beaches and offers you the opportunity to live the quintessential Australian lifestyle. Sydney is Australia’s most expensive city, ranking the 10th most expensive city in the world. This ranking means a high cost of living but also high salaries and great opportunities, after you graduate.

Homestay Service (Accommodation Available)

Australian Homestay Network

 

The Australian Homestay Network (AHN) is a preferred homestay provider for Decode College. Why Choose AHN?

Beginning your adventure with AHN homestay allows students to jump right into their studies without the worries of finding housing, furniture and signing leases all from overseas. AHN hosts will help you to settle in to life in Australia and help you acclimatise to the different cultures, climate and lifestyle you will experience while you study here.

 

You will settle faster, be safer and learn about life in Australia and the expectations of students much faster. Your AHN host will also help you with a personalised one-on-one orientation including advice about transport, shopping and banking options as well as mentoring, culturalisation and developing a local network.

Our experience is that better-settled international students get better academic results and mix better with domestic students. If you are interested please visit this page for more information;

Overseas Health Cover (OSHC)

International students undertaking formal studies in Australia, and their dependents (for example, spouses and children under 18 years old), must obtain OSHC. It includes cover for visits to the doctor, some hospital treatment, ambulance cover and limited pharmaceuticals (medicines). OSHC insurers can provide a range of different OSHC products. These may range from a basic product which covers only the compulsory minimum services to comprehensive products which cover, in addition to the compulsory minimum services, extra services as specified under the particular policy.

 

Learn more about OSHC here https://www.studyinaustralia.gov.au/english/live-in-australia/insurance. 

The Department of Home Affairs requires overseas students to maintain OSHC for the duration of time they are in Australia. For further information please visit the Department of Home Affairs website.
