Information about study opportunities in Australia
The decision to study abroad is a significant one, and there are many considerations to take into account. If you are thinking about studying in Australia, the first step is to research your study options thoroughly so as to find the course that best suits your individual needs and aspirations.
Information is available directly from the institutions in Australia or from their appointed representatives here in Pakistan or from Australian Education International (AEI). Often, representatives from the institutions will visit Pakistan to interview students or to participate in exhibitions - details are generally advertised in the daily press.
AEI operates through the Department of education, Science and Training (DEST) office at the Australian High Commission in Islamabad to provide information to Pakistani students who are considering studying in Australia.
A wealth of information is also available through the Australian Government's official website for international students: www.studyinaustralia.gov.au
As a Government organisation, AEI provides objective information. We do not recruit students for particular Australian universities or other education institutions, though we can refer inquiries to them or to their agents in Pakistan. At our office in Islamabad-Pakistan we:
answer queries and assist you to determine the most appropriate course options
answer queries and assist in matters related to Scholarships available for Pakistani students
provide information material for reference from Australian universities, State/Territory Government TAFE systems and private vocational education and training providers

You can call into the DEST office in Islamabad, Pakistan during working hours.*
