The Australian government has launched a few initiatives to encourage international students to study and live in regional areas in Australia. Some of these regional areas include; Adelaide, Perth, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Darwin and Hobart.
So, what does this mean for an international student?

- Opportunity to receive regional scholarships from various universities
- Benefits of additional regional points on application for further stay in Australia as well as;
