Why are so many people moving to Australia?
Australia is a successful modern democracy with the lot going for it. The most common reasons why people move to Australia from the United Kingdom include:
- Australia is a very prosperous country
Australia is one of the few countries to make it through the global financial crisis without going into recession. The economy continues to be one of the strongest in the world, with a high level of economic freedom, robust banking sector, low unemployment rate, high GDP per capita and many strong export industries. It is the perfect location to start a business or find employment.
- It is a beautiful country
Australia is one of the sunniest countries on the planet. Combine that with the stunning beaches and pristine natural environment, and you have a perfect location for enjoying outdoor activities. Australians love the great outdoors and spend a lot of time in the wilderness or at their local beach. The natural flora and fauna in Australia is also very diverse, thanks to the country’s isolation.
- Australia is welcoming of immigrants
Australia is an immigrant nation which has accepted large numbers of Irish, English, Chinese, Scottish, Lebanese, Italian, German, American, Indian, Greek, and French people. It is widely considered to be one of the most successful multicultural nations on the planet. Immigrants are always made to feel welcome and the egalitarian nature of Australia means new arrivals are given many opportunities to succeed.
- The way of life is idyllic
Australians work hard, but they also enjoy their leisure time — they really know how to have a good time. The work/life balance is excellent in Australia and there are plenty of activities to enjoy during your leisure time. Aside from the many outdoor activities that Australians enjoy, there is a real passion for culture and the arts in Australia. You can enjoy some world-class music, art, and theatre at one of the many beautiful arts venues. Thanks to the multicultural nature of Australia and the quality of its produce, the food is outstanding and there are many world-class restaurants.
- One of the best education systems in the OECD
Australia usually ranks in the top 5 of OECD countries for educational outcomes. The results of Australian students is particularly strong for science and mathematics. These excellent results have occurred because the state and federal governments are committed to funding the education system well.
Australia developed a new national curriculum in 2012, which is currently being rolled out to schools. There public and private schools are both quite strong, with limited disparity. Children must attend school between the ages of five and fifteen to seventeen (depending upon the state or territory). Children can enrol in Kindergarten from as young as 4-years of age. Children then begin primary school at 5 or 6 and secondary school at 12 or 13.
Some of the best schools in Australia include
- James Ruse Agricultural School
- North Sydney Boys High
- Melbourne High School
- Brisbane Grammar School
- Canberra Grammar School
- Radford College
