Bachelor degree at GU

You cannot enter university in Australia after the 11th grade, as school education here lasts longer. Applicants need to eliminate the academic difference. There are two ways to do this: either study for a year at a university in your home country, or complete one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). In order to enter a bachelor's program, applicants must successfully pass the entrance exams.

GU campus

The city campus of GU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Gold Coast has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. Foreigners who come to GU through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.

What to do after graduation

In Australia, you can stay for a period of 1.5 to 4 years after graduation. To do this, you must obtain a graduate visa — it allows you to work in the country without changing your visa to a work one. Graduates of GU are in demand in the labor market, as the reputation of the educational institution among employers is quite high according to the results of the QS world ranking.
