Facts About Australia

Historical Overview

Before European settlers arrived in Australia, it was inhabited by the indigenous people, known as Aboriginals, as well as the Torres Strait Islanders. Each had their own way of life, religious beliefs, and culture. This was before it was discovered by Europeans in the eighteenth century through the British explorer James Cook, leading it to become a British colony subsequently witnessing successive European migrations. Factors encouraging this included vast expanses of land, natural resources, and abundant employment opportunities.

The Commonwealth of Australia was established in 1901 through the proclamation of the constitution, with the establishment of six federal states. Australia entered a period of prosperity following World War II. It witnessed numerous migrations, and its population today consists of a mix of its indigenous inhabitants and immigrants who have come from around 200 countries.

Geographical Location

Australia is entirely located in the southern hemisphere. It is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Indian Ocean to the west, and the Timor Sea separating it from the Indonesian islands to the north. It is surrounded by several islands, the most important and largest of which is Tasmania Island in the southeast. The Tasman Sea separates it from New Zealand in the southeast.

Australia is the only country in the world that occupies an entire continent, and it is the smallest continent in the world. It has the lowest population density, with an area of approximately 7.7 million square kilometres, or about 5% of the total land area.



The population of Australia reached (23.5 million) people in 2014, with most of its population concentrated in the south and east, where these regions are characterized by moderate climates. Indigenous Australians, known as Aboriginals, make up 1.5% of the total population, with most of them residing in remote areas in their own communities away from densely populated cities. Australia comprises more than 100 ethnic groups from over 200 countries, making it a country of diverse cultures. Various communities from all over the world are also scattered throughout the country.


The climatic conditions in Australia vary due to the vast expanse of the country. We find that rainfall occurs throughout the year on the eastern coast due to the winds blowing from the ocean and colliding with the eastern mountains of Australia. Rainfall occurs in the summer in the central part of the continent, and it is almost absent in the western half.

The tropical climate predominates in about one-third of Australia's area, with the remaining area falling within the temperate zone. The coldest regions are in the southeastern corner of the mainland and in the state of Tasmania. The following table illustrates the months and climatic seasons in Australia.

Living standards vary from one city to another, increasing or decreasing depending on the lifestyle the student leads.

Accommodation and Transportation



In Australia, there are various types of accommodation available for international students, including options suitable for individual students and those suitable for students with families. It is up to the student to choose the type of accommodation that suits them. There are many real estate agencies throughout all Australia cities, and universities also provide accommodation search services through student support offices. The cost of accommodation in Australia is calculated on a weekly payment basis.

Types of accommodation available for students include:

Homestays with Local Families

Living with a host family is considered one of the most suitable types of accommodation for students, especially at the beginning of their studies in Australia. This is particularly beneficial for English language students as living with a Australia family helps improve their English language skills and understand the customs and traditions of Australia society. A room is allocated for the student within the household, and some families provide breakfast and dinner meals. Students should inquire about the daily routine of life in the household, adapt to the family's lifestyle, and respect their customs and traditions, as the student is considered an ambassador of their country.

Accommodation with a host family can be arranged through the university's international student office or private companies. The cost of living with a host family ranges from 250 to 320 USD per week. Australia families respect other religions, including Islam, allowing students to practice their Islamic religious rituals such as prayer. It is worth mentioning that some Australia families eat pork and may have pets such as cats and dogs in their homes. If the student prefers not to live with a family that engages in such practices, they should inform the office before renting accommodation.


Student Dormitories or Halls of Residence

This type of accommodation is university-managed and subject to its rules and regulations, which students must adhere to. Situated near the university, these accommodations come furnished and often include meal options. There are several types of university accommodation:

Single rooms with shared bathroom facilities for single sexes.

 Single rooms with private bathrooms.

A large room with two or more beds, typically shared by at most two students.


Students are advised to apply early to reserve university accommodation to avoid the possibility of it being fully booked. The cost of university accommodation ranges from 250 to 350 AUSD per week. More information can be found on the university's website.

Renting a House or Apartment

Many students, especially those accompanied by their families, prefer renting private accommodation. Houses or apartments can be rented through the various real estate agencies spread across different cities in Australia. Additionally, the internet can be used to search for available rental properties in the desired area. When signing the contract with the real estate agency, a month's rent is paid in advance as a deposit, which is fully refunded at the end of the contract or upon vacating the house, provided that the house is left in good condition. The cost of renting an independent house range from $450 to $700 AUSD per week.


Before signing, the student must read all the terms of the contract, which typically lasts between 6 to 12 months. Usually, upon signing the contract, the real estate agency provides the student with a report on the condition of the house. The student must thoroughly review the report and ensure that everything mentioned in it is accurate. If any issues are noticed, the student should record them in the report and inform the real estate agency, and it is advisable to keep a copy of the report and notes. If any problems or malfunctions occur in the house during the student's stay, they must inform the agency immediately.

Real estate agencies request the following documents when someone wishes to apply for renting accommodation:

A copy of the passport.

A copy of the driver's license or a copy of health insurance

A copy of the bank statement or financial guarantee certificate from the scholarship provider.

A copy of the latest rent payment receipts if the student is a current renter.

Completion of the rental application form.

Public Transportation


The public transportation network in Australia is considered one of the best in the world. It connects most cities and residential areas, facilitating easy and convenient travel. In some cities, purchasing a separate ticket for each journey is required, while in others, daily, weekly, or monthly tickets can be purchased for all types of transportation. Students must purchase the ticket before using the transportation to avoid any legal violations. The most important public transportation options in Australia include the following:



Trains are considered the primary mode of transportation in Australia, with tickets available at all train stations and post offices across the country. Train schedules can be obtained from customer service desks at stations and from internet websites.



A sophisticated network of trams is available in some Australian cities such as Melbourne and Adelaide, connecting several residential areas. Tickets can be purchased onboard the tram or at train stations. Each tram stop has a unique number, and the tram's destination is clearly displayed on the tram's front.



Buses are considered a common mode of transportation in Australia, connecting residential areas to most cities. Riding buses is an excellent way to explore cities, as the destination of each bus is clearly displayed on its front. Maps and instructions regarding bus routes are available at bus stations.


In Australia, there are many taxi companies, and their fare calculation depends on the distance and time travelled. Fares increase in some cities after midnight. The fare is displayed on the meter located near the driver. Payment can be made in cash or by using debit and credit cards. Taxis can also be requested by contacting the company. There are additional fees for this ranging from 4 to 5 dollars. You can also hail taxis on the street by raising your hand when the yellow "Taxi" sign on top of the car is illuminated. All passengers in cars are required to wear seat belts.

Tips and Guidelines

حضور المحاضرات:

Lectures attendance: It is essential for all students at various academic levels to attend lectures regularly. Persistent absence may negatively impact a student's academic performance and could lead to the cancellation of the student's study visa, resulting in the termination of their scholarship according to the relevant laws and regulations.

Exerting effort in studying: All students are required to put effort into their studies and strive to achieve the highest grades. Obtaining mediocre grades may prevent students from transferring between academic programs.

Contact details: Students are required to inform the university and the cultural attaché of any change in their postal address, phone number, or email address. If a student changes their address without notifying the university or the cultural attaché, they will bear full responsibility for not receiving any important correspondence, and they will not have the right to excuse themselves for not informing the university or the cultural attaché of the address change. Students are also advised to check their email daily.

التأمين الصحي:

Health insurance: Ensuring the validity of health insurance coverage throughout the student's stay in Australia is essential. New students must ensure they receive their health cards from the university upon arrival in Australia.

Communicating with the cultural attaché and university international office: Students are advised to communicate with the cultural attaché and the international office at universities regarding matters related to their studies.

Student visa: It is important to check the expiration date of the visa and work on renewing it before it expires. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of the student visa, requiring the student to leave Australia and potentially barring them from returning for three years.


Passport: Ensure that you keep your passport in a safe place and only carry it when necessary. If your passport expires, and a new one is issued, please staple the new passport with the old one containing the student visa. If the passport is lost, the cultural attaché cannot issue a new passport; instead, they can only issue a travel document to return to the Sultanate, which may disrupt the student's travel plans.

Personal safety: It is advised to avoid walking in dark areas late at night. Additionally, it is important to ensure that windows and doors are closed before leaving the house. If a student experiences any issues related to personal safety or theft, they should inform the relevant authorities and notify the cultural attaché as soon as possible.


Cash: Students are always advised to use ATM cards, which can be used in most shops in Australia, and to avoid carrying large amounts of cash.

Home insurance: Home contents insurance is considered essential, especially for students residing in rented houses. Several insurance companies offer home contents insurance services at a low cost.

Car insurance: It is necessary to obtain car insurance. If students are involved in car accidents, they may find themselves obligated to pay large amounts of money for car repairs due to lack of insurance.

Communicating with Omani students and student associations: Students are advised to communicate with their Omani peers and attend events organized by the Omani Student Association. Additionally, they should take advantage of the opportunity to study in Australia to get to know and communicate with students from different nationalities and build diverse social relationships.

Living with host families: Students who live with host families should maintain open communication, respect the rules, and adhere to the routines. Additionally, they should focus on building a good relationship with their host family and adapting to their customs and traditions.
