Living & Studying in Darwin

One of the best things about living and studying in Darwin is the friendships students develop when they start to experience all the cultural and social opportunities on offer.Located just four hours flying time to either Sydney or Singapore, Darwin’s picturesque and accessible location is just one of the many benefits of studying here.

About Darwin

Darwin is the smallest of Australia’s major cities, making it easier to travel around the city.Our tropical climate means there are plenty of exciting events and activities to participate in throughout the year. Darwin is a diverse and friendly international community from more than 145 different countries. We have strong family and business connections with China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Nepal, the Philippines, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.

Students feel safe and ‘at home’ here - many international students have relatives in Darwin or know people who have already studied here. Although English is the official language in Darwin, 24% of people speak languages other than English at home (over 385 different languages, 155 of which are Australian Indigenous languages).
