If you’re thinking about studying abroad, but you’re not sure which country or what field to study, why not consider Australia? With world-class food and wine industries, the hospitality industry in Australia is seeking out newly qualified workers every day, and in this competitive and highly multicultural environment, international students might have an advantage!
Australia is a world education destination and for good reason. With a stable economy and a world-ranked education system, students from all over the world choose Australia over the US or UK as their preferred place to study. There are strong bilateral ties between Australia and South East Asia and in particular many Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) between Australia and Thailand. Strong education and training linkages between the two countries are central to their diplomatic relationship. As a result, many Australian educational institutions have a long history of collaboration and information exchange with Thai organisations.
Australia also boasts a good quality of life, with Melbourne, in particular, being recognised as the world’s most liveable city seven years in a row. The average cost of living is about AU$1,700/month (36,520.25 baht), and the government allows international students to work up to 40 hours per fortnight. International students may also be eligible for scholarships and a post-study work visa, which allows graduates to work in Australia for up to four years. With a vibrant multicultural community, many international students feel right at home in Australia and make many long-lasting bonds with people from a wide range of backgrounds.
Hospitality workers are in high demand! Australian restaurants are even using robots to keep up with the need while they are short-staffed. Qualified and capable new workers in this field are highly desirable to employers, and salaries are competitive as a result. Since many communities are so multicultural, knowing a language other than English also makes you more desirable than candidates who don’t.
The hospitality industry is also highly dynamic and exciting. It’s perfect for people who love an active workplace and are great at adapting to new challenges. If you’re a creative problem-solver and love meeting new people every day, a career in hospitality would be a great fit for you. There is also high career mobility in this industry, so even if you start as a waiter or a barista, you can work your way up to manager and even owner fairly quickly.
As an international student, you can also get experience in your field while studying. Hospitality workers have flexible hours, so you can work around your study periods and lectures. There are also new pathways to visas for hospitality workers that can get you closer to permanent residency. And with the skills you develop in the workplace, such as teamwork, self-management, communication, and customer service, you’ll be in high demand anywhere in the world!
