From High School

Helping students get from Eh to Oz since 2002!

Study in Australia

Many of OzTREKK’s programs are offered at a postgraduate level, but what many don’t know is that Australian universities have professional undergraduate programs allowing graduates to practice medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, law and more. 

If you’re interested, you’re in the right place!

This section was created specifically for students graduating high school, as well as for high school counsellors and for parents looking for more information.

On this page, you’ll find information about the following topics:

  • Programs – Popular professional programs and more (we’re always working to add more!)
  • The Application Process – How this whole thing works
  • Student profiles – Meet OzTREKK students who have applied directly from high school
  • Why Australia – What students have to say about their time in Oz
  • Counsellor Trips to Australia – We love hosting trips to Australia
  • Student Reviews – What do students say about their universities and programs?

 

Since 2002, we’ve officially partnered with 13 universities in Australia and one university in New Zealand. Our goal is to make admissions and predeparture a breeze for students, counsellors, and university partners alike!

Having lived and travelled in Australia and New Zealand, our team is able to guide students based on firsthand experience. We work closely with our uni partners to ensure the entire process—from application to offer to landing in Australia—is as smooth as possible. Our services are 100% free, as we are funded by our university partners.

If your program of interest isn’t featured here, don’t worry. Just send us an email and we will be happy to help!

Programs

Unlike Canada, Australian universities allow students just leaving high school to enter professional degrees like those listed below. OzTREKK’s Australian university partners are highly ranked across all global ranking systems and offer internationally recognized, accredited programs taught by world-renowned professors.

Students can study in Australia then practice in Canada!

How it works

Personalized Counselling

What is the first step? Get in touch! We recommend scheduling a call to discuss plans and concerns. Even you’re considering other countries, we encourage you to let us know and we will try to develop a strategy with you to ensure you achieve your goals!

Application Processing

We manage the entire application process from beginning to end! Once a student has filled out an application, an OzTREKK admissions officer walks the student through every step and provides them with the entire list of documents required to complete their application.

Predeparture Prep

Received an offer? Congratulations! Your OzTREKK admissions officer will also guide you through the acceptance and predeparture processes, including topics like financing, student visas, health insurance, accommodation, and more!

Why Australia?

Why consider studying in Australia? We could list a million reasons, but we’ll stick to the top reasons our students claim helped them make the decision to head Down Under!

Incredible universities & programs

For students, Australia pretty much has it all, which is why it has more than 600,000 international students, making it one of world’s most popular foreign study destinations. One of the advantages or studying in Australia is that many programs offer multiple intakes throughout the year, so students can get started earlier. Here is the most typical cycle of the Australian academic calendar:

January – May: Applications start
May – August: Interviews, if applicable
September – November: Offers
September – January: Predeparture preparation
January – March: Programs start

 

Multicultural cities

Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth… Australia is home to some of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in the world.From art and music to sports and recreation, Australia has it all! Most OzTREKK students are thrilled upon arrival, and don’t take long to settle comfortably into their new surroundings.ere else. A wonderful climate. A reasonable cost of living. Exotic travel experiences. Incredibly friendly people.

 

Location, location, location

Beach sunrises at Surfers Paradise on the east coast, and beach sunsets at Rottenest Island on the west coast. During their in-between times, OzTREKK students manage to see and do it all, with many students choosing to travel and sight-see all over the country. After all, it’s what Australia is famous for!

 

Student-friendly

Because Australia is such a popular destination for international studies, all Australian universities have designated departments designed to assist all international students—from helping them locate a great place to live to helping them solve a personal problem.

Most universities also have countless student clubs and societies, gyms, and places to eat. There’s no excuse not to get involved!

World-class Universities

OzTREKK represents 14 world-class universities in Australia. OzTREKK’s university partners are highly ranked across all global ranking systems and offer internationally recognized, accredited programs taught by world-renowned professors.

Counsellor Trips

When we can, we like to invite our high school counsellors to explore Australia and its universities. These “Trips to Australia” are the best way for you to learn more about Australian universities’ professional and non-professional options. Meet faculty, tour campuses, and meet current Canadian students.

 

Student reviews

“I already greatly appreciate having you in my corner on this.”

As an aside, I'm very impressed you were able to compile all of the required course outlines on my behalf. Truth be told I was dreading having to dig back into old binders and professor websites to track all of those down. I already greatly appreciate having you in my corner on this.

“They were great with preparing me to move”

I really appreciated how helpful and knowledgeable the staff were. Made applying so much more of an easier and comfortable process! They were great with preparing me to move, they offered me a range of services however I was already fairly set up in Australia and didn't need their services that much! Greatly appreciated all their offers to help however.

“OzTREKK provided invaluable information and I would not have been able to get to where I am without them.”

My experience with OzTREKK was excellent. From the initial request for more information about Australian universities, to navigating the application process, and gaining advice about accommodations and life in Australia. OzTREKK provided invaluable information and I would not have been able to get to where I am without them. It was all excellent, especially having the students meet up in Canada before moving over.

“I feel like Oztrekk went above and beyond. ”

Oztrekk was amazing! The pre-departure resources removed a lot of the ambiguity around the administrative tasks associated with the process (visas, transcripts, health check etc.). I also appreciated all the opportunities to build connections with other students, both in my year and in years above, such as with the facebook groups, meet-ups etc. Also, [OzTREKK] was a huge help for settling in before classes started.  Finding accommodation was slightly stressful, but I think tha...

“…great walk-through of what must be done to enroll”

I loved the quick emails, no application fee, great walk-through of what must be done to enroll, and the amazing organization of what is required by each school, their tuition, the deadlines, the cost of living, etc. I think it went quite smoothly- there was never a lack of communication which made it simple and less stressful to choose a school and commit. Also, with the full transparency of the costs and what is required, it makes the decision making process with parents much smoother as well.
