Study in big cities or small regional towns, we can explain the benefits of both to you. There is a lot of factors when considering where to stydy. Those are some factors you shell consider:
· big cities: many schools, usually cheaper due to high competition, great for younger people looking for fun, sharing apartments and looking for after hours job. Public transport can be expensive and reasonable housing close to city is difficult. Many unfair schools, so be careful as what seems to b to good to be true, is just that.
· smaller cities, or towns : less schools, but often with very good programs. Easier accommodation and transport. less competition for work but also less options. Australians like to know you before they give you work, so it may take sometime before you find job.

There is few regional schools, mostly run by TAFE (government founded) offering great conditions, great education.
