I want to study abroad in Australia but how do I know which university to choose?

I'm double majoring in International Studies and Chinese. I want to go to a university that offers advanced level Chinese (I'll be going into my 3rd year of Chinese when I plan on studying abroad). I also want to go to a university that offers courses that follow an International Studies program requirements. I want to either study for a semester or a year. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions? My university doesn't offer any direct study abroad programs with a university in Australia.

    I can help you out.

    What is an international studies program requirement?

    Anyway pretty much all the big Australian universities offer Chinese and some form of international studies. You'll probably need to consider location, size, student life etc etc.

    Have a look at Australian National University, they've got a very good Asian languages program.

    Just curious, if you want to study abroad whilst learning Chinese, why wouldn't you go to China?

    Thanks. I'll check it out. Well, I only plan on studying abroad in China for summer terms. I have one summer down and another one to go but for the fall/spring I want to study somewhere different.

    Check to see how the Australian semesters work with summer semesters in the US. Most Australian students finish exams for semester 1 in late June and resume classes in July (and finish in October/November).

    All of the group of eight universities should have good Chinese programs. It might be worth considering where you want to live - ANU has a great asian studies program, but it's in Canberra, which is suited to people who like bushwalking and the outdoors rather than those who prefer cities.
