Study in Australia

Australian education resources

Students from French Polynesia can research and plan their Australian education via www.studyinaustralia.gov.au.

The site, managed by Austrade (the Australian Government’s trade, investment and education promotion agency) has a mobile-friendly design that makes it easy for students to browse courses and institutions on any handheld or desktop device.

Potential students can also interact via social media, access information about scholarships and discover the stories of other students from French Polynesia or elsewhere.

The website includes information about Australia’s states and territories, as well as news and event feeds, in a selection of languages.

Whether you are interested in enrolling in an Australian university or Vocational Education and Training (VET) college, learning English, or attending school, we invite you to visit the website to try out its new features and to learn more about studying in Australia.

Recognition of Australian qualifications

Upon your return after studying, if you wish to obtain an official document in French Polynesia  stating your level of qualifications obtained in Australia, you can familiarise yourself with the procedure for the recognition of these studies through the website of the European Network of Information Centres - National Academic Recognition Information Centres (ENIC-NARIC France): https://www.france-education-international.fr/expertises/enic-naric.
