Trends / Study Abroad

Australia’s Northern Territory has the fastest-growing economy in the country, and the city of Darwin benefited immensely from the influx of businesses. Once a sleepy town in the middle of nowhere, the city has blossomed into a cultural powerhouse that’s half urban, half outback.

 

Rich mineral deposits, prompting an influx of foreigners looking for jobs and a place to study, surround the city. The city boasts a population of roughly 140,000, with more than 60 countries represented among the locals. The rising industries created a demand for IT, engineering and hospitality professionals and aspiring students. Darwin’s growth has created plenty of fun sporting and cultural events throughout the year, and its location in a rugged region of the country means there’s plenty to keep outdoor lovers busy.

 

Nearby Kakadu National Park is a 20,000-square-kilometer jungle home to some of Australia’s most incredible creatures, like crocodiles, kangaroos, wallabies and snakes. Mindil Beach provides a great place to relax after finals, or spend a few hours de-stressing in the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens.

 

Charles Darwin University is the largest college in the city, and likely where international students will complete their studies. The university is a recognized leader in environmental studies, and part of a large system connected to nine other campuses across the Northern Territory and Sydney. Its location also puts it closer to seven major Asian cities than any Australian city, making it a great place to travel from.
