Student life in Australia v student life in the UK

Posted by Mr.K on 27th February and posted in Australian Universities, UK Universities

This is pretty much a marketing ploy by South Australia in bringing two UK students to explore university life in Adelaide. However it does bring up some useful comparisons.

CIS Student Registry

Posted by Mr.K on 20th February and posted in Uncategorized

The CIS Student Registry is a good no-cost opportunity for students to hear from universities around the world, although heavily biased toward US colleges.


High school students  interested in participating in the Registry will need to submit the appropriate completed forms either on-line and/or by printing the forms and filling in the required information.
