Australia has the third largest number of foreign students in the world despite having a community of only 23 million. These are strong academic credentials, but Australian institutions are just as highly ranked as the cities that house them around the native land.
Victoria has eight universities and various government-run institutions that facilitate technical and further education. In addition, there is a state Library which is good for researchers undertaking higher education in the area.
