Study in Regional Areas in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

In recent years, more and more international students prefer to study in Regional Areas in Australia. The Australian government reported an increase of 10% of international students choosing to study in the Regional Areas in the year of 2018. Most of the students were reportedly from China, India, Nepal, Malaysia, South Korea and the United States of America.

Not only that,  Regional Australia Institute reported that about 32,000 Australian millennials moved away from big cities and started to live in the Regional Area from the period 2011 to 2016. 

But where are Regional Areas and why both Australian millennials and international students prefer to stay and study in these areas? 

List of Regional Areas in Australia

Regional Australia includes all of the towns, small cities and areas that lie beyond the major capital cities. According to the Australian Government, the areas below are the listed regional areas.

State

Areas

New South Wales

Everywhere except Sydney, Newcastle, the Central Coast and Wollongong

Northern Territory

Everywhere in the territory

Queensland

Everywhere except the greater Brisbane area 

South Australia

Everywhere in the state

Tasmania

Everywhere in the state

Victoria

Everywhere except Melbourne

Western Australia

Everywhere except city of Perth and surrounding areas

Why Study in Regional Areas in Australia?

1. Low Cost of Living

Bigger cities such as Melbourne and Sydney have a very high cost of living due to the expensive accommodation. According to news.com.au, the cost of living in Sydney, New South Wales  is AUD$ 2,681.48 while Hobart, Tasmania is only AUD$ 1,208.33. The cost difference between these 2 cities is AUD $1,473.15. So, studying in the Regional Area will definitely save you some money and you can use that to explore Australia while on summer break.

2. Enjoy the nature of Australia

You will get away from the busy lifestyle in the cities and you will enjoy the breeze of Australian beaches. You will not be pressured and stressed to follow their hectic life because you will be able to study in a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. You will be surrounded with nature yet equipped with advanced city facilities. Now it is understandable why Australian millennials chose to stay in the Regional Areas.

3. Migration Opportunities

Graduates with a bachelor or higher qualification from a regional campus of a registered institution will be eligible for an additional 2 years in Australia on a post-study work visa. This will  eventually lead to an extra 5 points on the Immigration Points Tests, which may boost your opportunity to gain Permanent Residency in Australia. To know more about the post-study work visa, contact us now!

Top Universities to Study Filmmaking in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

Do you smile, laugh, and cry while watching films such as Avengers, Wonder Woman and the Harry Potter movies series? Are you curious why these films managed to capture the heart of many? Not only that, you also have the passion to make films one day and are passionate to see your masterpiece in the cinema or you want to be a great YouTuber that produces inspiring video content?

If you answer all yes, you can start your journey  by studying filmmaking.

In this article we will cover the stages of filmmaking, the entry requirements and recommended universities to study this course in Malaysia.

What is Film Making?

Filmmaking is the process of producing a film. It  is about producing a story that makes a long-lasting impact that touches and captures the heart of audiences.  There are 5 stages to create a film and these stages are not limited to only making film but it can also be used in making videos such as TV shows, Youtube videos and even wedding videos.

1. Development

The stage is where a screenplay is written while the financial budget is discussed and obtained. This is also when the script and storyboard are being produced.

2. Pre-production

Production crew that are highly experienced will be gathered, actors and actresses will be cast and the location of shooting will be scouted. This is very important to make sure that the shooting days will run smoothly so no pending or overshooting will happen to avoid over budget.

3. Production

This is D-Day. All the crews and the cast will come together for the shooting. This can go for months and years depending on the budget of the film. The raw footage will be collected and stored for post-production. The crew and cast will listen attentively to the film director to ensure the outcome of the film.

4. Post-production

The images, sound and necessary visual effects will be edited. The editors must understand the film directors’ mindset in order to edit the raw footage according to the script and the idea of the directors.

5. Distribution

The film will be advertised in social media, screened in cinemas or distributed to platforms such as Netflix and HBO. 

Necessary Skills to be in Filmmaking Industry

Communication Skills

You need to have a very good communication skill because you will be working with actors and actresses, the production crew and everyone who is involved in and outside the film set. This is crucial to ensure the exact order is being delivered to avoid any miscommunication which may result in a film failure.

Creative

Your creativity juice must be flowing all the time. With so many films and movies created, your film must not be the same with others or you will have problems with copyright issues. Not only that, usually during the filming day, there are so many rising challenges that need to be overcome such as weather forecast, the tardiness of crews or sometimes the absence of actors. It depends on your creativity to overcome these problems to avoid delays in filming. 

Technological Expert

As we are in Industrial 4.0, more advanced technology is being produced every year to create high definition films. You must constantly update yourself with new camera gears that will be used in the production. You must have high technological knowledge in every area such as camera, lighting, framing, and sounds.

Decisive

Problems will arise during production and post-production. You must be decisive to solve the problems. An example of a problem is one file of raw footage is corrupted and you are required to make a decision whether or not to continue editing or reshoot that particular scene. If editing is continued without the scene, you must change the whole script but if you choose to reshoot, you must allocate a new budget for that. Whatever the decision is, the outcome must be the best for that film.
