it all depends what you are looking for in a uni. All uni's have their good points and not so good points .
I've never heard of the Universities you have listed (maybe cos I'm a Queensland girl lol) Anyway if you love the gold cost Griffiths University and Bond University are there but I can't really tell you much about them.
Only thing I can suggest is to do as much research on each uni, what accommodation is available either on campus or off and maybe see if the degree from that Uni has international recognition? (not sure if that is relevant)
Best of luck - when you have an option as wide as you do it can become quite hard.
Thanx bella, I love your name by the way..
well, those Universities are the top of melbourne, perth and Sydney.. all of the ones I picked are recongnized internationally, lol, that's REALLY important, me being not AUSTRALIAN and all.. hehehehe
I've looked into Griffith already, and it seems good, but, there are WAY too many Uae nationals over there.. and well, I am not really looking for another dubai.. I want a different experience besides the good university 4 a better education..
I don't know, maybe if all goes really bad and i've got no other choice, I'll go for Griffith!
Thanx for your post hun.. means a lot!

The university has a really strong international focus and a good rep for areas such as business, technology, and engineering. I am very happy with it and the courses they offer in my program area are of much more interest than what was offered at other universities with more prestige in Melbourne (eg Melbourne and Monash universities).
If you have any specific queries, just let me know. Am yet to meet anyone from the UAE there in my classes - lots of Thai, Indian, French, Chinese and Japanese students though! A real mix, especially since I'm doing International Business (actually taking the semester off).
Hawthorn is a farily pricey area as far as housing goes - I guess it depends on if you want to get your own accommodation or live on campus etc.
I don't think Aussies care so much where you study, but rather care what you study - if that makes sense/

Monash is the easiest because most of the campuses are situated in places like Caulfield, Clayton, Peninsula etc where accomodation is pretty cheap and easy to come by (especially in clayton).
Also, if you are really really strap for cash after buying all your textbooks and you wake up one tuesday morning to find you have no food in your cupboard, Monash Clayton holds a free pancake breakfast every tuesday.
If you go to Melbourne University, the accomodation is going to be expensive, same with any university in a major city, be it Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, etc. The upside is that you're getting a more prestigious degree (Except if you're an Engineer, industry doesn't like hiring melbourne engineering graduates) so if that's what you're looking for, you can afford to live on $20 of food a week and call 1800 reverse everytime you make a phonecall as well as washing your hair sparingly to save money on shampoo and wearing the same set of clothes 3 weeks in a row. *ahem* ><
Deakin University....uh....Very cheap....accomodation is cheap....uh..
THIS is selling you Melbourne
Melbourne and it's suburbs are pretty peaceful.
People here are very polite, multicultural and open minded.
The food, especially international food, is exquisite (because of all the immigrants).
If you like the arts, there are concerts, dances, plays, recitals, etc held every single week in the city.
The public transport isn't terrible, you can go anywhere using public transport
there's lots of space, none of that living on top of eachother crap.
It's pretty clean here
There are about 20 markets held around melbourne (as well as Queen Vic Market inside Melbourne) every weekend so you can buy cheap food)

I'm at University of Western Sydney (UWS). I'm studying law and social science. I'm pretty sure the tourism management degree is at the Penrith Campus. Its a beautiful campus.
UWS has six campuses across Western Sydney. There's campuses at Parramatta, Bankstown, Campbelltown, Blacktown, Penrith and Hawkesbury.
Uni life is fantastic, especially if your living on campus. I have a few friends that live on the Bankstown campus, and they say its like living with another huge family. The university is pretty good to its student. The teachers are fair and really nice. Sometimes they go out of their way to help you. Its a really friendly university, there is people from all different nationalities and all ages.
Each campus kinda has a "focus" school of discipline and they each have a different personality. Like, Parramatta has most of the Business, Economics and law students so its sort of a "serious" campus. Campbelltown teaches medicine and the rest of the law students. I don't really know what else Campbelltown has. Penrith, Hawkesbury and Bankstown has policing, social sciences, arts, communications, psychology, engineering, so they are the "fun" campuses to be at. You never know whats going to happen there!
I don't know what sort of info your looking for about the uni but feel free to ask!
