There are many benefits in studying in a regional area, take Geelong for example, it is a coastal city and a 20 minute drive from the famous Bells beach in Torquay, access to the Great Ocean road and the 12 apostles. For those that enjoy the outdoors, it is a great experience. For those that enjoy a not so fast pace of living, other benefits include, a quieter lifestyle, less populated areas, lower English requirement and visa benefits to studying in a regional area as opposed to studying in a metropolitan area.
Did you know that Geelong has its own airport at Avalon, just 30 minutes from Geelong? The airport facilitates domestic flights and has now opened up to certain Asian destinations. If you are a student from Asia and study in Geelong, it will provide a more direct flight home during term breaks. Alternatively, during the term breaks, students can visit other states conveniently and explore around. For a number of years Melbourne has been deemed as the world’s most liveable city, but Geelong is the best kept secret as a liveable city. A train ride or driving by car will get you to Melbourne within an hour and 15 minutes (Approximately 80 kilometres).

If you enjoy a busy lifestyle, then the inner city of Melbourne is for you. The nigh life in well renowned with great cafes and coffee venues. Transportation in Melbourne makes it easy to get around. There are better part-time employment opportunities in a metropolitan area as opposed to a regional area, but as long as you’re willing to get your hands dirty, there are jobs available in regional towns. Towns such as Ballarat and Bendigo are more regional based, but at one time, they used to be the hub and the richest part of Victoria during the gold rush error. The great thing about those towns are that they are full of history. People in the regional areas are also very friendly. Again in those types of towns, the night life is much quieter.
