Studying in Australia - which city??Hey, I'm planning to study in Australia and I can't really make up my mind on which city to go. I have been talking with different universities from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane so those cities are my main options. I am mostly interested in living in a nice city and being near the surf!! I know there's supposed to be good surf all around australia but I would also like to be in a city which allows you good access to the beach, not necessarily by car.Job opportunities would be nice also. I've heard good stuff about all of them, so it's hard to choose. Any tips would be appreciated, thanks!

1Similar question was recently asked here:
Newcastle is definitely worth adding to your list of places to consider. For surf, beaches, public transit, and city life, Sydney & Newcastle are very hard to beat.

6Sydney is a pretty awesome place to be as a student. Home to University of New South Wales(UNSW) which has incredible student facilities, it shouldn't be hard to make the most of the opportunities over there. In terms of job opportunities, USNW career services have a good hold on opportunities in the Asia Pacific region. I'm aware of a number of students who have landed successful jobs after doing an MBA at AGSM(UNSW). There is also Edith Cowan University in Perth and students from there have great given great reviews. International opportunities are also available and they say the surf is great!
