Australia is another popular destination for Indian students to pursue higher education, after Canada and the UK. According to the High Commission of India in Australia, 95,791 Indians have enrolled in Australia's educational institutions from January to April this year.

The large country is the ideal location for both education and a successful career because of the highly regarded courses offered by various colleges and universities as well as jobs with higher-pay scales and better working conditions.

Australia also provides an extended post-study stay-back option for up to 5 years and scholarships and research fellowships to bright students. International students also get a chance to work for about 96 hours in a month, along with their studies, which is an additional benefit.

Here is a list of five jobs that are in huge demand in Australia:
