Australian Government Scholarships for Graduate program 2018

Upon graduation from a bachelors awarding institution, it seems to be the end of the way for most students because at that point onwards, they have to pick up every bit of their responsibilities. Picking up responsibilities is not just a kid thing. It requires money to run all these; foot the bills, pay mortgages and much more and these makes most graduates to be job seekers after graduating high school instead of forwarding their education.

But come to think of it, education is not free neither are bills paid with a hug. Well, things can get any worse in Africa where unemployment is the order of the day and crime is the new hobby. The available jobs one can possibly see are mostly competitive so requires one to be one foot ahead by acquiring more formal and informal education and skills in order to stand out.
