Interested in further education but not sure what's available or not tempted by the local offerings? www.goodguides.com.au
lets you search for any course, anywhere in Australia (and I mean any
- apprenticeship to PhD). For example, tonight I looked up epidemiology courses: I chose the 'medical' field of study option ('nursing' didn't get any matches, even though you don't have to be an MD to get into the courses), selected all the states (by holding down Cntrl as I scrolled), then chose 'any' mode of study, before typing 'epidemiology' into the course name box. There are four post-graduate epidemiology courses offered in Australia, one by distance.
I then clicked each hit for further information. Here's what you get:

If you subscribe to the service ($22 a quarter) you can access "detailed and exclusive in-depth analyses, ratings and comparisons of institutions and their fields of study; View the FOUR ratings gateways; and View detailed information and profiles on fields of study, courses, campuses, universities and graduate outcomes"
The only annoying thing is that they don't have web links to the course page, so you do have to find the institution site and then search a bit.
On the up side, it's amazing what's out there!
