which state / city should i choose?

I want to do masters in computers (web, software) in Australia, and my husband has completed his graduation in commerce. I and my husband are planning to move Australia but we are confused which state should we choose. Can anyone help us? I have heard that Sydney and Melbourne are well known for crime.

Some parts of just about every City in the world are well known for crime.

Some parts of Sydney and Melbourne are safer than some parts of most other Cities in the world.

What i have found is that Australia tends to publicise more crime than many other countries, and that can cause people to think there is more crime.

Hi there

As of 2016, Melbourne is rated highest for education - It is comfortably Australia’s biggest student city. There are an estimated 270,000 university students in Melbourne. More than a third (91,000) are international students.

The city offers students a wide range of education choices, with 8 universities based in the city.
Melbourne is also Australia’s most livable city because of the cultural entertainment on offer plus good public transport.

If you were looking at Sydney or Perth then they are ranked about in the middle. Thanks.

Sydney & Melbourne appear to be best for employment.

There are many positives to both cities & they rank very high positively worldwide.

And as with any large city, there are some negatives like crime, pollution, traffic congestion... etc.

In my opinion, Perth is the best city in Australia for education. Last year, I have completed my networking study in Perth From AICT (Australian Institute of Commerce and Technology). It is one of the leading institutes in Australia for business, IT and English courses.

I am also planning to do my Masters in Australia, also in Computer Science. In my opinion, Sydney is a great city and a lot of opportunities for IT there, so I am planning to study there.
Do you have some universities in mind? I am looking for advice/recommendation for Computer Science universities in Sydney.

Take a look at courses on offer at QUT. North Brisbane is fairly safe for crime and that Uni has a really good reputation.
