All of the colleges in Australia are state schools, and I believe that all of them are more or less equivalent. However, some might have specific programs that are stronger than others.
You see, in Australia everyone gets equally good access to education, and the costs of college are kept down. The government funds education, so students with Aussie citizenship don't graduate with the crushing debt that you get in the USA. However, as a foreign student you will have to fund your own education, and I don't believe you are eligible for any loans.
If you can afford to raise this money or your family can pay, you will pay a lot less than you would in the USA. However, foreign students have to pay uni tuition up front.

The University of Melbourne or University of Sydney are probably the best in Australia but it really depends on what type of course you're planning on doing so you might want to do some research into that

The top university here is Sydney University. Sydney University is the hardest, toughest school to get into and in Australia, it's like our Ivy league school :)
It's the best for medicine, veterinary studies etc
but other colleges/uni's are better, depending on what you want to study
for instance, the University of Queensland has an amazing psychology course, better than Sydney's. But it's medicine is crap compared to Sydney Uni.

Bathurst University, but it really does depend what your studying. Bathurst is the best in Australia for journalism, but Sydney or Melbourne is really good too. Newcastle University is the best for technical stuff.
If I were you, I would visit there before you decide if you want to go there to school. It is different than the U.S. Also, the cost of living is expensive.
yea , your chose is nice you can go uk school.
