Armidale differs from most inland regional centres because it has a long established university, transforming it from a rural town to a sophisticated and cosmopolitan small city. Through the University, TAFE, private and public schools the city has become a significant education centre, creating a wider range of jobs and business opportunities than are usually found in the country. It has a well educated and diverse population who stimulate change and demand a high standard of living.
