Applying

Once you’ve cleared the English proficiency tests, the next step is to apply to the university. The academic requirements (including evidence of English language skills) you need to study in Australia will vary depending on the level of education you want to study. Institutions can have different entry requirements, so read the course information on their website carefully and contact them to ask for advice

The application process involves a number of steps. Applying for a course normally requires the following documents:

  • Certified copies of your academic history to date, including high school results/certificates and any studies undertaken after high- school (often called post secondary studies). If you have undertaken any post secondary studies, you will need to provide your academic transcripts of subjects studied and any completion or graduation certificates with your application
  • Certified copies of your English language proficiency (e.g. IELTS, PTE or TOEFL or evidence that the medium of instruction in your past studies has been English). All institutions have individual, specific English language proficiency requirements for entry into their courses – these standards vary greatly depending on the course you choose
  • A certified copy of your passport
  • A statement of purpose (SOP) outlining the reasons for choosing the course, the institute and future career plans
  • For research applications, a copy of your research proposal will also be required

Once your application has been received by the institution, it will be assessed by the admissions office to determine if you meet both the academic and English Language requirements for your chosen course. The possible outcomes of your application are:

  • A full Letter of offer confirming that you are eligible for direct entry into your chosen course
  • A conditional letter of offer confirming that you are eligible for entry to your chosen course, pending the provision of further information to the admissions office.
  • Or a decline letter if you don’t  meet the academic requirement and other criteria
