5 Growing Destination – Australia is currently the 3 most popular destinations for international students in the English speaking world, behind the United States and UK. Many international students choose to study there because of the cultural diversity, friendly natives and high quality of education.
Admissions at Australian universities are semester wise. There are two semesters when application intake begins for most of the higher education institutions in Australia:
Step 1: Clear your English language exam
If English is not your native language, then you need to take an English language proficiency test. You need to take the IELTS test and keep the results of the tests ready when you are making your visa application.
Think about what you’d like to study, the school, college or university you’d like to attend and the city that suits your lifestyle and budget.
Get an idea of the subject areas that interest you the most. You might also look at some course descriptions, university reviews and their locations. Start a wish list of your preferences and begin to narrow down your selection.
Step 3: Submitting an application to the institution
After you’ve chosen your course and university, it’s time to apply.
If you need to take an English test to qualify for your course, don’t assume you’ll get the grade without practise. In a test such as IELTS you will need good grammar and spelling, as well as a wide range of vocabulary. Even the best English speakers can have bad habits so remember to practise these skills.
Step 4: Accepting an offer letter
Once the university or school receives your application it will be assessed and you will be notified of the result. It can take a few weeks (or longer for postgraduate courses) for your application to be processed.
If your application is successful, you’ll receive a letter of offer and an acceptance form.
If you are accepted for more than one course or school, we’ll help you decide which option is best for you.
Step 5: Apply for a student visa
Now that you have been accepted, it’s time to apply for your student visa. Gather your financial and other documents to apply for your student visa.
Step 6: Get the decision on your visa application
The final decision on your visa application must take about a week or two once your application is complete. You can check the status of your application online as well.
You will get an e-mail notification from Australian authorities once your visa decision is made.
