Step-by-Step Guide to Study in Australia

You want to come and study in Australia but don’t know where to start?

With world class study options and breathtaking opportunities for adventure and growth, Australia really is the place to be.

Let us take you through the steps to study in Australia:

STEP 1: Do your research

Explore 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. Also determine how long you would be prepared to study for. Read reviews and narrow down your selection.

STEP 2: Make contact with an educational professional

When you are ready, reach out to a representative at the college/school of your interest. Ask them all of the questions you have in mind, express any concerns and get clear on what they offer and whether their options suit your needs. If the person you deal with is patient, friendly and knowledgable without seeming ‘pushy’, you are off to a good start. There are also Australian education agent’s available, independent of the college/school to assist your journey should you need.

STEP 3: Make your application

Apply to study at an Australian education provider either directly or through an Australian education agent. Our application process is paper-free and can be completed here.

STEP 4: Accept your offer

If your application is successful you will receive your Letter of Offer from your education provider. After you accept the offer and pay your deposit, you will be issued your CoE (Confirmation of Enrolment). Ensure you meet language, financial, genuine temporary entrant, academic, vaccination and Overseas Health Cover requirements to proceed to the next step.

STEP 5: Apply for your Student Visa (subclass 500)

Visit the Department of Home Affairs website here to start your online application & pay the fee
This link is also very helpful in explaining the process and requirements of the 500 Student Visa

STEP 6: Practice your English skills

Be sure to brush up your English skills to ensure you can keep up with what your lecturers are saying, especially if English is not your first language. Try watching things like TV news and talk shows, reading books or listening to podcasts where the English is more formal. It’s also a good idea to learn some of the local slang.

Once your visa is approved, book your flights & we will see you in beautiful Australia!
