Studying in Australia offers international students many advantages over other study destinations; you can combine multiple courses into a single course load and work up to 40 hours every fortnight in breaks between course periods – which means taking on additional work or even starting your own business to support their studies. A student visa (subclass 500) is available to international students studying courses leading to Australian qualifications with clear progression pathways.
Entry requirements will depend on your desired course and education provider; schools offering vocational education and training (VET) may require relevant prior study or work experience while undergraduate courses with specific prerequisite subjects tend to have varying entry requirements.
If you are non-native English speaker, IDP’s international education specialists can advise on which tests best suit you in order to prove that you have sufficient English language proficiency to succeed in your chosen course. There are dozens of tests worldwide from which you can choose; IDP specialists can assist with finding what tests suit your individual situation best.
As well as meeting academic and English language requirements, applicants will also need sufficient funds for tuition fees, living expenses and travel costs while in Australia. They will also need proof that they have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) from an approved provider.
