I’m currently overseas and want to study in Australia

My Questions and Issues

I am a high school student from overseas – should I drop out or complete my high school before coming to Australia? What options are available and is the visa application complicated?

I have completed high school from overseas and want to apply for university studies. Am I qualified for direct entry and are English test scores required (e.g., IELTS)? What happens if my English test results are not high enough?

I am in my early year (s) of post-secondary education from overseas and want to transfer to Australia to continue my study. What are the entry requirements and will my completed subjects be recognised by Australia universities so I can reduce the study duration? I may also plan to migrate to Australia in future – what courses should I consider?

I am in my final year(s) of post-secondary education from overseas (e.g. bachelor’s degree or diploma). There seems to be lots of options ranging from vocational courses and PQP to Master by Coursework, Master by Research and PhD. What are the differences and how do I choose?

I would like to apply for scholarships. To be awarded a scholarship not only helps reduce my family’s financial burden, but also is an advantage to boost my resume – what are the chances to obtain a scholarship for international students?

What about my student visa application? What are GTE checks and how should I best prepare for this important task?

What about airport-pick up and accommodation – can ACIC help me settle in Australia?

How ACIC can help

As the entry requirements and application procedures are different across each institution, our expert education consultants can guide you through every step and based on your situation, we will design the best study options tailored for you.

Australia offers a range of pathway opportunities for students to get into universities, regardless if you have completed high school OR if you are in your first or final year of a bachelor degree. Our consultants will provide you with the latest course information, saving you from researching, and help you compare courses according to your needs. We will then help you lodge and follow up your school application until enrolment. If scholarships are available, we will let you know and help you apply as well.

However, to be granted an offer letter from a school does not guarantee a student visa. One student visa refusal can affect all future visa applications. As such, one of the most important services that we provide is to assist with your student visa application. Our experienced consultants will assist you in preparing all the required visa documentation as well as help you to apply and monitor the progress of your visa application until it is successfully granted.

ACIC’s service continues after your visa is granted. If required, we can help arrange your accommodation and airport pick-up. And after you arrive in Australia, ACIC will designate one of the counsellors to follow up with you in regards to your studies and life in Australia. You will receive a free orientation designed to help newly arrived students to settle in Australia and free on-going support should you require any assistance for your studies and future plans.
