How ACIC can help

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

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. We will also assist you with your visa extension in Australia and help with any issues after enrolment. Our consultants will ensure that you enrol in a school which will help you succeed in the future.

For those looking to transfer to a more suitable school, it can be more complicated than expected. There are regulations from both your current school and the Department of Immigration that need to be met. Our ACIC consultants have many successful cases of helping students transfer and they can help you through the whole process. This includes getting an offer letter from the new school, applying for release from your current school, applying for credits and more.

Finally, ACIC can provide you with options that you may not have even considered. Apart from the full range of study choices that we can show you, our Migration Team can also advise on the different visa options available if you are soon to graduate from your current studies.
