Entry Requirements For Australian Higher Education
Entry requirements for schools in Australia vary, depending on the educational institution and program. Considerations include the level and content of study already completed, whether in Australia or in another country.
Minimum academic requirements in Australia almost always include a sufficient level of English language proficiency. English language skills are required in order to receive a student visa, and the only test accepted by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship is the IELTS. Students must not only consider the Australian government’s entry requirements for a student visa, but also the specific educational institution’s requirements for enrollment.
Students who do not meet a school’s entry requirements may enroll in either a secondary school or a Foundation Studies education course to prepare for further study in Australia. A number of English language courses are also offered with starting dates throughout the year. Consult the admissions office of the educational institution at which you would like to study for more details.
