International students who are ready to study in Australia must first apply to an institution for admission. For that, it is essential to know about the application cycle to study in Australia.
Admissions to universities in Australia are semester-wise. For most higher education institutions in Australia, typically, there are two semesters when application intake begins:
Semester 1 is scheduled from February to June.
International applicants are subject to December deadlines.
Semester 2 goes from July to December.
International students can submit their applications till May.
Some of the Australian universities have a trimester system. The semester starts in January, May, and September. November, March, and June, respectively, are deadlines for the same.
In addition to choosing when to apply, many steps involved in reaching Australia:
- Choosing the right course and institution
- Preparing the application package and submitting it to the institution
- Accepting an offer letter
- Paying tuition fees and receiving an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE)
- Applying for Student Visa (Subclass 500)
You need a range of documents like school marksheets, transcript, work experience letters (if applicable), and more to get an offer letter from the institute. And while applying for a student visa, you should have met health requirements, acceptable OSHC, evidence of sufficient funds, and more. iOverseas guides you through every step, from researching your options, preparing application package to departure preparations.
