Australia to set nationwide English entry requirements for international students
At the moment, Australian universities are able to set their own English standards and requirements to enter their programmes, which often leads to puzzled international students. Students are not sure what the minimum English requirements are and while some institutes have quite low standards, others set their standards ridiculously high.
Now the Australian government is thinking of a solution to those problems by setting the English requirements for Australian institutes to a standardized level.
Students will be able to prepare in better ways and English schools can adapt their programmes; that way it doesn’t matter at which university or college a student wants to study after sitting for an English test, and students can be positive to have the right level of English at their hands.
At the moment it is not quite sure when these standards will be set and how high the required English levels will be. However, it is very likely that colleges and TAFEs won’t require the same language level than universities.
If you wish to study more than 3 months in Australia you will require a Student Visa (Subclass 500). Depending on your country of citizenship and chosen education provider, the requirements for Student Visa (subclass 500) may vary.
Generally, the key requirements include:
- Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) certificate from the chosen university
- General Temporary Entrant (GTE) Statement which aims to measure your integrity and that your intentions are only to come to Australia temporarily to study.
- Evidence of funds for course fees and cost of living
- Evidence of English language proficiency
- meeting the health and character requirements
- proof of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).
You can find all the requirements listed on the Department of Home Affairs website.
If you intend to study for less than 3 months in Australia you do not need to apply for a student visa: You may undertake any course of study for a maximum period of three months on a Visitor visa or Working Holiday visa.
However, there are advantages to study for a Student visa.
If you are studying on a visitor visa you:
- do not have access to Australia’s subsidised student health cover
- are not able to study for more than three months
- are generally not able to change status to an overseas student in Australia
- do not have work permission.
Depending on your chosen studies, you may need to show your previous academic records.
In the unfortunate event that an international student does not meet the requirements for studying in Australia in regards to the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF), we can also provide information on alternative courses that can lead to further study that has an AQF qualification outcome.
Please note: We can translate your academic records for a fee.
Documents for Undergraduate course ( Diploma, Bachelor e.g), or Graduate (Master e.g)
Students applying for a Bachelor or any other undergraduate course need to submit a secondary school certification and transcripts (report cards) of their final examinations.
A school official from your school should produce your certifications. This form should describe you in the context of your entire school experience in relation to the other students in your class. Admission committees want to discover the manner in which you have performed in your own education system. The school report should address your accomplishments and state the chance for success in studies at an university-level.
Students applying for Graduate courses (MBA, MS etc) must submit an official transcript from each university or college that they have attended after secondary school with complete details of the subjects, credits involved and other details such as correspondence courses, diplomas etc.
Many universities ask that the transcript is sent in an envelope and signed and attested across the seal by the registrar.
This is the course of action for each and every higher learning institution that you have attended. Some universities may ask for several transcripts, however, most require only one.
If the transcripts are in a non-English language, then you can get it translated into English by a registered and qualified translator.

All institutions adhere to a legally-enforceable National Code of Practice 2007, which sets first-rate standards and assurances in the areas of syllabus, qualifications of teachers and student facilities.
Institutions must support international students in adjusting to study and life in Australia, achieving their learning goals and achieving the learning outcome of their courses.
When choosing a study destination overseas there are a number of important things to think about before reaching your decision. Australia has a world-class education and training system, which welcomes students from other countries.
Students go to Australia from many countries because of the high standard of education offered and because Australia is an attractive, friendly, beautiful and safe place to live.
The Australian Government and Australian education and training providers have joined forces to establish the Australian International Education Foundation (AIEF) to promote internationally the high quality and standard of education, training and research opportunities which Australia has to offer. The partnership embodied in the AIEF reflects the commitment from all parties to promote and deliver quality education and training services and to pursue excellence in international study and research.
Australian education institutions offer a broad spectrum of courses ranging from English language training at school to advanced areas of post-doctoral work. There are also opportunities for international students, teachers and university staff to undertake study or research in Australia through award and exchange arrangements. Flexible programs of study, which can combine English language courses with study in other fields, are also available to cater to the diverse needs of international students.
Australia compares very favourably with other more traditional destinations considered by international students. In 2018, nearly 800,000 students from over many countries came to study in Australia.
Australia commits to providing quality education and training to international students, but you might still encounter some issues with your course and institutions, the government has enacted a number of laws to ensure your protection at these times and is important that you understand your rights. These laws like ESOS under the Education services for overseas students means the institution is there to help the student in the translation of the environment and with any other issues that might develop. The ESOS legislation provides consumer protection if a student or institution defaults on a course. It protects against a refund of course money to the student or if is not possible a placement into an alternative course through a Tuition Assurance Scheme, for example, according to the Australian government guide for international students.
Institutions must ensure that the marketing materials, like brochures and handbooks are available students and are accurate and up to date.
Before a Confirmation of Enrolment, the institution must prove course related information such as:
- The course content and duration
- The qualification it leads to
- Teaching and assessment methods
- English language requirements
- Previous work experience or educational qualifications required for admittance
- Requirements for course completion
- Course related fees
- The facilities and learning resources related to the delivery of the course
- Student support services
Counseling, orientation, answering questions, academic progress, professional assistance, personal life support, accommodation, information for further studies.

Students Experiences of Studying in Australia
I am currently half way through a degree in International Studies with majors in International Relations and Asian Studies at Flinders University.
Interning overseas, particularly in Asia, before I have even reached my final year of studies gave me practical experience other students do not have. My studies in Australia were enhanced by the knowledge I gained at the Malaysian Cancer Council, like practical independent working skills and the ability to effectively lead projects, one of my responsibilities at the Council.
Apart from these more general benefits, my contribution to Asian Studies classes after returning to Australia was further enhanced by the experience of working in Malaysia, my university papers are more informed and nuanced in their arguments and my Malay language ability has improved. I have also obtained study credit in an elective topic for doing the internship.
Having already completed an exchange program at high school and university level in Malaysia I was prepared to make the most of the experience. It is clear to me that both international study and internships give students skills and experience they cannot acquire at university, putting them years in front of their peers.

Study in Australia News, Updates & Analysis
Recently, quite a number of young professionals choose internship programs in Australia rather than going for long-term traditional courses.
Vocational courses often end up in hands-on experience, such as those in culinary and hospitality sectors.
Short-training programs for English allow students to develop practical skills after which they can either study further or get jobs in the international market.
Teacher training sessions are also similar to such practical programs.
These programs are not so expensive and students don’t require staying in Australia for long.
Often, student exchange programs are not costly. The students need to pay tuition fees that they usually pay in their home country.
If you are looking forward to know more about such short-term practical programs or scholarships to study in Australia, write to our student counsellors.
Every international student who wants to study abroad in Australia is granted a student visa. These courses must be listed on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS courses).
Whether you want to study English abroad or take a Master Degree, you will certainly gain a student status in Australia.
International students granted a student visa abroad in Australia are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week during term time, and even full time during vacations.
Regional universities in Australia offer the chance to study and work in areas that provide the opportunities to migrate permanent after obtaining an university degree. Australia supports those regions with extra points for their skilled migration visa and students have the chance to make valuable contacts for their future work.
Advantages of the Australian education system for international students
Australian education has developed out of a competitive environment with universities and high schools vying for international students. Therefore the educational standards are high and each student is treated with a focus that is not necessarily available in more populated countries.
Care is taken to integrate international students into the educational environment. For example support is available for development of written and spoken English.
Settling Back at Home
Returning home once you’ve completed your studies will pose many challenges. Not only must you begin contemplating your career and other decisions for the future, you must also readjust to life at home after a prolonged absence. Some institutions offer seminars to help address the range of practical and emotional issues faced by international students at this time.
Alumni associations are university networks that aim to maintain ties amongst graduates once they have completed their studies, and support them in their career pursuits.
There may be an Australian alumni association your home country, or you can contact the one in your university in Australia. Here you may find a supportive group of like-minded graduates who have undergone similar experiences, as well as a range of services to assist with your career development.
But does it work?
Libraries are great places. Apart from all those wonderful books and the helpful librarians, it is usually possible to find a quiet corner where you can set up your laptop and study. There will be other people walking around and possibly quite a bit of noise at times, however these distractions are remote, not directly related to you and thus easy to ignore. More importantly, the distractions that do relate to you, the television, your spouse, the kids having yet another fight, have all been left behind.
Libraries are information centres … but you knew that. Modern Australian libraries provide free, wireless internet access to their members so you can still access your university website, your lecture notes and still do the research that modern study demands. If you are overseas, your own local library may offer the same service.
