With our free assistance, you should be able to meet all the requirements, so you can have a satisfying experience of Australian university life.
So what does it mean to have a recognized upper secondary or year 12 equivalent?
It means that you have completed secondary or high school in your country of origin and have the documentation to prove it.
If you come from Germany, you will have had to received the ABI to get into an Australian university. Australian universities look at the qualification quite favorably, recognising that the ABI is an important piece of documentation for many German students who have matriculated.
Our education agents can tell you how the score on the ABI is compared to an Australian equivalent. So you are in good stead in having the ABI as it is recognised throughout the Australian education system.
If you have an ABI or 4.0 you can study science or journalism
If you have an ABI of 4.2 you can enter the faculty of arts.
To study at an Australian university, you need good knowledge of the English language.
There are over 800 000 words in modern English and over 100 different dialects and accents. The language of academia used in Commonwealth countries like Australia & New Zealand is the same and the IELTS exam is administered by three internationally recognised bodies (two in the UK and one in Australia). There are over 1.2 million people that do the exam annually.
As a future student you would need to do the IELTS Academic test that sits for roughly three hours. The test covers four different areas: writing, speaking, reading, and listening.
Studying for the exam usually takes 3 months and the AA Education Network has a portal that has a list of many of Australia’s English language schools. It is possible to study for the IELTS exam online before you come to Australia.
It is common to come across certain courses that will require specific conditions. These need to be met before you can study at the faculty of your choice.
For example: If your wanting to study music or art at an Australian university, you will have to provide a portfolio of your work. If you want to study engineering or medicine, you may have to sit for an interview.

After completing high school, international students can enrol for higher education in universities if they have the needed ATAR marks.

By all of these considerations, Australian universities stand up well and the best of them are as good as the world’s best.
They also, like the country, have a reputation for friendliness and integrity, not small matters when one is considering devoting some years to your studies in a foreign land.
But by far the most important consideration is the standing of their qualifications – are they respected around the world and will they facilitate your move into a worthwhile career?
Well, the answer is unchallenged, it is affirmative.
Your decision to study at an Australian university is one you will never regret.
