Offer Letter is a documented testimony issued by the education provider with whom the student wishes to enroll. The candidate needs to be furnished with all the documents about educational qualifications in the past.
The education provider may cross-check the documents for genuineness and make referral checks before considering the candidate for an interesting course. Only once the provider deems the pupil fit for the program considering educational relevance and motive, it issues the Offer Letter. The provider may ask for additional documents to issue a Letter of Offer.
The Offer Letter acts as a "green signal" for students to make further arrangements.
Please note that the Offer Letter does not guarantee admission and can be withdrawn at any time without any prior notification. The Offer Letter stands withdrawn automatically once the seats for that program get filled.
Our Qualified Education Admission Counselor (QEACs) can help you speed up admission in your desired course.
Here are few list of documents you need to include:
Students from English-speaking nations do not need to prove their English language proficiency to get admission in any program in Australia; however, on the other hand, students from non-English-speaking countries may need to furnish an updated certificate of English language test along with the application.
The English language requirement also depends on the program/course/provider you have chosen; while some courses and providers ask for overall seven bands, at least, others may be okay with 5.5, 6 or even 6.5 overall.
To have detailed information on English language requirements for the program and provider chosen by you, get in touch with us and we'll help you know what exactly your requirement is.
At the time of lodgment, you must have funds sufficient enough to cover the tuition fees, travel expenses and living costs for the duration of stay.
Financial requirements depend on various factors like the country of the applicant, the course you choose, the education provider, lifestyle, etc.
While components like tuition fees and travel may vary a little, other components like personal expenses may vary from individual to individual. Your education consultant is the best person to tell you the estimated financial requirement.
Interested candidates are encouraged to refer to the Document Checklist Tool developed by Unicampus to know more about the documentary evidence of finances.
In any case, our experienced counsellor can help you get the right estimate of financial requirements based on program, provider and area chosen.
COE is an official document issued by the Government which confirms that the candidate has accepted a place in a course, and has paid tuition fees and OSHC premium.
The student automatically receives COE once the provider verifies International Student Acceptance and Payment Agreement.
Student must enroll in a CRICOS-approved course to receive COE.
Per the integrity measure of the Australian Student Visa program, the Government asks for proof that the student's intentions to stay in Australia is temporary and he/she will return to his/her homeland upon completion, of the course. The same stands for any accompanying partner or guardian.
You are required to write a Statement of Purpose (SoP) to showcase genuine intention to study.
The SoP along with other factors like the financials of the candidate is assessed by the case officer who then deems if the candidate meets the GTE requirement or not. The candidate may need to go through a personal interview if the case officer asks for it.
To get this step right, the student must be convincing enough to prove his/her genuineness to study and must prepare all other documents perfectly.
All Australian Student Visa applicants must undergo a medical health examination. Your health requirements depend upon the following factors:
Costs of medical examinations are to be borne by the applicant with no refunds in case of refusal. For detailed information on the types of medical examinations required, please visit the website of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
You may be asked to provide a police clearance certificate when applying.
The requirements may be different if you've lived in multiple countries in the past. Our registered MARA agents and qualified counsellors will be able to help you with all you'd need in a police certificate to apply for a student visa for Australia.
As an applicant, you must have OSHC for the duration of your intended stay in Australia.
You cannot get a visa without adequate health cover. It is mandatory for all applicants wishing to study in Australia.
Of course, as the name suggests, the Budget Policy will cover you from any potential medical or hospital expenses that you may incur during your stay in Australia. Depending upon your policy, a certain percentage of pharmaceuticals and ambulance services may also be covered.
We can help you save a lot of money in individual/family OSHC. You can buy it through us at affordable prices. Get in touch with us to get your OSHC instantly.
As mentioned above, your cost of living will entirely depend upon your lifestyle - including the area you live in, whether you are living alone or on sharing basis, how you commute to/from college, etc.
