Although we can never guarantee that you will be accepted into a college or that your visa will be approved, we will always do our best to make it happen.
Step 1: Deciding to study in Australia
We know that Australia seems to be a pretty far away place sometimes, and the decision to study here can be difficult because your will be far from your family and friends; however, Australia does have a lot to offer, and that’s why you’re probably still reading this.

Once you’ve made up your mind – and that’s the hardest step – the rest becomes very easy and simple.
Step 2: Choosing the right degree and the right institution
Ok! So you’ve made up your mind and decided to study down under. Now what? Now, you need to decide what you would like to study and where. Unless you are coming to school here, you have two main options: Vocational Education and Training (VET) or University. For more information about Vocational Education in Australia, check out this link, and for university education check this.

Once you have chosen where to study, it’s time to start applying.
Step 3: Sending applications
After browsing through the list of providers we work with, you can fill in the attached application form or we can do it together over the phone or chat. You will also find a list of documents you will need to provide alongside your application. In general, we allow you to apply through us to three providers at any given time. In case an application is withdrawn or refused, we will help you apply for another. We will advise you on the best colleges or universities to apply to based on the factors you choose here.
Step 4: Applying
After sending your application, you typically need to wait a few weeks before getting an answer. While some providers will accept you based on your file, others may request further information. Once the institution accepts your application, you will get a Letter of Offer (LoO) from them. This letter details everything about the program you were accepted to including course fees and other details. Once you accept this offer and pay the associated fee, the provider will send you a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE), which is a very important document for your visa application.
Step 5: Applying for your Student Visa
With your CoE in hand, it’s time to head over to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) website to find out what documents will be needed for your student visa. Visa requirements vary depending on the level of your country. Of course, Edustralia is there to help you all the way.
Step 6: Getting your visa and planning your trip
When you receive your student visa, we will get in touch with your education provider and start planning for your arrival to make it as smooth as possible for you. We will also help you in acquiring suitable accommodations for your first few days. This time would be the best time for you to do as much research as possible about the location of your provider as well as your surroundings so that you don’t feel completely out of place.
Step 7: Arriving to Australia
Before you leave your country, we will get in touch with you and go through everything you need to do before you set foot on the plane. Once you arrive, we will be at your service as your agent; you can contact us any time, and we will do our best to provide you with up to date information and help.
