Some students may need to provide an up-to-date certificate of an English language test as part of the Student Visa application. This will also depend on what course you wish to study.
Good news for those citizens and passport holders of one of the following English-speaking countries: USA, Canada, New Zealand, UK and Republic of Ireland. You will be exempt from this language requirement.
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has set out an additional list of English language exceptions. Check and see if you fall into one of those categories, as you may not need to proof your English proficiency.
For those of you who are required to show evidence of an acceptable language test score, please contact us to further discuss which course you would like to study.
We will advise you with a comprehensive list of providers available to assess your language skills and the valid minimum test score to meet this requirement.
Please, be aware that although the Australian Government sets a minimum language score for each education level (e.g Diploma vs Bachelor), your education provider might have a different language skill level based on the course you’ve chosen. For example, you may have an IELTS score of 6 (IELTS is an international language test). However, some Bachelor’s Degrees require an IELTS score of 6.5 or 7, depending on the institution or the course. In these cases, you might have to retake the exam to reach that grade or look for another course that is within the threshold.
Still unsure if you comply with this condition? Contact us and explain your personal circumstances and the course you have in mind. We’re here to help!
