First of all, you need to pick a course and institute to enroll to. There are certain aspects that you need to consider before enrolling. Some of them are the major, tuition fee, duration of the course, whether or not it is qualified for international students, etc.

The easiest way for students to know where the courses are eligible to apply for student visa is they need to have the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS0)

After applying your course, the institute will assess and consider your application. This process takes time from a few weeks to months depending on the number of applications and the qualification that you are applying for.

You should receive the Offer Letter carefully and make sure to comply all of the criteria. The Offer Letter is a contract between you and the institute/college. It’s all about enrolment conditions, enrolment fees, and the refund payable if you don’t complete your course with that provider. This Offer Letter is will be used to determine if you request for a refund. (In case of not starting/finish course.)
