BEFORE YOU START - Additional Assessment Requirements:
Some countries may require additional assessment requirements, such as a higher Academic IELTS level (6.0 with no band below 5.5), a student interview and the assigning of an agent to support your application and visa. You will be advised upon application if further details are required and we recommend that you wait to sit an IELTS examination if you have not already completed the test.
English Language Proficiency:
The minimum requirement is an Academic IELTS with 5.5 overall and with no sub band score less than 5.0. Aviation Australia accepts these approved English language equivalent tests. Testing must have been completed within 2 years from the enrolment application date. Again, a higher IELTS score may be required.
Aviation Australia do not accept IELTS General Training test results.
Evidence of completion of Year 12, or your country's equivalent, with a pass in Mathematics (at minimum Year 10 or equivalent). Where an applicant does not meet these requirements, Aviation Australia may consider sufficient relevant work experience (documented via a resume and referees) and/or a successfully completed higher level qualification that demonstrates academic suitability.
Aviation Australia uses these equivalent international education achievement levels.
Minimum of 17 years of age:
Applicants under the age of 18 may be accepted where it is demonstrated they will be under approved guardianship arrangements. This arrangement requires the approval of the Department of Home Affairs.
For more information visit Department of Home Affairs – Welfare Requirements for Student Visa Applicants under 18.
Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) Assessment:
Applicants must complete the Genuine Temporary Entrant questionnaire within this application form in order to be considered for enrolment. Before you complete your application you should ensure you have researched your intended course of study and the rights and responsibilities of a student visa holder in Australia.
International Students are required to show evidence that they meet the Department of Home Affairs’ Genuine Temporary Entrant requirement for a student visa.
