IEC counselors help students in admission process by advising them of required documentation and assisting them with the necessary application forms and evidences. IEC counselors work closely with admission staff at institutions and help resolve unusual queries for our students.
Your application will be forwarded to the institution and your international education counselor will follow up for a response. You will receive a response from the institution within 4-8 weeks of your application being submitted. When an institution offers you a place of study, you will receive an offer letter.
Through its continued commitment and diligence, IEC has helped scores of students to select career oriented courses and move ahead on their way to success.
While your application is being processed by the institution, students are advised to register for the IELTS. Students need IELTS result to apply for your Australian student visa. During this time, students will need to attend the visa seminar where counselors explain visa regulations and give advice on assessment criteria. IEC counselor will then conduct a visa assessment and help you prepare your student visa file and lodge it with Australian High Commission.
Students traveling to Australia for studies need to apply for an appropriate student visa, as there are different visas offered to different students. A primary or secondary school student’s visa is different from the visa offered to a student of vocational education or a student of postgraduate research. Thus one should carefully analyze as to the category they fit in.
To begin with, a student must be accepted for a full-term study in a registered course by a registered organization (under Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students- CRICOS). Besides submitting the essential documents at the time of applying for the visa, one must fulfill the following criteria to be eligible for a student visa:
- Good Academic background
- Sound Financial capacity (ability to pay for the air fare, tuition fee and living costs)
- Proficiency in English
- Be of good character
- Be of sound health
- Have a health insurance through the Overseas Student Health Cover
