What are the upcoming intakes in Australia?

Know all about the intakes available in Australia

As a Bangladeshi student applying to Australian institutions, you should know that Australian colleges and universities offer two major intakes. In some universities, intakes may also be referred to as a semester. The two intakes available in Australia are:

  • Semester 1:  Starts late February/early March to late May/early June
  • Semester 2: Starts late July/early August through to November 

Which intake to opt for?

It can get a bit confusing to choose the intake that’s best for you. Consider factors like the availability of your preferred program, your academic records, entrance test scores, acceptance rates, job opportunities and your readiness to join the program whilst making a decision.

While most Indian students prefer the July intake, February intake is equally good for certain programs. We suggest, if you do not have your score cards ready, it’s better to skip the haste and apply for the next intake. 

Here’s an overview of the intakes available for different programs in universities and colleges:
