2. Visa application fee
3. Passport photographs (size 4x6)
4. Passport with a validity period of more than 7 months when entering Australia
5. Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (once your counsellor has applied to institutions for you)
6. IELTS result (your counsellor can book your place in an English test)
7. Academic and work experience documents
8. Statement of purpose
9. Evidence of financial ability (tuition fees, living expenses, expenses for dependents, return airfare).

* For detailed visa application checklist, please speak to your counsellor.
