Prior to commencement, international students intending to travel to Australia must secure a student visa or temporary graduate visa. Where a student has received a CoE and visa but cannot travel to Australia, the course may commence online. Students may choose to undertake the course online outside Australia with no visa and no Certificate of Enrolment (CoE), to build a bank of AQF credits (#QualBanking) before applying for a student or temporary graduate visa.
Students will submit a pre-training assessment review to assess if the course is appropriate for their interests and abilities, plus an LLN test to determine learner needs. Additional requirements will be arranged at this point.
