Institutions Application Processing
IDP offices have all the relevant institution
application forms, brochures and handbooks. Counsellors will help
you compile your application and certify the documents supporting
it. Your application will be forwarded to the institution and your
counsellor will follow up for a response.
You will also be invited to meet Australian
education institution representatives who will assess your
application and determine your eligibility for the course.
Moreover, you will also have the opportunity to discuss course
structures and graduate outcomes in our education seminars.
Response from Institution
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. In some cases, Australian education institution
representatives are able to assess your eligibility for the course
and print out an offer letter during your interview at our office
Visa Seminar & Assessment
While your application is being processed by the
institution, you are advised to register for the IELTS. You need
your IELTS result to apply for your Australian student visa. During
this time, you will need to attend the visa seminar where
counsellors explain visa regulations and give advice on assessment
criteria. Your counsellor will then conduct a visa assessment and
help you prepare your student visa file.
Issue of Electronic Confirmation of
When you accept an offer from an institution, you
are required to pay the relevant tuition fee and take an OSHC
(Overseas Student Health Cover) Policy. Payments are made directly
to the institution via bank draft or telegraphic transfer. Your
counsellor will send all these documents to the institution, along
with your acceptance and refund policy form.
On receipt of the payment, the institution will
authorize an eCOE. The eCOE confirms your admission at the
institution and is also a receipt for the fee paid. The eCOE is
required for student visa application.
