Language requirements and tests to study in Australia

Semester One


To study in Australia, international students must meet the English language proficiency requirements set by the institution they wish to attend. The level of English proficiency required can vary depending on the course and institution.

Generally, students are required to provide evidence of their English language proficiency through one of the following tests:

  1. International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
  2. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
  3. Pearson Test of English (PTE)

The minimum score required for each test varies depending on the institution and course. In some cases, students may be exempt from the English language proficiency requirements if they have completed previous studies in English or if English is their native language.

It is important for international students to check the specific English language proficiency requirements of the institution and course they wish to attend before applying.
