Studying in Australia

Australia is well known for its warm climate, great beaches and exceptional higher education system. It has strong influences from both Europe and Asia, and with the worlds second highest development index, it is a fantastic place to study!

Applying to a Master's in Australia

If you've decided to study a Master's degree at a university in Australia, you will have to gather the right documents to prove that you fit the application requirements. You have to present:

  • Your personal information;

  • Your work experience (only if you have been employed before);

  • An application fee;

  • An English certificate (some countries are exempt);

  • Proof that you changed your name, if you got married (Congrats, I'm sure you looked lovely in the photos!);

  • Your grades, or the grade you got at your final exam.

Of course, all these documents have to be translated in English, by a certified translator.

Australia has no more or less than 5 options for your English certificate. These are: TOEFL, IELTS, C1 Advanced, Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Pearson Test of English (PTE). Applications deadlines aren't country-wide for Australia: it will, ultimately, depend on your university and programme. Generally, October – November is the application period for the first semester, and April – May for the second semester.

YYou can let us do the hard work and simply apply to a university in Australia by using Studyportals Apply – our university application platform. Just select a Master's from the list of our partner universities in Australia, answer a couple of questions about your available budget and your previous degree, and find out how well you fit the programme. Then, you just need to fill in your student profile, including some personal and academic information, and let us apply on your behalf. We'll do our best to get you into the university where you'd like to study.
