Plan and Select the Best Way to Study in Australia

It is almost time to apply for admission to an institution of your choice to which you must meet at least the minimum academic requirements. Students need to apply for student visas so that they can work in what little spare time they will have. Student visas allow students to work up to fourty (40) hours fortnightly during the school term. During breaks, the student may work as many hours as they want. The IELTS is the only test accepted by Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship. Australia’s Educators set their own requirements on levels of English language skills on a course-to-course basis.
It is important to note here that IELTS is the most commonly accepted test by Australian education providers. Some course requirements will require a higher score on the IELTS (or other English language test) than that which is required to obtain student visas. Different courses require different levels of English as set by the institutions.
