English Language Requirements
English language skills are a requirement for (selected countries) for receiving an Australian student visa. IELTS (Academic or General), TOEFL, Cambridge (CAE) and Pearson (PTE) test results are accepted by the Australian Government Department of Immigration & Border Protection (DIBP) for visa purposes.
Institutions set their own English language requirements for course entry, and the English proficiency score needed for your course may be different to the score needed to secure your visa.
