Getting yourself ready to enrol to study in Australia
Do you have what it takes to be away from your family and loved ones to pursue education, work and live on your own? To some, this is an exciting adventure. But to some, it can be a challenge. How do you prepare yourself for the journey ahead?
For a start, you need to prepare a profile for yourself and organise the documents to support your profile. How do you do that?
You need a CV, a curriculum vitae (CV) which provides information about you. Treat it as your ‘product label’.
What you need to have in your CV:
· Full name, with a picture, preferably and not one of a mugshot
· Contact details – your email, address and phone number
· Academic qualifications – the name of the school, period of attendance, qualification that you have attained
· History of employment or work internship – with the name of the employer, or the host, the position you held, key roles and responsibilities and the period you were engaged in that position.
· Referee – for reference check, at least 2 persons, 1 who gives a good word about your character and 1 on your professionalism at work (please do not state that you will provide a referee upon request).
You would also need to organise and prepare your documents. If your documents are in a language other than English, you need to arrange for the documents to be officially translated. Alternatively, we can assist to find you a National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) approved translator to have your documents translated which will be acceptable by the institution and Department of Home Affairs.

- Valid traveling passport
- High school certificate and transcripts
- Other qualifications with the certificate and transcripts
- Formal English Test results for e.g. IELTS, PTE
- Financial evidence to support your ability to pay for tuition fees and living expenses whilst being overseas.
- Statement of purpose as to why you intend to pursue the programme and why do you choose Australia.
Before anything else, you need to put in some effort in carrying out your own research about Australia, the schools, programmes and the benefits of obtaining an overseas qualification here. You need to also prepare a budget of your own expenses, incorporating your tuition fees, and find out how much can you work to earn some pocket-money on a student visa.
