How to study in Brisbane

Every higher-education institution in Brisbane has its own admissions process. As a general rule, you’ll need to have completed your secondary education and meet the academic requirements set out by the university you’re interested in. You might also be asked to prove your English language proficiency by completing an IELTS or TOEFL test.

Once you’ve been accepted onto a program, you must secure an Australian student visa. This document allows you to remain in the country for the duration of your program.
