How to study in Adelaide

Because there’s no centralized admissions system in Australia, you’ll need to apply to each institution separately. Although every university will have a different set of entry requirements, you generally need to have completed your secondary school education to a high standard.

Some universities will ask you to complete a TOEFL or IELTS English language test before offering you a place. You can start applying for an Australian student visa after receiving confirmation of your admission.
