FAQ: I’m thinking about studying in Melbourne. What should I do next?

With so many courses on offer, you’ll need to narrow down your study options by looking at what is important to you.

The general process is:

  1. Select your course,
  2. Apply via your chosen institution or an Australian education agent,
  3. Process your application,
  4. Apply for a visa

Before identifying the course for you, ask yourself:

  • Does the topic interest and excite you? Is it something you want to learn more about?
  • What careers are possible after completing this course?
  • What is the course structure, such as the core subjects; is it practical or theory based; are there internship or international opportunities?
  • How long will the course take?
  • What is the cost?
  • Is the campus close to where I’m going to live?
  • What are the entry requirements?
  • What will the student experience be like?
  • What resources and services does the campus offer?
  • Is there a scholarship I can apply for?
  • What does this education provider offer that another doesn’t?
