I am an Australian citizen living, studying and working in London, UK..
If you would like to study as a student in Australia, visit Australia as a tourist or have a working holiday then I can help answer your questions regarding visa eligibility, university courses, fees, accommodation, health insurance etc.
If you are studying at an Australian University in Malaysia - Swinburne University, then you shouldn't need to sit the IELTS exam again, provided that the language of instruction was in English. If you were taught in the Malaysian language then you probably need to provide up to date proof that you have a good level of English so that you can study in Australia. The IELTS test is good proof of English ability.
Have you already enrolled in your course at Swinburne Uni in Malaysia? Have you been accepted? When do you start your course?
You are right - the Australian Department of Immigration will not accept an (International English Language Testing System) IELTS test that is more than 2 years old!! The test is only acceptable if taken no more than 2 years prior to making your student visa application. Therefore, you need to take the IELTS test before you make your visa application or the test will not be taken into consideration.
Good to see that you are planning well in advance!
hey- im looking to study law and/or french at uni next year (2007)- was wondering if any unis offered a joint degree of law with french and what the best unis are for law and french? also, what kind of grades do you need in order to gain a scholarship?
Depends what state really, queensland has University of Queensland which has an amazing arts dept (law, art, language etc). Then theres University of Melbourne, also excellent, and then monash which is good but its more of an engineering uni, though still very good.
They offer scholarships on a basis of need...not grades, and with they system they have in place now, up front you don't pay any fees, but when you start your first job they take a portion of your income till its paid back, depending on your income of course. great system.
