Studying in Australia as someone from the UK

Hi! I’’m currently in Year 12 (sixth form) and I would really like to study dentistry in Australia. However, as someone who’s from England, I’m confused whether I would fall into the 2025 or 2026 cohort for starting university - as i’m aware the academic year starts at a different time to England (Jan/Feb?). Also i’m born in January (I’m 17) so i’m even more confused! Please give me some advice on this! Thanks :smile:

Yeah so all my friends who ended up in Ausi all took a 6/7 month gap year before starting uni. They all left for uni in Feb and applied only after receiving their A level results.

Thank you so much for your comment! Do you know when your friends’ birthdays are? Since i’m born in Jan, if i were to take a 6 month gap year i’d basically be 19 when i start uni in Australia. Do you know whether that would that be a problem? Do I have to apply a year earlier? Australia’s school system confuses me!
