Students need a sufficient level of English language proficiency; Institutions set their own English language requirements for course entry. The institution accepts.
IELTS - (Minimum 6.0 band score with no band less than 5.5)
TOEFL- (Minimum 79, with no band less than 20),
PTE -(Minimum 50, with no band less than 44).
If your English language proficiency score is not high enough, you can enroll in an English language course (ELICOS/ EAP) to prepare you for further study. All Australian universities have English language centers on campus, or have links with English language colleges. If you don't meet academic requirements, there are a few options to prepare you for further study. Depending on your previous studies and the final qualification you want to study, you can enroll in secondary school or Foundation Studies.
As in the US and the UK, students who go to Australia for full-time studies can work up to 20 hours per week part-time. However, spouses of students can work for an unlimited time, if the student goes for a Masters's level education. Spouses of other students can only work up to 20 hours.
