OUR 8 STEP PROCESS:

STEP 1

Course Identification & Career Counselling

Our qualified teams in Kenya and Sydney we’ll look after you! We partner with the best Institutions in Australia to help you make an informed choice that suits your qualifications, circumstances and study goals. One of our trained counsellor will sit with you to discuss your options and help you identify the best suited study pathway for you. After you have decided on the best option for you, and you have provided us with all the requested mandatory application documents, it will be time to apply to university/college.

STEP 2

The Application

Your application will be submitted to the the institution(s) you have selected. We will be assisting you with completing the application form and guiding you through the various mandatory documentation requirements.

STEP 3

The Assessment

A complete application is usually assessed between 1 to 4 weeks. The university/college admissions team will assess your application against the following criteria:

  • English language entry requirements
  • Academic entry requirements
  • DIBP’s GTE and GS criteria

It is important to note that meeting the minimum requirements will not automatically guarantee and offer to study. Some course may have additional requirements or quotas.

STEP 4

Successful Applications

You will receive a Letter of Offer which can be categorised in 2 ways.

  • Conditional Letter of Offer – indicates conditions you need to meet before accepting, paying fees or enrolling.
  • Unconditional letter of Offer – all requirements met, you can now accept the offer and pay fees.

Details on how to accept the offer or pay the fees are usually outlined in the letter of offer. We can provide support ant assistance at this stage.

STEP 5

Accepting your offer

This is an exciting stage!

To accept your offer, you often are required to sign and return the terms of agreement part of your letter of offer.

Please note you are also required to pay the indicated tuition fees directly to the college or university as this stage too. Instructions for payment and the institution’s bank details are usually provided in your letter of offer. We will be assisting with the transaction process if required.

STEP 6

Applying for your VISA

After your fees are received and health insurance (OHSC) organised for you by the education provider, a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) is sent.

This is one of the most important document in applying for your student visa! A specialist team member will work with you in assisting all aspects of your Visa Application.
