International Enrolment2020 King's International Student Enrolment Guide
Online International Student Application
STEP 1 - COMPLETE APPLICATION FORM ONLINE
Please complete the online application form, answering ALL QUESTIONS.
Please include the most recent academic transcripts, officially translated into English. If the student has completed an English language assessment, please include copies of this report. Payment of an application fee is required before any application can be processed.
STEP 2 - INTERVIEW WITH HEAD OF DEPARTMENT
Once an application is received, a time will be made for the student to be interviewed by a Head of Department, via Skype.
The student must complete a successful interview BEFORE a place will be offered. Following this interview, a request may be made for the student to undertake an English language assessment to further support their application.
STEP 3 - ACCEPTANCE LETTER ISSUED
If a place is available in the appropriate year level and the applicant is successful, a letter of offer will be issued to the applicant. Along with the letter of offer there will be a written agreement and quote for one year's fees.
STEP 4 - PAYMENT OF FEES
When you receive a letter of offer and you wish to accept, please confirm by returning the signed Written Agreement followed by payment of the required fees as outlined in the quote. Payment can be made by bank transfer or credit card. When transferring a payment please include the account code and student name. Details for bank transfer payments will be provided with the initial quote.
STEP 5 - STUDENT VISA DOCUMENTS ISSUED
When the Written Agreement has been signed and returned and the payment of fees has also been received, the documents needed for a student visa application can be issued. The documents include an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (ECoE) and, where necessary, a welfare/accommodation approval (CAAW). These forms must be submitted, with your student visa application and evidence of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), online to the Australian Department of Home Affairs (DHA), previously known as the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
STEP 6 - ENGLISH LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT (IF EVIDENCE NOT PROVIDED PREVIOUSLY)
A satisfactory level of English is required before a student can commence enrolment. If the student has not studied in English before, it is mandatory that the student attend an ELICOS course prior to enrolment.
Students normally attend Primary/High School Preparation courses for a minimum of two terms, after which the applicant must be able to successfully complete an English language assessment. If the student has not yet completed an English language assessment and provided the school with evidence of such, once the student has arrived in Australia, and prior to commencement of enrolment, an English language assessment can be organised by contacting the International Student Registrar.
STEP 7 - ARRANGE HOMESTAY & AIRPORT PICK-UP
When a student visa has been issued, it is important to notify the college of the date and time of arrival in Australia so that appropriate homestay accommodation and airport pick-up can be organised. If the date of travel or commencement changes, please notify the college immediately.
STEP 8 - HOMESTAY AND SCHOOL ORIENTATION
Within the first week of starting at King's, the student will undertake orientation where expectations are outlined in regards to conduct at school and within their homestay environment, if applicable.
