Step 1 - Choose a course

  • Choose the English course that you would like to study at the TAFE English Language Centre (TELC).
  • Check the English language requirements for entry into your selected course.
  • If you already have an IELTS score, you will find that choosing an English course is easy. But if you don’t have an IELTS score and you are already onshore, you may wish to sit our TAFE English Entry Test for an assessment so that our teachers could assist you in choosing the right course to match your English skills level.

If your application is successful you will receive:

  • an offer letter for the English course
  • an invoice statement that advises you about fee payments and other charges, information about your student visa application and, if you have requested it, airport pick up and accommodation fees.

Step 4 - Accept your Offer

  • To accept the offer, pay the fees and charges listed on the invoice. Details of how to pay are included with your offer.
  • When your payment is received you will be issued with an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) and the Campus Orientation details .
  • Use the eCoE to apply for your student visa that allows you to study in Australia.
