Vocational Courses

Academic Calendars

In general our vocational courses have two intakes per year, in February and July. However, some vocational courses may have only one annual intake.

You will need to allow sufficient time to apply to study at the Northern Sydney Institute in order to get your international student visa and arrive on time to commence your study.

If you are applying from another country, you should allow two to six months before the course starts for visa processing and flight booking to Sydney. Many popular courses will fill quickly and require early payment to secure a place.

Please be aware that applications for courses that have a portfolio requirement will take longer to process and assess.

English programs and degree programs have different academic calendars.
