FAQs

QAre there any fees for In2Study Australia student services?

A

Your initial $99 Skype consultation fee is the only fee you will pay for our services. This covers our time to talk about your case in detail and provide you with all of the information you need to get ready for your study plans in Australia. From here, we will take over the entire process for you.

If you require our migration agent to prepare a professional visa submission on your behalf, you will pay a fee for this service, through our Registered Migration Agent, Kristie Morgan (MARN 1068715), Professional fees will depend on your student visa assessment level. A professionally prepared student visa submission is the best way to maximise your chances of getting your visa approved, and we strongly recommend this for all students enrolling to study in Australia.

  • Assessment Level 1 – $990
  • Assessment Level 2 – $1100
  • Assessment Level 3 – $1500

DIBP student visa application fees are in addition to the above migration agent costs.

QCan In2Study help me if I am outside Australia?

A

Absolutely! We help students from anywhere in the world. The best part about this is that you can be assured we are an Australian agency. We are Australian qualified, and our migration agents are registered with MARA. We will be here to help you settle in once you arrive, as well as throughout your studies in Australia.

QWhen is the best time to apply?

A

As early as possible! Ideally we would like around 5 months to plan and prepare your study pathway with you, but it can be done in less time than this if necessary. Your student visa assessment level will determine the processing time on your application, so talk to us as soon as you can.

In general, university courses start in February and July each year. VET courses may have additional intakes. It is important that we allow sufficient time for your visa processing and to enable you to settle in prior to your studies getting underway.

  • Desired living location
  • Available finances

QWhat are entry requirements?

A

The entry requirements will vary depending on what type of course you want to study in Australia. We have written a great blog on this, and you can review it here.

QWhat if I don’t meet the English requirements?

A

It may be possible for you to firstly study an ELICOS course. This will help get your English scores up to the acceptable level. We can bundle your ELICOS course with your main course so that you only have to do the one visa application (this is called course bundling). Don’t worry, we will talk to you about this option during your initial skype discussion.

QWhat if I don’t currently meet the academic requirements?

A

Don’t panic. There are options to prepare you for further study. Depending on your previous studies, it may be possible to enrol you into secondary school or foundation studies, so that you can go on to study the course you want. We will explore all options with you, to help you reach your goal.
