Airport Pick-up We offer an Airport Pick Up Service to help with your arrival in Australia. An AIH staff will meet you at the airport, take you to your accommodation, and provide help and advices to assistance on request.

You need a student visa if you wish to study in Australia for over 3 months. If your intended stay in Australia is 3 months or less you may apply for a short stay visa. For periods of study greater than 3 months a Student (Temporary) Visa is required by non-Australian residents and is granted only if they enroll in a registered, full-time course in Australia. All courses for international students, and the Australian education and training institutions that offer them, must be registered with the Australian Government. Generally, an international student is issued with a multiple entry visa for the duration of their study course in Australia. This allows you to travel back and forth to Australia within the period for which it has been granted. Members of your immediate family (spouse and unmarried dependent children under 18 years of age) may accompany you to Australia and will be considered in the same visa class as yourself. If you wish to extend your stay in Australia for further study you will need to lodge an application for a further visa.

FAQ

How do intending students apply for admission in the college?

Students need to first complete and lodge college’s relevant Application Form along with the required documents that satisfy course entry requirements. A pre-enrolment self-assessment may also be required.
Prospective students may also apply through our approved Education Agent for an admission in their desired course(s).
The courses can also be packaged to offer an academic pathway for students looking for a specific educational outcome.

How does the college formalist the enrolment?

Once an application is received with the relevant documents, the college determines if the applicant meets the entry requirements in the intended courses; and the candidate self-assessment reflects course suitability.
Once all the enrolment conditions have been met, the college extends an offer letter to applicant along with a copy of Student Agreement. This agreement aims to ensure the obligations and rights of both the registered provider and student are clearly set out, including the course money payable and services to be provided (The National Code 2018: Standard 3).

What is the Tuition Fee?

Tuition fees are fees we receive, directly or indirectly, from an overseas student or intending overseas student, or another person who pays the fees on behalf of an overseas student or intending overseas student that are directly related to the provision of a course that Bayside International College English is providing, or offering to provide, to the student.
Tuition fees are clearly shown against each course of study in Bayside International College English’s Offer Letter as well as Student Agreement.
