Applying for admission to ACPE

To apply for admission to the college, you must submit the following –

Academic Transcripts

You must provide certified or original documentation for all your educational qualifications. These documents must be in English and translated by a NAATI registered translator if originally in a different language.

  • Results of your secondary school education
  • Official academic transcripts for all your previous post-secondary study at universities, colleges, and/or other private educational institutions

These should indicate whether the qualification is complete or incomplete. If the documents are not in English, you must provide an official English translation. Requests for Recognition of Prior Learning must be sent with the application, supported by subject outlines and any other relevant documentation from the institution where the prior learning occurred.

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

This should highlight your academic, sporting/dance background, and other areas of achievement and interest. The CV should contain supporting documentation regarding these achievements.

English Language Proficiency Test result (English Requirement)

Documentary evidence of your test scores must be provided.

The college reserves the right to accept or reject any application based on the information submitted. Admissions staff will assess your application. If successful, you will receive a letter of offer. The letter will outline the course, fees payable, course dates, and any additional conditions you must meet. If your application is unsuccessful, you will receive a letter outlining our assessment.

Student Visa Application

Overseas students planning to study in Australia must have a passport and obtain an Australian student visa. The conditions on which a visa is granted may vary from country to country. Information about student visa requirements are available from the Australian Department of Immigration website.

If you wish to proceed with your application, you must complete the Written Agreement sent with the letter of offer, and forward the fees quoted in the letter of offer. These may include –

  • The Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) contribution.

The Australian Government requires all overseas students studying in Australia to take out Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). The College remits payment to Allianz Global Assistance. However, if you are currently on a student visa and already have OSHC, you will need to update your cover and make your payment directly to your OSHC provider to cover the duration of your course at ACPE if your current cover is insufficient.

Upon receipt of your Acceptance Form and payment of all fees quoted in the letter of offer, we will provide you with a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE). The Confirmation of Enrolment is necessary for your student visa application.

The Refund Policy for fees paid by Overseas Students is available on the website and in the written agreement sent to you with your letter of offer.

Required Information

If your visa application is approved by the Australian Diplomatic Office, you must provide the college with the following details as soon as they are available –

  • Student Visa Number
  • Date of arrival in Australia
  • Residential address and contact details in Australia

When you arrive in Australia

You must contact the Admissions Office at the college as soon as possible to confirm your arrival and your Australian address details. We will arrange a time for you to meet with the Overseas Student counsellor.

We will keep you informed regarding Orientation and Registration days for your course.
