Hi Neha

Australia is quite expensive and living expense is huge so you must have huge amounts of money before applying to universities. However, some universitites give scholarships but it does not cover all expenses.

Coming to process

  • Almost all Australian Universities accept the 3-year graduation system for entry into most postgraduate courses.
  • Standard X Mark sheet
  • Standard XII Mark sheet
  • Bachelor Degree / Provisional Certificate with mark sheet

Note : If the transcripts and other relevant documents are not in English, they must be translated into English

  • IELT S and GRE exam scorecard must be provided.
  • A statement of purpose mentioning career goals, interests, extracurricular activities, and why the student has chosen the particular stream and how he/she will manage financially during the stay in Australia needs to be provided.
  • Letter of recommendation from the person who has taught the student or knows him/her professionally

Hope this helps!

All the best
