University Life in Australia

Foundation studies

If you do not meet the entry requirements you may apply for Foundation Studies which is an intensive one-year preparatory course that will equip you with the skills set required to enter and complete an undergraduate course. Foundation Studies are divided into streams such as business studies and science studies and offer a variety of compulsory and elective subjects. English language support is usually available.
Many schools, vocational and technical education institutions, and universities offer Foundation Studies courses. The common feature of Foundation Studies is that a university allocates a provisional place in an undergraduate program assuming you achieve the prescribed grades.

Other courses available

Australian universities also support lifelong learning, offering short courses and training workshops for professionals interested in updating or expanding their skills base.
Study Abroad courses are available if you wish to study in Australia for one or two semesters and count the subjects completed towards your university studies at home. Study abroad courses are available to you at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The experience is intended to expand your knowledge and present you with the personal challenges and rewards of successfully adapting to another culture.

Academic year

University courses run from early March to late November. The year is divided into two semesters. However, some institutions offer a trimester system and/or run summer schools from December to February. The Australian Vice-Chancellors' Committee (AVCC) website provides a list for the year.
Undergraduate and postgraduate by coursework students enrol for their courses at the beginning of the year. Australian universities do allow enrollment in mid-year (around July) for certain courses. Commencement dates can vary, depending on the course.
Students studying towards a Doctoral Degree or other postgraduate research awards may be able to negotiate an alternative starting date with their study supervisor.
Foundation studies have student intakes at several times during the year.
