Which English language tests are accepted by Australian institutions?

Australian educational institutions are one of the most in demand in the world. Students from Southeast Asia, Indian Peninsula, Japan, and the Oceania region are immigrating to Australia for their quality education. 

Australia is an English-speaking nation and hence its universities require proof of english language proficiency from those whose first language is not English. But worry not as the criteria for the proof is very mild and easy to accomplish. Immigrant students have multiple options to choose from in the form of English Language Proficiency Tests. The tests and their minimum requirements are listed below. 

  1. IELTS

International English Language Testing System is one of the most widely accepted English Language tests in the world. The test centers are available all around the globe and are conducted by British Council, IDP Education, and Cambridge English Assessment. The test is about 2 hours and 45-55 minutes long and is divided into 4 sections, namely, listening, speaking, writing, and reading. 

The minimum requirement to get admission into an Australian institution is 6.0 bands overall with no less than 5.5 bands in any of the sections separately. 

  1. PTE Academics

Pearson Test of English is a relatively new test that is regulated by the Pearson PLC group and is widely accepted in Australia. It has 3 sections namely, speaking and writing, reading, and listening, and is 2 hours and 15 minutes long. It is the recommended test for Australian Institutions as it is very widely known and accessible. 

The minimum score required to get admission into an Australian institution is a minimum of 50 in 

each section. 

  1. TOEFL

The test of English as a Foreign Language is the oldest of all the english language proficiency tests. It is not as widely accepted as IELTS but is equal in terms of difficulty. The test is conducted by Education Testing Service. TOEFL iBT is around 3-3.5 hours long and is divided into 4 sections, namely, listening, speaking, writing, and reading.

The minimum requirement to get admission into an Australian institution is 46 but 12 in listening, 13 in reading, 21 in writing, and 18 in speaking are preferred. 

There are multiple options when it comes to english tests, it’s up to the person appearing for them. PTE is recommended for people wanting Australian or New Zealand institutions. But IELTS is equally accepted.

Can students work during their studies in Australia?

Yes, if you won a student visa (subclass 500), you are eligible for working 40 hours every two weeks on-campus or off-campus. Australia is known for having one of the highest wage rate systems as well. But there are a few restrictions

  1. The course you are enrolled in must be at least 2 years long
  2. You can only work 40 hours every two weeks but are eligible to work unlimited hours during the holiday breaks.
  3. You can only start working once your study program at the university/college starts.

What are the accommodation options available in Australia?

Whether you immigrate to a metropolitan city or a town or even the countryside, you won’t phase an accommodation problem in Australia. Immigrants will have multiple options to choose from and decide according to their budget and needs.

  1. Student Share Room

It is a shared room taken up by generally 2 or 3 students. It is a great option for those who have some budget restrictions as the rent gets split every week. The room has basic amenities like a washing machine, dryer, cleaner, TV, microwave, etc. You need to look for the internet and other luxuries yourself only, which in turn will also get split between the roommates. 

The average rent per week is 140-190AUD per person.

  1. Homestay

Homestay or PG (Paid Guest) as widely known in India, is another great option for people who are looking for accommodations with meals or cooking included. It is a costly option as compared to the shared room but includes every amenity that a shared room provided.

It will cost an average of 260AUD per week per person.

2. Hostels

It is a great place for people who have just arrived in Australia and are looking for accommodation. People also consider it for the medium term till they start doing a job or get financially stable. 

A hostel room rent per week is 195-260AUD per person

 

3. Student Apartments

These can be university-provided accommodations near the campus area designed for housing multiple students (hundreds). The rent varies from place to place. It is a relatively safe place and provides a lot of freedom to the students. 

  1. On-Campus housing

Many students can opt for university/college-provided housing in the campus areas. It is the safest option and has relatively less freedom than an off-campus apartment. There can be restrictions on the entry and exit timings due to it being on campus. The rent is different for different institutions.

2. Hotel/BnB

These are great options for a short-term stay for those who just arrived in Australia and are looking for accommodation options for the long term in and around the city. People often use this method when coming to Australia. The rent/cost depends on the hotel/BnB you book.

3, Renting a room in a share house

A sharehouse is a house with multiple rooms, which provides a great advantage to those who are looking for sharing rent with a room/housemate. People often share rooms within the sharehouse to make it even cheaper for them. It helps in cutting costs a lot.

 

4. Renting a house to share with other flatmates

This is a rather expensive yet very free and private way to live. You can rent a house and then look for people to share rent with. You can find people on the internet through apps or people in your university or job. 

There are multiple ways through which you can live in Australia. It insanely depends on the financial freedom and budget restrictions you have. If you wish to know more about the accommodation costs, please check out our website or give us a message on our Instagram.
