BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME
Congratulations on your enrolment! There are some important things you will need to do, and we've prepared this checklist to help you make sure you don't overlook anything.
Organise your student visa.
There are money exchange places available at Australian airports and in cities, but it is recommended to have some Australian currency on you prior to leaving your home country.
Check to ensure that your passport is valid for the intended length of your study period in Australia.
You may want to have a list of emergency contact details for family, as well as your embassy, accommodation and institution details. If you have used an education agent, keep their contact details on you, in case you need to contact them once you arrive in Australia.
Have medical, optical and dental check-ups and organise any prescribed medication you may require including a letter from your doctor (in English) detailing any prescribed medicines.
Pack a document folder containing your offer letter, Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE), academic transcripts from previous study, identification documents, important contact numbers, details of pre-arranged accommodation and important medical records.
You may make your own way from the airport to your accommodation or book your airport pick up through us by completing the Accommodation and Airport Transfer application form.
Customs and quarantine
Check customs and quarantine regulations and pack any items you wish to declare separately.
Book temporary accommodation before you leave your home country by completing the Accommodation and Airport Transfer application form. Start looking for long-term accommodation as early as possible.
Organise insurance for your personal belongings.
