Study in Australia without IELTS – possible with alternative tests

International students aiming for study in Australia will no longer have IELTS as the only option for proving their English Proficiency. The alternative English language tests such as TOEFL, PTE and Cambridge English will also be acceptable for student visa purpose by the end of this year. These provisions have not only created a competition in the English Language test market but has also increased the choices and no. of test centres for students. Moreover students will be able to get their results in a comparatively short time.

    1. In streamline visa processing, IELTS is not mandatory for visa whereas for non streamline cases IELTS is mandatory. Further an English assessment test is required by the Australian institutions to judge your level English language skill. Apart from IELTS, TOEFL, PTE Advance, OET and Cambridge advance tests are also acceptable. Some institutions also have their own English test which they may consider taking on case by case basis. Our recommendation is that you should take up IELTS or any other approved tests, in order to have your visa processed in streamline.
