Assessment of Application

The Director of International Programs assesses all International student applications. Students may be asked to attend a face to face interview, either in person or online if not in-country.

As a condition of enrolment, students must complete the required amount of ELICOS as determined by the AEAS assessment by an external ELICOS provider prior to commencing students at Thomas Carr College. A conditional offer will be made to students on this basis.

The College will conduct an initial screening of the international student’s accommodation arrangements using the College’s Homestay Appraisal form for any student residing with a suitable relative.

Offer of a Place

If the student’s application is successful, the School will forward a Letter of Offer and Written Agreement to the student. The results will be communicated to the referring agent or family if it is a direct application.

Accepting the Offer

To accept the offer of a place at Thomas Carr College, the following must be submitted to the School:

  • International Student Agreement completed and signed by both parents
  • Medical Data (if this was not forwarded earlier)
  • Payment of the fees in advance as requested in the Letter of Offer.
Confirmation of Enrolment (COE)

Once the payment and all documents requested above have been received, the College will issue the Confirmation of Enrolment to enable students to apply for a student visa.
