Intakes in Australia

Australian universities typically have two main intakes per year:

Some universities may also offer additional intakes in November/December, but these are less common.

The February/March intake is the most popular intake for international students, as it allows them to start their studies at the beginning of the Australian academic year. The July/August intake is a good option for students who miss the February/March intake or who want to start their studies later in the year.
