Future Intakes in Australia
The academic year in Australia typically starts in February and ends in November, with two main intake periods for international students:
- The first intake period is in February, which is the start of the academic year. This is the main intake period for most institutions and programs, and many universities have a deadline for applications in the months leading up to February.
- The second intake period is in July, which is known as the “mid-year intake“. This intake period is less common than the February intake and not all universities or courses offer it, but it can be a good option for students who are unable to start their studies in February.
It’s important to note that application deadlines and specific intake periods can vary depending on the institution and the program of study. Some universities and colleges may have multiple intake periods throughout the year, and some courses may have specific start dates that are different from the general intake periods.
It’s recommended to check with the institution you plan to attend for the most up-to-date information on their intake periods and any application deadlines. Additionally, some institutions may have rolling intake periods, where students can apply and start at any time.
It’s also important to note that the process of applying for a student visa may take several months, so it’s important to start the application process well in advance of the intended start date to ensure that the visa is processed in time.
