OzTREKK’s Australian university application survival guide

3 August 2017

So, you’re applying to an Australian university.

We’ve decided to go around the OzTREKK office and have everyone offer tips and tricks for our students who are going to apply, who have applied, or who have accepted their offer to an Australian university. Here, we list some key ways students can get the most out of our services—and feel prepared when they enter the predeparture phase!

Applying to study on the other side of the world is a huge deal and can bring on a whirlwind of feelings! There will certainly be times when you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, nervous—and super happy—so the following tips will help you get through the whole process in one piece!

Have questions? Be answered!
Any time you have questions, it does not hurt to ask us. That’s exactly what we are here for! Sending a quick email to your admissions officer just to confirm things is totally okay and encouraged. We want you to feel supported the whole time.

strong>Read everything—then read it again!
Make sure you read over everything! I know when you receive an offer or an invitation it can be super exciting, but just ensure you read through the entire email or attachment so that you have all the details. We send you a ton of emails, but there is a reason for it! This is really important throughout the application process so that you don’t miss a thing!

Apply by when?
Be aware of your deadlines. I think this one speaks for itself, but it is a good reminder to keep on top of your application deadlines, offer lapse dates, and everything in between. This goes back to the “read it again” section. Our aim is to keep you 100% in the loop at all times, so nothing is missed.  🙂

Remember, we have a few hundred students going through this process with you. You are not alone! We are all here with the same goals: to get you to Australia!

There are lots of aspects that will come into play throughout the application process, but keeping these little things in mind will hopefully make the process a little bit easier for you!
