How We Help

Going to university in Australia or New Zealand is a deeply enriching experience, but figuring out how to set up everything on your own is a big deal!

That’s where OzTREKK comes in. When you’re first considering studying abroad, you may have questions about the universities, their programs, and how to apply.

When you contact OzTREKK for info about a program area, an admissions officer will send you an online program-specific OzTREKK Admissions Guide. You will also get one-on-one guidance from OzTREKK to help you decide which university and degree works best for you.

How Does OzTREKK Work?

When you apply through OzTREKK, a dedicated admissions team will be assigned to your file and will walk you through each and every step. OzTREKK will

  • provide you with one streamlined, easy-to-follow application for all our university partners;
  • provide you with all applicable supplementary university application forms;
  • let you know which documents are required to complete your application;
  • organize and submit your application(s) to the universities on your behalf (no need to mail your documents to Australia!);
  • inform you of the outcome of your application;
  • walk you through the acceptance (or decline) phase;
  • help you understand everything predeparture—including student visas, health insurance, accommodation, and more.

Don’t forget! Whenever you have questions or concerns, we are just an email or phone call away!

Predeparture Prep


Once you have received an offer from an Australian or New Zealand university, you officially enter the “Predeparture” stage!

Now comes the really exciting part: your admissions officer will take you through everything from student visas, financing, health insurance, accommodation and more through a series of videos, emails, webinars, and blogs to keep you on track during the weeks leading up to your arrival in Australia.

All OzTREKK students receive exclusive access to the OzTREKK Boarding Pass, which outlines detailed predeparture info, access to our predeparture webinars, and much more!  See below for an example of the topics we cover. Don’t worry—all OzTREKK students will receive our Boarding Pass link!

Sometimes it’s a good idea to take a step back to make sure you’re on the right path, especially when you’re making such a life-changing commitment!

What happens if you change your mind? How do refunds work? What about switching universities? Here, we’ve made a list of important things you “need to know,” including deposits, refunds, and other “fine print” items.

Parents’ Network


Being a parent of a student studying abroad is exciting—but it can also be a bit stressful at times.

We’ve got your back. In fact, we’ve got each other’s backs!

We created the OzTREKK Parents’ Network for all parents of OzTREKK students who are studying in Australia or New Zealand. The network is your place to ask questions, share stories about your children, and connect with others who are going through the same emotions that you are—and OzTREKK staff are always on hand to answer questions!

Parents will receive an invitation to join this private group after their child accepts a letter of offer.
