    Australia is a great destination for higher studies, and this is the reason why every year lakhs of students from different parts prefer to study here. The universities in Australia always figure among the top places of higher education in the world with their great research infrastructure, well-connected markets, presence of global bigwigs, and a number of factors that make it a preferred destination for Indian students. Australian universities admit students in three semesters, and one can choose a suitable intake depending on the availability of courses, the choice of university, and several other factors.

    There are several good courses offered by the universities in this intake, and it is one of the preferred intakes for international students. The available seats for admission are certainly less than the July intake but lesser seats also mean less competition as the number of applicants is less. The reason why this intake is famous is that there are certain courses at certain universities which are open only in this intake. The application deadline for a majority of courses for the February intake is between September to January. You can always wait for the next intake if you aren’t getting your desired course or university.

    As we have already mentioned that the February intake has a relatively lesser number of seats for admission, and most International students prefer the July intake. In this intake, the availability of seats is way more than in any other intake. In the July intake, you will have a much broader range of courses, to choose from, and at different universities. The July intake is preferred as it gives students the much-needed time to take the standardized test (GRE/GMAT/IELTS/TOEFL, etc) which is applicable for the course. Students can comfortably take the tests from December to January as the degree programs in India are usually completed in May-June. It gives the students ample time to prepare for the standardized test, and get the scores well before the application deadlines. Students get the utmost liberty to choose a course of their preference, and if at all you don’t get admission to the desired course, you can always go ahead with the November intake. However, in most cases, students usually get admission in the July intake unless there are some issues at the student’s end. 

    3rd Semester or the November Intake

    It is one of the least sought intake among international students. There are barely a couple of seats available at some universities which don’t get filled. However, if you are seeking to study something that is unique, and which is not sought by most students then this intake can be really helpful for you. There are some universities like Monash University that have rolling deadlines for applications. There are other universities too that take admission throughout the year. If you are getting a course of your choice in these universities then you should certainly move ahead with the admissions. One of the best things about November intake is that if you are getting a course of your choice then the chances are very likely that you will be selected in the admission procedure if you are meeting the admission criteria. So, it’s advised to check the university websites offering admission in the November intake as you might get a course of your preference without any hassle or waiting in the peak admission session. 

    Timeline for July Intake in Australia 

    If you are planning to take admission in the July intake then this timeline can be very helpful in chalking out your entire admission plan. It will help you in taking all the steps at the right time so that you are ready well before the deadlines, and don’t have to bother about the last-minute hassle. 

    October-November (Previous year)

    • It is the best time to start searching for universities in Australia. It is a very crucial process as you must choose around 10 universities where you will be comfortable studying. 
    • See all the details about the university, the cost of living in the city, the availability of courses, the job prospects, and all other relevant factors. 
    • It is the time when you should make a thorough list of the universities along with the deadlines so that you don’t miss the application process.



    • It is the time when you will have to select the dates for the standardized test for admission. It could be GRE/GMAT/TOEFL/IELTS or any other test that the university might require for admissions to the degree programs. 
    • Some programs require students to take more than one standardized test so it’s better to see the requirements beforehand. One should start the preparation in the final semester or immediately after graduation.
    • You should always plan the test by having enough time to retake the test if the test results aren’t satisfactory on the first attempt.

    • Since you are already ahead of most of the students, now is the time to send applications to the universities where you are planning to study. 
    • Before applying to a university, double-check the eligibility criteria, the course requirements, work experience requirements, seat availability in the July intake, etc. 
    • Start applying on the official university website itself as universities in Australia prefer direct application unless there is a specific requirement to do otherwise. 
    • Get all your documents in order, and make sure that there are no discrepancies in the document. Any mismatch of information in the application form and documents will have a direct bearing on the admissions. 
    • It is the time when you should start writing your SOP. The SOP should be precise, and aptly describe the reason why you chose a particular course. It is a direct way to communicate your potential to the admission body, and it must be written with utmost precision. 
    • For the Letter Of Recommendation(LOR) you should contact your lecturer or if you are a working professional in that case you can get it from your boss. The ultimate aim behind the LOR and SOP is to make your application distinct from the pool of applicants. 



    It is around these months when you will start getting the letter of acceptance from universities. 

    • Be quick to reply to the mail from the university where you are planning to study. Any delay might leave you without getting admission at your desired university or for the course to which you have applied. 
    • Even if there is a deadline mentioned in the letter of acceptance, don’t wait till the last time. University might change something that ends up affecting your candidature. So, complete the process as soon as possible. 
    • There are instances wherein the students are asked to pay non-refundable fees to the university. These fees coupled with any other payment should be done at the earliest.



    • After getting the letter of acceptance you should immediately apply for bank loans
    • The bank loan processing time depends on the type of lender. Public Sector Banks might take 20-25 days in processing the loan on the other hand Private Sector banks sanction the loan within a fortnight. The least processing time is for NBFCs, and they sanction the loan within a week or a maximum of 10 days. 
    • You need to get the loan sanctioned before applying for the visa. The visa application is considered only when you can prove substantial funds into your bank account to finance your studies and cost of living. 
    • You can also apply for scholarships to fund your education or partially reduce the burden of an abroad education loan
    • You should also sort out the accommodation plan at the time of your stay in Australia. You can contact the university, and they will assist you in finding the best locations that suit your studies as well as your pocket. 



    • It is the time when you will have to book the flight tickets to Australia. 
    • You can open a bank account in Australia or get an internationally accepted Debit or Credit card. 
    • Make additional Xerox copies of all the important documents like passport, marks sheet, transcript, ID proofs, etc. 
    • Gather information like the best mobile service provider, broadband service providers, local food joints, local markets, transportation cards, etc.
