Accept Your Offer

If your application is successful (and if you have paid the application/registration fee – if applicable) the college will issue you with a Letter of Offer and a written agreement. Please complete, sign and return this agreement to the College to indicate your acceptance of the offer in your chosen course of study.


Confirm Your Enrolment

Along with formally accepting your Letter of Offer and agreement, it is necessary for you to pay half of the course fee before being issued a COE by ALACC. Payment should be made in Australian dollars to Australasian Lawrence Aged Care College by bank transfer or an international bank draft. When your payment is received, your enrolment at Australasian Lawrence Aged Care will be confirmed in writing.
Moreover if you need ALACC to arrange an OSHC (Overseas Student Health Cover) then you will have to pay for that, before ALACC issues you a COE.


Receive Your E-COE

Following the receipt of your payment, Australasian Lawrence Aged Care College will issue an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (e-COE) which will be sent to you through email.


File for Student Visa

After receiving your e-COE you should contact Australian Embassy or High commission in your country for all the relevant information and processes regarding your student visa application.

Fees and IELTS Requirement

How is Your Application Processed?

Your application is processed only after all the relevant documents are received. Applicants residing in Australia who have satisfied the entry conditions for their chosen course will be provided with a Letter of Offer. Applicants residing overseas at the time of enrolling will be assessed for eligibility by the CEO/Director of Studies or Delegate through the submission of the enrolment form and supporting documents.

Apart from the other college’s admission requirements; the following factors may also be considered:

  • Age
  • Work experience
  • Attitude and aptitude
  • Previous academic results
  • Attendance rate in the previous college (if applicable)
  • Ability and skills to function in an academic environment
  • Possibility to succeed in his/her academic endeavors.

Having arrived at an admission decision, the English language skills (language and literacy) will be assessed. If the student has a satisfactory IELTS certificate score the applicant will be admitted to his/her chosen course.

If an applicant cannot produce a satisfactory IELTS certificate score of 5.5 or higher, and there are doubts about the English language skills to cope in an academic environment, the applicant will be advised to enrol in an English (EAL) course/s for an appropriate duration until the student achieves an equivalent to IELTS certificate score of 5.5 or higher. This is not included in your student fees and needs to be paid separately by the student.
