If you have any questions or need any help with the application process, please contact Sydney@els.edu.  We look forward to welcoming you to our school!

Step 1

Complete all sections of our Application Form and email it to applysydney@els.edu or enrol online.

Please also email copies of the following documents with your completed application form to applysydney@els.edu or upload them if using our online form:

  • Passport details page
  • English language evidence (IELTS /TOEFL/PTE)
  • Current visa (if in Australia only)
  • OSHC details (if on a student visa and currently in Australia)

Step 2

We will prepare a Letter of Offer normally within 24-48 hours. 

Step 3

If you are going to arrive in Australia on a Student visa you must sign the Offer Acceptance / Tax Invoice (usually page 3 in the Letter of Offer) and return it to us.  We require payment of fees 4 weeks before course commencement.  Full details on how to pay will be available in your Letter of Offer.

Step 4

After payment is received students coming to Australia on a Student Visa will receive from us a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)

Step 5

Apply for your visa from your nearest Australian Embassy or Consulate. If you are applying for a Student Visa, you will need the CoE we issued for you for your visa application.

Step 6 

(only if requesting accommodation and/or Sydney Airport greeting)

If you wish to use our homestay service, you will need to apply at least 4 weeks before your arrival in Australia, to allow us time to find you the most suitable family. Please provide us with the following flight information 3 weeks before you arrive in Australia:

  • Flight number
  • Date of arrival
  • Time of arrival

We will aim to confirm your homestay details (and Airport transfer if requested) 2 weeks before you arrive in Australia provided your fees have been received.
