Applying

International Students

International students may apply directly to the ICHM Admissions office or via a local ICHM agent/representative. For a list of authorised agents see the ICHM website.

1. Application for Enrolment
Complete the ICHM Application form in the ICHM Prospectus, or Apply Online.

Please ensure that you submit all the required documents (e.g. academic transcripts) for assessment. Certified academic transcripts/supporting documents must be provided in English. These may be certified by the school/institution that issued the original documents, Public Notary or other independent source approved by ICHM.

Then email to admissions@ichm.edu.au; fax (61 8) 8228 3684 or post/courier to ICHM Admissions Office PO Box 125, Kilkenny SA 5009.

2. Letter of Offer
ICHM will advise you of the outcome of your application within two weeks. Some applications may take longer to process as additional information may be required; and RPL/credit transfers usually take extra time. 

If your application is successful, ICHM will send a Letter of Offer to you or your agent, confirming the course you have been offered, fees payable and course commencement date.

To accept the offer you must sign and return the Acceptance Letter and pay the New Student Fee of A$1,600. This must be done in 21 days after the date of the Letter of Offer from ICHM. (Note: the Accommodation Securing Fee of A$ is payable no later than two months prior to your start date). 

3. Confirmation of Enrolment
Upon receipt of the New Student Fee, ICHM will formally notify you that you have been accepted. The electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) form will be sent directly to your representative if they are assisting with your application. You will need the Confirmation of Enrolment to apply for your Student Visa.

4. Payment of Semester Fees
The invoice in step 2 will advise you of the amount and due date for payment. If you receive the Letter of Offer within 60 days or less of the commencement date, then full fees are payable immediately upon receipt of this letter.

5. Student Visa Application
International students intending to study at ICHM must apply for a Student Visa.

ICHM is an approved Streamlined Visa Processing (SVP) provider. Under the streamlined student visa processing arrangements, eligible student visa applicants from participating universities and eligible higher education providers are assessed as though they are a lower immigration risk, irrespective of their country of origin.

ICHM will assess each application, and reserves the right to request additional information as required. This means you might need to provide additional documents or information to satisfy the genuine temporary entrant requirement. This information may also be reviewed by ICHM’s external verification agent.

In most cases the process should take just a few weeks; some may take longer if additional information and verification is required.

6. New Student Information Pack
Approximately six weeks prior to course commencement, you will be sent an information pack outlining what you need to bring and answers to frequently asked questions. New students should also advise ICHM when they will arrive at campus and if pickup is required. Please ensure that the ICHM Admissions Office has your correct personal email address.

Step 6. Pack your bags for an experience you will never forget! 
Most students don’t know anyone else when they first arrive. We suggest you relax, don’t worry, and be your friendly, outgoing self. ICHM has great orientation activities, designed especially to make you feel welcome and settle in as quickly as possible.
