1. Application for Enrolment
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 (e.g. Statement of Purpose) to satisfy the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) requirement. This information may also be reviewed by ICHM’s external verification agent.
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.
2. Letter of Offer
ICHM will advise you of the outcome of your application within two weeks. Some applications (e.g. those requiring external verification) may take longer to process, as additional information is required. Credit transfer applications usually take extra time.
If your application to ICHM 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$250. This must be done in 21 days after the date of the Letter of Offer from ICHM.
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 CoE 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. For more information regarding student visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs website.
In almost all cases, international students should engage an authorised ICHM agent to assist them with their application and visa process.
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.
7. Pack Your Bags for an Unforgettable Experience
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.
