International Students seeking entry to Sydney Art School courses need to meet English Language Proficiency Requirements.  

As a CRICOS provider we recruit responsibly and ensure that overseas students are appropriately qualified for the course they are seeking to complete.

Before we issue a Certificate of Enrolment (CoE) we will assess whether your qualifications, experience and English language proficiency are appropriate for the course for which enrolment is sought.

The English Language Proficiency requirements are aligned with the minimum eligibility requirements for a student visa as set down by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs which are detailed at and also copied below in this article…

We also suggest that you review the Department of Home Affairs document checklist tool to see what proof you may need to provide with your visa application.
