Local Student Enrolment Procedures

Before you begin the online application, you will need to first generate and gather up some documentation which you will then be asked to upload during the online enrolment process. 

  1. A Unique Student Identifier number (also known as a “USI”- required by government for all students applying to accredited courses.). This is a very quick process: go to http://www.usi.gov.au
  2. Apply for a Working with Children Check (this is needed in order to go out on Professional Experience in schools as a course requirement). Visit http://workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au  and then provide us with either the receipt for the Working with Children check or the document itself once you have received it.
  3. Proof of citizenship such as birth certificate or passport.
  4. A short (around 500 words) hand-written biographical statement introducing yourself.
  5. Copies of any qualifications (high school certificate, post-secondary, tertiary) you have already completed.

Once you have the information above, then you are ready to apply online.
