    Do I have to take an English proficiency test to apply to study in Australia?

    As a Malaysian student you are required to submit results for an English Proficiency test as part of your application to a university in Australia. Here are the two most commonly taken tests and the scores needed to qualify in many universities in Australia, including the top ones.

    • IELTS : 6.5 overall or nothing less than 6.0
    • Pearson PTE : above 60

    Note that <u>some universities</u> may consider other proof of english proficiency as an alternative to the English Proficiency Test e.g. by showing that English was the medium of instruction for your current academic qualification.

    Consult with your study abroad consultant to find out more.

    Do I apply to universities directly or via an agent?

    You can apply directly to a university, but it is recommended that you engage with a study abroad consultant to apply.
