Once we receive the application, we will make an assessment on the basis of the documents submitted. If you fulfil all entry requirements, you will be sent a Conditional Letter of Offer. This CLO will have all details about conditions of enrolment. We advise you to read the offer letter very carefully before you send your acceptance and request for GTE form. You will be required to fill in the GTE requirements form and send it to us with supporting documentary evidence. Once you have submitted the required documentation including GTE form alongwith evidentary documents, we will make an assessment if you fulfil all requirements. If at all we require any more documents or additional information, we will get in touch with you via the email address provided by you on the enrolment form. Once you have been assessed as acceptable for admission, we will send an unconditional Letter of Offer (ULO). You will then be required to deposit the initial amount as described in the offer letter into our nominated bank account to get your eCOE. Once we have received the required deposit, we will proceed to generate e-Confirmation of Enrolment (e-COE). You may proceed to apply for your student visa. You may do it yourself or you have a choice to use a qualified agent. Our list of agents are provided on the website for your ready reference.
