Entry Requirements

Aventia Institute’s entry requirements are as follows:

International students must be at least 18 years of age and must have completed at least the equivalent of Year 12 (or completion of Year 10 with at least 3 years work experience) or the Certificate IV level course.

These students must also have an IELTS score of 5.5 or equivalent (test results must be no more than 2 years old).

International Students may not be required to provide evidence of English Language competence where documented evidence can be provided to demonstrate any of the following:

  • the student was educated for 5 years in an English-speaking country.

  • the student has successfully completed a foundation course in Australia
  • the student has successfully completed the College English Placement Test.

Where a student cannot provide evidence of English language proficiency as above, they will be required to complete the Versant Placement Test.
