Academic Entry Requirements

Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduate degree students are assessed competitively on the basis for Australian Year 12, or overseas equivalent school qualifications. Some programs at IIBIT require additional procedures such as interviews and/or auditions. Students with post-school qualifications (e.g. Diploma, Advanced Diploma) may be considered for admission with advanced standing or credit (recognition of prior learning).

The amount of advanced standing will not normally exceed more than half of the Federation University program concerned.

Postgraduate Programs

Entry requirements vary from program to program, however generally require completion of a first degree from a recognised University with specified minimum grades (or marks) in relevant courses. A period of work experience, following graduation, may also be required for some professional programs.

English Language Proficiency

In addition, for all courses, students must have obtained the following minimum level of English language proficiency to be admitted.

Undergraduate and Postgraduate (Coursework)

A student who receives exemption for any unit will receive a full refund (or credit towards another unit) of fees for the course concerned.

Offer Process

Successful applicants will receive an official letter of offer from IIBIT on behalf of FedUni specifying the details of the program or programs, the required fees, the terms and conditions of enrolment and other relevant information. The offer must be accepted in writing. One semester’s program fee and compulsory medical insurance (OSHC), must be paid after the Pre Visa / e – Visa approval is granted to the applicant. After acceptance of the offer and payment of fees, IIBIT will send each confirmed student an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) form in order for the student to apply to the Australian diplomatic post to receive the final student visa to come to Australia


Program Deferral

Sometimes new students choose to defer the start of their program for a number of reasons. Students may reserve their place in a program for a period agreed with IIBIT. However the normal maximum period of deferment is one year. Students receiving an offer of a place in a program who wish to defer the start of their program must write to the IIBIT Student Services Office outlining the reason for their deferment request. Deferment of the start of a program after a student arrives in Australia is subject to Australian immigration rules.
