You can learn more about the fees structure by viewing the Fees section under the Program Information area on this website.
Although there are no formal arrangements with other Universities, our students have been readily accepted into other Australian Universities without problems.
At completion of their foundation studies, students can request a competency assessment. The assessment takes into consideration the five subjects studied during IES Foundation Year and does not require an additional exam or assignment. If a student is deemed to be competent in all five subjects, they will receive the nationally recognised qualification 10246NAT Certificate IV in University Preparation which can be used to enter other Australian universities.
Competency assessment will incur an additional fee as outlined on the fees and expenses section of the site.
