Once you’ve received your Certificate of Enrolment (COE) and Australian student visa with IEMS, we have a range of services to help you once you arrive in the country:
IEMS offers a complimentary airport pick-up service for all newly enrolled students arriving in Australia for the first time. It is important to make preparations to use this service in advance, so please ensure that you discuss with your student advisor prior to your flight. If you have additional family members wishing to utilise this service, please discuss this with your student advisor, as this could incur cost dependent upon location.
International Student Accommodation Australia
To get the most out of your overseas study experience, your choice of student accommodation is very important, and one of the biggest challenges for a newly arrived international student. Australia is one of the most popular holiday and international study destinations in the world, and as a result, affordable and convenient accommodation is becoming increasingly scarce, and increasingly expensive. Many people choose to live and study in Australia so having the right level of support is crucial to successfully secure accommodation that you are happy with. Click here now to speak with our Admissions Counsellors about student accommodation in Australia.
There are many housing options to consider, including house-share, rooms at residential colleges on or off campus, hostels, homestay and and vast resources allocated to residential letting. IEMS have agreements in place with many accommodation providers across Australia, and we strongly recommend that you speak with one of our student advisor’s prior to departure, to ensure that you have budgeted correctly and have the confidence that you are moving into a secure and convenient location.
Usually, temporary accommodation is a preferred option for many students for an initial period of several weeks, as it will give you time to adjust to life in a new country, get your bearings, and decide where will suit you best in the longer term. IEMS have representatives across Australia that can help you find suitable accommodation, and have vast experience in the local market. Please contact us to discuss by clicking here.
Networking Functions & Student Excursions
Our networking function offers international students and opportunity to meet people from your country of origin and further afield. IEMS usually promotes a monthly networking event in each state capital, in association with our affiliated student unions. Similarly we run various excursions across Australia in association with our Education partners. Please contact your student counselor for more details.
