One of the most popular ways of entering higher education in Australia is through vocational education training (VET). It is ideal for those who want to enter careers that are in demand in Australia as well as worldwide. VET is based on getting theoretical and practical skills in a real professional environment.

VET courses are available in both government colleges as well as private colleges. Depending on the career and level you choose, these courses usually last from 6 months to 2 years.

To be eligible for enrollment you must have a High School diploma and at least upper intermediate level of English (IELTS 5,5). The majority of English language colleges have partnered with some VET colleges and universities which means you will not have to take the official IELTS exam to gain entry into a partner program.

The most popular and in-demand professions in Australia are in office management, accounting, hospitality and tourism, computer science, marketing, hairdressing, beauty, graphic design and fitness.
