Our courses are primarily delivered online, which usually includes live chat, live online classrooms, private meetings, inbox messaging and/or phone. Note some courses do require attendance at face to face sessions. For full details please refer to the specific course information pages.
One of the best things about studying online is flexibility. Study as suits you, be it intense short sessions between your other commitments, or whole day sessions if you prefer. However, please remember that all courses still have a stage and/or final submission deadlines you need to complete within. These deadlines vary so please refer to the funding options for the course that interests you for more details.
It depends on how much time you commit to your study and whether you have any existing knowledge. Many students complete faster than the official duration, and all students should be able to comfortably finish within the official duration. We do, however, understand that life can sometimes get in the way, so if your enrolment does expire before you graduate, there are usually discounted re-enrolment options available if you do decide to re-enrol in any units you didn’t get to complete. This varies depending on the course and funding options used.
Support & getting the most from your course
Most courses have multiple options for paying tuition fees.
- Interest-free payment plans.
- Subscription/Per subject.
- Queensland Government Subsidies.
- Study Loans (Private Loan Scheme).
Please note, for any option involving debt and repayments, we recommend you first obtain personal advice from an appropriately licensed financial expert.
Online Skills Assessment & LLN
LLN is ‘Language, Literacy and Numeracy’, which are core skills you will need to complete your course.
For some applicants it will be necessary to undertake an LLN test to:
- Determine your suitability for the course that you have selected.
- Assist Australis College to identify any additional support or preparatory skills you may require.
It is simply a series of questions to determine your skill level in the areas of reading and numeracy.
As an RTO (Registered Training Organisation) we are committed to ensuring we provide you with the best chance of success in your course.
The results of the Skills Assessment allow us to see if there are any areas where you may require extra support, either as part of your own preparation for commencing study, or additional support to be provided as you move through your course.
No, there is no fee for completing this assessment as part of the application process.
If you are required to complete the Skills Assessment you will be sent a link and log on details. Please note you will need to access a computer to complete the Skills Assessment.
The Skills Assessment for both Numeracy and Reading may take up to 1.5 hours, but there is no time limit.
You can also attempt questions, save your answers and come back to review your attempt later.
Remember – the quicker you get through the Skills Assessment, the quicker we can process your results and have you start your course.
You may notice that the questions become progressively harder.
Remember – This is not designed to make you feel bad, or stress you, but to assess your maximum skills level.
Everybody gets some of the questions wrong!
Remember – The questions you get right are used to determine your reading and numeracy level. None of the Australis College courses requires you to get all of the questions correct.
You will receive an email report of your Skills Assessment results and the Australis College Student Support team will contact you to discuss the next steps.
We will go through the results with you to explain where there may be gaps.
You will have a copy of the Skills Assessment results which you will be able to take with you to any other training provider. It is up to the other provider to tell you whether they will accept the report you have already generated.
