When do I apply to college?

The beginning of the academic year in Australia and New Zealand is February. Most colleges also offer intakes in July.

There are no set application deadlines for college courses and you can usually apply up until a few weeks before the course starts. Colleges will generally only stop accepting applications once the course is full. Some courses do tend to fill up quite quickly, in particular nursing and some trade courses. You can check with the UK representative of the institution, or if the institution does not have a UK representative, with the International Student Admissions office, when it is best to apply for a college course.
