We are all aware of Sydney and Brisbane which has got a lot of job opportunities including part- time jobs. It is the sixth largest country and has the lowest population density per square kilometer. Australian Universities offer pathway programs, bachelors & master’s degrees and doctoral programs.
Students who are not able to meet the direct entry requirements of Australian Universities can be offered ‘Pathway Programs”. These programs can be offered at undergraduate level and postgraduate level. These are also called as ‘Packaged Programs’. Pathway programs are a good opportunity to the students who fail to meet the direct entry requirements of the Australian universities.
Pathway Programs are of two types:- 1.Academic Pathway Programs: Offered to the students who are unable to meet the Academic entry criteria 2.English Language Programs: Offered to the students who are unable to meet the English language criteria
What is GTE-GENUINE TEMPORARY ENTRANT and why you should know about it?
Genuine: The student should have genuine intentions of studying in
Temporary: The student should intend to stay in Australian temporarily.
The objective of ‘GTE Assessment’ is to distinguish genuine students from non-genuine ones and to ensure entry of only genuine students in Australia universities and AHC consider not only the profile but also the ‘intentions’ of an international student. Hence, students with good profiles may not necessarily be ‘GTE compliant’
GTE Assessment is conducted at three levels:
“GTE – Genuine Temporary Entrant”
Student’s reasons for choosing to study in Australia and reasons regarding not choosing to study in other countries
Student’s reasons for choosing to study in his preferred university and comparison with other universities in Australia
Student’s future plans, organizations he intends to work with, designations he expects to work at and salary he expects to receive after his studies are over
