Students should also be aware that there are deadlines for accepting offers and making the fee payment. CoEs will not be issued after the cut off date. This is to ensure that students have a reasonable time to get their visa and arrive in time for orientation and the start of classes.


You can apply to study any of these courses:

at KIC Surry Hills campus by completing your application. You can also download the application form from our websites and follow the process described below.

Apply using an Education Agent:

You can apply directly, or you can apply through one of Kensington's approved education agents. You pay the same fees whether you apply directly to us or through one of our agents. However, we do offer special promotional prices from time to time. If you wish to know more about these specials you can either contact our official agents or our marketing department.

Many students choose to apply directly, especially as they can use this website to find all the information they need and submit their applications online. Other students want to use Agents to assist them in preparing and submitting their study and visa applications. If you do not already have an agent, you can find an approved Kensington agent using our agent list (see from agent menu). Our agents are professional, and they need to know all the regulations. Especially they need to know your rights as per the National Code and the ESOS Act. Please check how we monitor our agents. 

Receive your Letter of Offer:

Once we have received your application and supporting documentation, we will assess your eligibility to study your selected course(s). If eligible and there are places available we will send you a Letter of Offer. This letter will be sent to you directly, or through the agent, you have nominated according to your instructions on the application form.

If we have not received all of the required supporting documentation from you, for example,  certified copies of certificates etc., then your Letter of Offer will have conditions listed noting the information you still need to provide.

Please note your place is subject to availability at the time of acceptance and payment.

You must allow sufficient time before your program starts to obtain your visa and make arrangements to come to Sydney in Australia. Each country has different criteria for applying for a student visa. You should acknowledge that the application process may take up to 3 months.
