Step 2: Receive your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) - Section contents

You will need your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) to apply for your student visa. You will automatically receive your CoE once the University has verified your International Student Acceptance and Payment Agreement.

Step 2 of 13

The Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) is an official document issued to international students by universities in Australia. It confirms that you have accepted a place in a course, and have paid your tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover premium (OSHC).

Your CoE must be submitted as part of your student visa application.

You will receive your CoE within 10 working days after submitting your International Student Acceptance and Payment Agreement. It will be sent to the email address you listed in the agreement. If you haven't received your CoE after this time, please contact Stop 1.


What can I do while I'm waiting for my CoE?

  • Start planning your subjects and course. Course planning takes a lot of time and thought as you consider your study options. Make a start now.
  • Check the Handbook. This is the definitive source of subject information. Explore all the subjects you might be interested in taking.
  • Read the International Student Briefing. Reading this briefing is a requirement of studying in Australia, as it includes important information on subjects including accommodation and tenancy rights, working rights, Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and emergency contacts.

I have received my CoE. What's next?
