Australia Student Visas
TOEFL® Scores are Accepted for Both Australian Student Visas and Course Admissions
For more than 45 years, Australian institutions have accepted TOEFL® scores for admissions. Now students from around the world can also use their TOEFL scores as part of their student visa applications, which means you only need to take one test to apply to a university and for a visa in Australia.
The new visa requirements apply to all student visa applications lodged on or after November 5, 2011. Get more information about applying for Australian visas.
On the visa application, where it asks you to provide a "test certificate number" for your English-language proficiency test, use the Registration Number found on your TOEFL score report.
