Australia

The TOEFL iBT® test given in test centers is accepted by the Australian government for visas that require evidence of English proficiency. The government has not yet made a decision regarding the TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition test that is given at home.

Student Visas

All international students need a student visa to attend college or university in Australia. To gain an Australian visa, you'll need to demonstrate your English abilities to the Australian Department of Home Affairs. You can use your TOEFL iBT® scores to do this! Just be sure to check the score requirements of the universities and programs where you're applying — those requirements may be different than the student visa requirements.

For more information about getting your Australian visa, visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.

Other Visas

You can also use your TOEFL scores to apply for a variety of temporary and permanent visas, including skilled migration, post-study work, business, and work and holiday. For more information about skilled migration, including TOEFL iBT score requirements for professional bodies, read Australian Skilled Migration FAQs visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.
