What is the CoE?

CoE, standing for Confirmation of Enrollment, is an official letter issued by an Australian University or College. The CoE is to confirm that you have legally enrolled in a recognised course at a registered provider and have paid the required deposit and Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) to secure your place. CoE, therefore, includes all necessary information of your personality and your course/s (e.g, your name, date of birth, passport number, name of the course/s, name of the institution that you have enrolled in, tuition fees, commencement and completion dates). 

Why do international students need a CoE?

CoE is crucial for international students because it is a compulsory documentation for a student visa application. If you do not submit a CoE to the Australian Department of Home Affair, you will not be granted a student visa.  

Why must pay a deposit?

It is the Australian university and college policy that you must pay the course deposit (or tuition fee for one semester) to get a CoE. The education provider wants to make sure that you are willing to take its course, and you actually do an action to secure a place in this course.  

The amount of deposit that you need to pay depends on each university/college, but for higher education courses, the deposit is normally equivalent to the tuition fee of one semester. For English (ELICOS) and Vocational training (VET) courses, the deposit can be less than one semester’s tuition fee but varies as each college issues a different deposit policy. You will receive an email from the university/college, informing you exactly how much you will need to pay to secure your study place.
