ACCOMMODATION/ AIRPORT RECEPTION

Photo supplied by Tourism WA: Arial View of Perth City

TAFE is unable to offer students on-campus accommodation within the Perth metropolitan area. We do have on-campus accommodation at some of our regional campuses. For students studying at our metropolitan Institutes we recommend that they book temporary accommodation for the first few weeks or homestay accommodation for the first month after arrival. This will allow students time to make longer term accommodation decisions. To book homestay accommodation please contact our accommodation provider Australian Homestay Network (AHN) at www.homestaynetwork.org

Underage students
Students who wish to commence study at a TAFE Institute must be over 18 or turning 18 in the same semester that they commence their course. Whilst a student is under the age of 18 they are required to have a local guardian until they turn 18. If the student intends to live with a relative in Perth the relative can nominate to be the guardian. If the student does not nominate a relative, then ETI requires students to live in homestay accommodation organised by AHN. Once this accommodation is arranged, ETI will issue the welfare letter (CAAW) and act as the local guardian for the student.

Rental accommodation
Many students choose to rent an apartment or house with other students. A typical four-bedroom house in Perth is currently renting at around $400 per week. A two-bedroom apartment rents for $300 – $350 per week. Students who are sharing these costs need to budget for around $150 per week to cover their share of the rent plus electricity and gas. For more information on available rentals please visit the following real estate websites: www.reiwa.com.au or www.realestate.com.au

Temporary accommodation
Students can choose backpacker hostels from $30 per night or budget hotels from $100 per night. There is a large range of temporary accommodation offered in Perth which students can search for through the internet and book online.

Homestay
Homestay is when students choose to live with an Australian family. This is very popular because students make Australian friends, embrace the Australian lifestyle and improve their English. Homestay costs between $245 – $265 per week depending on age and level of service. There is also a homestay placement fee of $200. Bookings must be made at least two weeks in advance. Late bookings will incur additional fees. Homestay options are:  Full service – $265 per week, includes 3 meals per day.  Half service – $245 per week, includes 2 meals per day. The fee also includes laundry, snacks, electricity and gas. For more information about homestay and to make a booking contact Australian Homestay Network (AHN) at www.homestaynetwork.org
2012 INTERNATIONAL COURSE GUIDE

Airport pickup
Airport pickup can be arranged at a cost of $90 and will take students directly to their homestay family or temporary accommodation. Please contact AHN (www.homestaynetwork.org) to organise this service. A taxi from the airport to central Perth costs approximately $50. An airport bus ($20) is also available and can drop passengers at central city hotels.

Getting started
Students should arrive in Perth with at least $1,000 and have access to another $2,000 during their first few weeks for expenses associated with organising housing. Funds may be needed to pay bond on rental accommodation or for other services.

Students can earn $15 – $20 per hour depending on skills and experience. Students should not rely on their earnings to pay tuition fees.

SAMPLE WEEKLY BUDGET (AUD) Rent – shared accommodation (average) Gas, water, electricity, phone (landline) Food Public transport $150 $80 $100 $40 $50 – $100 $420 – $470

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

This cover will give access to one of the best health systems in the world at a very reasonable cost. ETI’s preferred OSHC partner is OSHC Worldcare. ETI will arrange your cover for you. Students will be advised of their OSHC fees when they receive their offer letter and statement of accounts.

Aquaculture students study at the Broome Aquaculture Centre which has a state of the art hatchery and science laboratory where finfish, molluscs and crustaceans are cultivated under controlled conditions. Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management students learn about bio diversity and cultivation of indigenous Australian species which are emerging as a source of traditional food and medicine. You will study with Aboriginal people who are experimenting with “enrichment planting” techniques that build biologically diverse environments to cultivate sustainable crops on traditional Aboriginal lands. Kununurra is the heart of the Ord Valley’s horticulture area. It brings many opportunities to travellers, like seasonal work, from mangoes to melons. The Kimberley’s natural wonders entice them to stay and with various training and work opportunities, who wouldn’t stay. From tropical horticulture, commercial forestry, commercial gardening and landscaping, local fruit and vegetable production and even remote community food production. Broome is a renowned tourist centre where you will find some of the best beaches in the world and unique remote environments where you can explore the best the Kimberley has to offer. Tourism and hospitality students can work with tour companies who run cultural and outback adventures. People come to the Kimberley to have an adventure, immerse themselves in the awesome landscape and experience the outback.

TAFE WESTERN AUSTRALIA

HOW TO READ THIS COURSE GUIDE
The course guide that follows contains detailed information about courses available to international students at TAFE Western Australia. Information about all the courses offered to international students at TAFE can be found at www.eti.wa.edu.au All the courses offered by TAFE to international students are registered on the Australian Government Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) and are full-time. Full-time study at TAFE is generally 20 hours of training per week across three to four days. TAFE has very flexible entry. Most students will be eligible to enter a TAFE course at some level as long as they meet the basic academic requirements and English language level. Students who do not meet the required English standard can study ELICOS (English) at TAFE prior to the start of their main course. TAFE courses are generally made up of connecting courses that build on each other (pathways). There are often two or more entry points (year 10 and year 12) and students can exit the course at the completion of any stage. The example below is typical of a TAFE course structure. In this example, students who have the equivalent of Australian Year 12 will complete the Diploma level in 1 year. If a student has a lower education level then they commence at the Certificate III level and will complete the Diploma in 1.5 years. We suggest that when filling out the application form, students enter the highest level of the course they wish to complete eg: Diploma of Business and we will work out the best and most appropriate pathway for you.

Online Delivery
As learning styles vary across the Campuses, there may be some courses that will now include an online delivery component as part of the course delivery. Students will have access to computers and resources at the campus they attend as part of this learning strategy. More information will be made available at Orientation Day or students can contact the campus direct for more specific information.

“Back in Mauritius I was a graphic designer and I wanted to diversify my skills to expand my creative horizons. Studying Mass Communication was one of the best things that happened to me. I wrote, directed, produced and edited a short documentary and I became the Design Editor of SLIM. Two great challenges that turned out to be major successes.

Course Transfer
ETI does not charge an application fee. However ETI reserves the right to charge an administration fee of not more that $230 (per change) to students who request a course transfer within a semester study period. After receiving an initial offer students will be given one opportunity to change to an alternative study program but all subsequent changes may incur an administration charge. This charge will be at the discretion of the Manager, Student Services and will not be levied where the course change has resulted in an error by ETI or because of a change or cancellation to a course. Students should think carefully about their study program before they apply and should avoid changing programs.

Results & Certificates
A Statement of Results is issued to all students at the completion of each semester. For units not satisfactorily completed, students may have the opportunity to undergo re-assessment at the end of the semester. Students will be required to pay additional fees for reenrolments and re-assessments. If students do not complete all the requirements of the course, they may apply for a Statement of Attainment which will record the outcomes you have achieved towards the qualification.

Recognition of Prior Learning/Exemptions
TAFE provides opportunities for students to claim exemptions or RPL. Students will enrol in the standard program and on arrival in Perth can present past study evidence to TAFE lecturers who will assess the exemption request. Students will need to provide evidence of previous qualifications (including the detailed subject descriptions) as well as any relevant work experience. Students may apply for exemptions or RPL within one week of the course commencement date. While there is no fee reduction for students granted RPL or exemptions, where possible, students will be encouraged to enrol in additional subjects/ modules that may enable them to reduce the duration of their course – in which case a new COE will be issued.

Provider Transfer (Release Letters)
The National Code restricts the capacity of students to transfer to other providers prior to completing six months of their principal course (that is the student’s main course of study or that leading to the highest qualification on the student’s current visa). Students on packaged university programs should be aware that changing course or provider may affect their packaged visa. ETI will only agree to release students in specific special circumstances. Students wishing to apply for a letter of release will need to apply in writing to the Manager, Student Services at Education and Training International.

Deferral or Suspension of Study Course Progress & Attendance
All students must be enrolled in a full-time CRICOS registered course. ETI is required to report to DIAC instances where a student fails to make academic progress in two consecutive study periods. All students are notified beforehand, of the Institute’s intent to report to DIAC and are provided with 20 working days to access the complaints and appeals process. Academic progress is reviewed in each study period. International Students are required to ensure they repeat any subjects/modules failed in that period so as to ensure completion of their course within the duration specified on their COE. Detailed information on the Academic Progress Policy and the Complaints and Appeals Process is available at www.eti.wa.edu.au and will be covered in the International Student Orientation program at each Institute. Students enrolled in ELICOS programs will be subject to attendance requirements. These requirements will be explained to students at orientation and information is also available at www.eti.wa.edu.au. Students need written permission from ETI to defer or suspend their course. In cases where permission is granted, DIAC will be advised. ETI is required to advise DIAC when a student fails to commence a course, withdraws before the course ends, or changes course.

Complaints & Grievance Procedure
Any appeals, complaints, disputes or grievances will be handled in accordance with the policies and procedures of Education & Training (ETI). Further information on these procedures can be obtained by emailing the Manager, Students Services at admissions.eti@dtwd.wa.gov.au

Permission to Disclose Information
From time to time we may need to contact a parent, guardian or agent to discuss matters concerning a student’s tuition payment status, welfare and academic progress. To do this, we require a student’s permission. Permission is sought in a declaration on the application form. Please note this includes providing exam results if requested. Personal information may also be made available to Commonwealth and State Agencies pursuant to obligations under the ESOS Act 2007 and the National Code.

Late Arrival
Students who are unable to arrive on time may be given up to one week to commence. After one week the student cannot be guaranteed a place in the course. If the student arrives after the agreed date, they will be placed in an English language program until the next available commencement date for the course or may be required to return home.
