Direct Entry:

Students who have successfully completed the General English (Upper Intermediate) course at select ELICOS providers will be eligible for direct entry into Strathfield College’s vocational education and training programs. Download the list here.

VET Placement Test:

For admission to Strathfield College VET programs, English language proficiency must be demonstrated by achieving the following minimum standards:

• Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) 500

• International English Language Testing System (IELTS) 5.5 (General Training) or equivalent.

• International Second Language Proficiency Rating (ISLPR) 3+.

If you cannot demonstrate any of these options you will need to take the VET Entry English Test to assess your English level.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Students have the option to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This involves the assessment of learning and experience against the requirements of a qualification and removes the need for duplication of learning – this can save students time and money. For more information please refer to our Pre-enrolment handbook or contact us for more information.
