  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) including the Written Examination (TWE) component - Minimum of 90 overall with a minimum of 20 in Listening, Reading and Speaking and 22 in Structure/Writing.

The Macquarie University English Language Centre (ELC) is an IETLS test centre and also conducts intensive English (ELICOS) programs for students preparing for university entry.

Visa requirements

International students need to apply for a student visa through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

To be eligible, you must have accepted a full offer from MGSM or Macquarie University and paid your tuition fees.
