Studying in Brisbane
Brisbane is one of the fastest growing cities of Australia. Our campus is conveniently located close to Central Railway Station, Central Bus Services and the centre of Brisbane City. Australia is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world with migrants from more than 170 countries. Brisbane is a comparatively safe and clean city to live in. It offers a high standard of living, excellent health and educational facilities, and cosmopolitan shopping centres.
Yearly living expenses in Australia are approximately from AUD$18,610 plus 35% for each family dependant. (Note: School age dependants are required to pay tuition fees for their education in Australia).
Study periods are divided into terms. Please contact the institute for detailed breakdown on terms for all qualifications. As per DIAC regulations, overseas students are required to study with a minimum of 20 contact hours per week on a full-time basis. Students are required to follow class schedules / time tables as planned by CTI.
CTI classes are Monday-Friday from 9am-1.15pm or 1.45pm-6pm. Please note that all programs are in full-time mode and cannot be undertaken part-time or via distance education.
Recognition of prior learning
RPL is the process that recognises skills and experience you currently have regardless of where and when the learning occurred. To apply for Recognition of Prior Learning you will need to complete the RPL form, which can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. After completing the RPL form please scan and attach all your supporting evidence. RPL procedures are detailed in the RPL Application form.
All students have the option to be assessed in order to ascertain whether their Language Literacy and Numeracy skills are sufficient to successfully complete the training program. Those who require further support will be advised to seek this with a qualified expert; there are a number of training organisations able to provide this service. Suitable courses will be discussed at intake interview. Any costs incurred will be the responsibility of the student.
