Australia is a colourful and natural wonderland of sunny beaches, crystal blue waters, red desert plains, lush green rainforests and snowy mountain ranges. Much of Australia’s exotic flora and fauna cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Australia has 16 world heritage listed properties with its historic townships, bustling cities, vivid landscapes and exotic flora and fauna all adding to its unique appeal. Australia is a dynamic, vibrant and multicultural country filled with people who are energetic, friendly, confident and welcoming to those visiting or studying abroad.

Canberra Canberra is Australia’s Capital City, and one of the world’s few planned cities. Canberra is a city in a park, with golden autumn leaves and glorious spring blooms. Surrounded by native bushland, Canberra is perfect for getting back to nature. Hidden beneath the leafy surrounds is a thriving modern city with stylish restaurants, hip bars, boutique shopping and a busy calendar of events and festivals. The surrounding region offers more than 30 wineries, historic townships, beautiful coastlines and the famous Snowy Mountains. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) was established in 1911 to create a capital for the newly federated country of Australia. Some 2330 square kilometres (900 square miles) was set aside, 53 per cent of which today remains nature park or reserve. Canberra, the urban centre of the ACT, is a thriving modern city of over 358,000 people. The surrounding rural areas and stretches of natural bushland are home to charming rural townships such as Tharwa and Hall, award-winning wineries and stunning nature parks.

South Coast (pictured left) Canberra is the perfect base for exploring the unspoilt coastlines of the South Coast. Less than two hours drive away, you can try whale watching or kayaking, learn to surf or laze the day away on a beautiful beach.

Snowy Mountains (pictured left) Base yourself in Canberra to explore the nearby high country. A twohour scenic drive from Canberra takes you to the Snowy Mountains, where you can find beautiful alpine flowers, top ski resorts, wild brumbies (native horses), fishing, trekking, horse riding and much more.

A-Z Quick Facts...

Australian Cuisine* Australian food traditions have been influenced by those who have settled in Australia. Throughout the majority of Australian history, for as long as 40,000 years before European settlement, food traditions were based on the native bushfoods of indigenous Australians. Anglo-Celtic British and Irish food was brought to the country upon the arrival of the earliest settlers from the British Isles in the late 18th century, forming the foundation of the cooking of modern Australian for the next century or so. Later, in the 19th and 20th centuries, food began to reflect the influences of Mediterranean and Asian cultures, introduced by many immigrants who arrived in Australia during this period. Nowadays, food consumed by Australians bears the influences of globalisation. Organic and biodynamic, Kosher and Halal food, for example, is widely available in Australia. Restaurants whose cuisine tends to demonstrate contemporary adaptations, interpretations or fusions of these multicultural culinary influences are frequently labelled with the umbrella term “Modern Australian.� Fast food chains can also be found all over the country. British traditions still persist to varying degrees in domestic cooking as well as the takeaway food sector, with pies and fish and chips remaining popular among Australians. Breakfast

The typical breakfast of Australians strongly resembles breakfast in many Western countries. Owing to the warm weather in some parts of Australia, generally breakfast is light but in the colder regions porridge or meals similar to the full English breakfast may be consumed. The light breakfast commonly consists of cereals, toast (with a spread) and fruit. A heavier cooked breakfast will frequently include fried bacon, egg, mushroom, baked beans, sausages, tomatoes and toast with spread. Drinks taken at breakfast include tea, coffee, flavoured milk and juice. Dinner

The evening meal is the main meal of the day for most Australians, and when consumed at home, is often eaten with members of the immediate family or household. The dishes served will vary widely according to the tastes and/or background of the family. Common choices would be roast meat and vegetables, pasta, pizza, casseroles, barbecued meat, vegetables, salad, soup and stir-fries. A standard cafe or restaurant in Australia not adhering to any particular ethnic cuisine might offer sandwiches and focaccias; a range of pasta, risotto, salad or curry dishes; steak, chicken or other meat-based dishes; cakes or other desserts; and juices, red and white wine, soft drink, beer and coffee. *Some information obtained from www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_cuisine

Australian Culture You will find that Australians are generally friendly and informal in their speech, attitudes and dress. It is common for Australians to address others by their given (Christian) name but as a newcomer to the community it is preferable for you to use titles and family names (surname) until otherwise invited. In Australia men and women are regarded equally. They mix freely socially and compete for jobs on an equal basis. In many instances they share accommodation and as a consequence contribute equally to expenses, cooking and cleaning. 4

History of Canberra Located on the ancient lands of the Indigenous Ngunnawal people, Canberra’s name is thought to mean ‘meeting place’, derived from the Aboriginal name Kamberra. European settlers first came in the 1830s and the area was chosen for the federal capital in 1908. Canberra’s special contrast of nature and urban living was planned in 1912 by Canberra’s master designer, Walter Burley Griffin, a Chicago architect who won an international design competition. The provisional Parliament House was opened in 1927 in what was then a treeless paddock.

All CIT graduation ceremonies are robed occasions. Academic dress consists of a black gown with long sleeves, a hood or stole and a black mortarboard (cap) depending on the qualifications. It has its origins in the everyday dress of scholars and teachers in the Middle Ages. Nowadays ceremonial occasions would not be the same without colourful regalia celebrating the achievements of students, staff and family. Graduations are held in March and October each year, however there is also an International Graduation event held in December for international students who are returning home and can’t make the following years graduation. Around 200 international students attend this graduation along with their families and friends.

Orientation

An orientation program is offered in February and July each year for international students who are about to commence study at CIT.

Pathways from CIT to University

Study pathways give students the opportunity to reach their academic goals faster. Certain CIT courses have formal credit transfer arrangements or “pathways” with a variety of Australia universities, meaning that students can receive recognition or ‘credit’ for studies completed at CIT and put this towards a degree at university. The Australian Qualification Training Framework (AQTF) allows for the transfer of qualifications. Universities will consider recognising credit achieved during previous studies so students can use this credit towards a university qualification. Many of our international students choose this method of study to achieve their desired qualification at university. CIT has a number of formal agreements with the following universities across Australia and New Zealand; ff Australian Catholic University CRICOS Provider No. 00873F (ACT)

Australian National University CRICOS Provider No. 00120C ff Charles Sturt University CRICOS Provider No. 00005F (NSW) ff University of Canberra (www.canberra.edu.au/cit-pathways) CRICOS Provider No. 00212K ff University of Technology Sydney CRICOS Provider No. 00099F ff Southern Institute of Technology, New Zealand ff Visit our website to search for CIT courses that have pathways to these universities. www.cit.edu.au/international

Postgraduate

Things to keep in mind.... If you are considering a pathway option from CIT it is important to make sure that you know how many credit points you will receive for successfully completing your course and whether or not these can by used towards a degree at university. For example, students who have successfully completed the Advanced Diploma of Business at CIT and gain entry into Charles Sturt University will receive 128 credit points (2 years) out of a total of 192 credit points (3 year) towards the Bachelor of Business Studies. This means that students can complete the Bachelor of Business Studies in 1 year of study instead of 3 years. This pathway significantly reduces the duration of study for students who undertake this program. You are able to present your CIT qualification to universities other than the ones listed above however, credit points are not always recognised elsewhere.

TAFE Institutes are nationally-recognised, government-funded institutions offering vocational education and training over a wide range of occupations.

VET is offered not only in the public Technical and Further Education (TAFE) system, but also through private and community providers and in secondary schools. It can link to university study options, and provides up to six levels of nationally recognised qualifications in most industries, including high growth, new economy industries.

Courses vary in duration from several hours to three year fulltime courses. They are usually cheaper than university courses, and students may progress to university later on with credits from their TAFE studies. Qualifications include certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas.

The VET sector is positioned between secondary schools and universities and prepares students for employment or further study. This sector consists of public institutes of TAFE and private colleges specialising in one or more areas of study related to future work. – Information from the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR)

Many institutes also provide accredited English language training and foundation studies for entry into university Diploma and Bachelor Degree courses. All institutes and colleges are subject to government monitoring to ensure high standards. For more information on TAFE and VET please visit our website www.cit.edu.au/international

Learn by Doing A group of eight second year students from the Environmental Science course were involved in a koala survey in the forests in the Bermagui area in association with NSW Parks and Wildlife Service and NSW Forestry Service. This area is subject to logging and the presence of a koala population in the area is significant in the management of the resources of the area. Identifying areas of high koala activity is important to ensure that this and other threatened species are not impacted. Due to the low numbers of koalas overall in the Bermagui area and the difficulty in actually seeing a koala, a new method was implemented that did not rely on actually sighting a koala. This involves establishing a gridded sampling methodology that looks for koala droppings around selected sample sites (as these don’t move). The CIT students were involved in teams with local service staff and some college students from the United States. After 4 days of searching in the litter around many hundreds of trees we located a very active area for koalas (based on the number of droppings found) although we did not see any actual animals. This was an important exercise for the students as it gave them practical experience in survey methodology, team work, data entry, navigation through dense forest with GPS, compass and maps and the actuality of the hard work necessary to collect field data.

Facilities and Resources The Centre for Building and Environment maintains a number of high quality training facilities. These include: ff Extensive workshop areas and modern and industry relevant tools and equipment ff Contemporary learning spaces ff Specialist horticulture laboratories and training gardens ff Flexible library centres

Liping Deng, China Horticulture (Landscape) “Because CIT is a TAFE* Institute they teach you practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge. The teaching methods at CIT mean we get real hands-on experience which we gain a lot of knowledge from. All the teachers and my classmates at CIT have been very friendly and welcoming. “The part I enjoy most about my course is learning how to plant a variety of trees and flowers, some of which I’ve never seen before. “My first impressions of Canberra were that it was the ‘tree kingdom’. Canberra is known as the ‘bush capital’ because of the green and natural bushland environment that surrounds it. I enjoy walking around Lake Burley Griffin and seeing all the deciduous trees with their colourful leaves. “My long term goal is to find a great gardening job in Canberra and make Canberra my home. “For other students who are thinking of coming to CIT I would recommend making friends with the welcoming locals so you can improve your English and become a part of the community.” *Technical and Further Education.

2012 International Course Guide


Virtual Enterprises Bringing real business to CIT Business Administration and Business programs use simulated businesses, formerly called practice firms, where students learn how businesses really work, advancing their employability and skill level. Each virtual enterprise follows real-world business practices and trades within a virtual economy. They are formed from a partnership between a training provider (school, TAFE, university, private provider), a real business that agrees to mentor the students and a network of virtual enterprises. Students work as business people, operating their own business and making decisions that lead the business into profitable (or not-so-profitable) outcomes. Through virtual enterprises students trade and interact on a national basis with 150 Australian firms and globally with some 4000 international firms.

Facilities and Resources Our high quality courses are complemented by up-to-date training facilities and resources. Continued commitment to providing a quality learning experience has produced the following facilities and resources: ff Virtual Enterprise – a simulated office environment in which

students operate in an office situation, perform tasks and learn valuable office skills

ff Modern learning environment with access to up-to-date

hardware and software

ff Flexible learning centres

Muhammad Zeeshan Haider, Pakistan Advanced Diploma of Accounting “CIT’s course structure and teaching methodology are so practical that students have no option but to achieve complete command over all the learning outcomes set by their tutor. This is why CIT graduates become preferred applicants within the corporate sector. “I’m very thankful to CIT because at my workplace I am not only able to successfully complete my duties, but also assist my colleagues when they are stuck. “I would say if someone really wants to gain a lot of knowledge then CIT is the place to study. It is the best environment for international students because CIT welcomes and respects all cultures, religions and ethnics. I am in my last semester at CIT and enjoying my studies with my friends from all over the world. “I can see that my strong basis in accounting has been laid down and now I can build as big a castle as I want on it. I will always remember CIT and will keep loving it. CIT rocks!!”

Christopher Allen Samson, Philippines Advanced Diploma of Journalism “I was looking specifically for a course which covers as many multimedia tools as possible with some emphasis on writing, and CIT was able to provide me with a myriad of choices. The pace of learning at CIT is perfect for my creative persona, and it’s not lacking in challenges either. “Because of my deep creative roots I really enjoy subjects like writing, sound and video editing. The classes here focus more on discussion and understanding of the subject matter. Back in the Philippines, written learning was the main model of teaching. “I still have the same views on Canberra as I had the first time I visited. I like the balance of nature and technology; it shows how well-planned the area is. I see Canberra as an emerging ‘haven for artists.’ “While studying at CIT I intend to learn as much as I can about journalism, and to equip myself with as many multimedia skills as I can in order to land a decent job here. “I believe CIT is perfect for artists and creative thinkers, as well as those who have technical and analytical minds.”

Centre staff encourage students’ passion for creating and nurture their talent to help them become the best artists, musicians, writers, technicians and designers they can be. Students are encouraged to participate in interstate excursions, competitions and major events, such as Mercedes Fashion Week, Design EX, the Public Relations of Australia Awards and AUSdance ACT.

2012 International Course Guide


Learn by Doing Practical experience is the key to CIT’s training success and Health, Community and Wellbeing courses are no different, for example the Diploma of Sport Development. This dynamic course allows students to develop skills and knowledge within sports coaching and sports administration by providing practical and hands on experience in this growing field. With strong links to industry bodies such as Cricket ACT and the Australian Football League (AFL) NSW/ACT, students will have the opportunity to plan events while building skill sets as part of the required course competencies. Recently CIT Sport Development students participated in the National Australia Bank (NAB) AFL Auskick clinics in the ACT, providing essential instruction in techniques to improve handballing and kicking skills.

“My first impressions of Canberra were that it was calm, quite, clean and almost perfect. I enjoy living in this city because it gives me the opportunity to experience the Canberra way of life which is ‘safe and protected’. “I have been lucky enough to get an apartment in the City where everything is within my reach for me. Though it is an old building I am happy enough to experience the diversity of the environment. “I would love to stay in Australia and get a good career out of my chosen course. CIT has given me lots of information and access to organisations in the community services industry and has provided a good background of what it is like working in the field.”

Students in the program participate in events that are telecast on a world stage. “Students are involved in the planning and running of the international Prime Minister’s XI cricket match, as well as AFL matches played in Canberra,” said James Dunstan, coordinator of the sports program. “It’s really important for the students to be involved in real life projects so they can deal with work issues once they graduate.”

Sugar Masangcay, Philippines Diploma of Community Services Work “To be honest, my decision to come to Australia and study at CIT was made for me. But if I’d have had a choice I would have chosen CIT after all. “The thing I enjoy the most about studying at CIT is the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds and different ethnicities. Also understanding and learning about the culture of the local Australian students as well as the international students. “I graduated from university back home and for me studying here was a huge adjustment and the methods were very new to me because I hadn’t experienced TAFE* learning before. But so far I’m really enjoying it because it is more hands-on and practical rather than being all about the theory. “The part of my course that I enjoy the most is meeting new people and having the opportunity to get to know them. Simply because this networking helps you know more about the course, learn what it is giving you as a person to be in the career you’ve chosen, and offers you the opportunity to give back to the community.

They are told that the experiences they will encounter working on the project are the same as those they will encounter in ‘the real world’ and that those experiences will be a lesson in the value of adhering to standard procedures, particularly project documentation, and the necessity for teamwork to solve problems when they arise and to get the job done on time.

ff Modern learning environment with access to up-to-date

Another example is the Learning Centre (Library) at CIT which provides a realistic work place environment in which to educate students and facilitate the learning process. This is achieved by providing a practical and experiential environment for students enrolled in the Diploma of Library and Information Services program at CIT. It prepares students and complements the two work placements that they undertake in libraries around Canberra.

CIT’s Information Technology hardware and networking laboratories are recognised as “best practice” facilities for training in building and maintaining computer equipment and networks. The programs provide students with the capabilities to troubleshoot medial or complex network related technological problems.

Diploma of IT (Networking)

“I found out about CIT through my educational representative, IDP Indonesia, who recommended CIT as a great pathway into university. “CIT teaches you practical skills and because of the compulsory work placement in some courses, it really prepares students for a workplace environment. “Canberra is a smaller city than others and though there are less people here compared to other major cities in Australia, Canberra is Australia’s Capital and is still the best place to study!“

The use of simulated environments is a cornerstone to our training. The Virtual Consultancy is a good example. William Nauenburg, Centre Director of Information and Communication Technology, believes that the establishment of the virtual consultancy is an excellent example of how CIT ensures that its students are workforce-ready. The virtual consultancy is part of a multi-phase project where students participate in workplace simulation by undertaking real projects for an external client. The students/ consultants conduct the project from start to finish, including negotiating with the client about what outcomes will be delivered.

2012 International Course Guide


Focus on Engineering Projects in the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Design Students studying the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Design complete a capstone project that integrates all the areas of engineering knowledge gained whilst studying engineering design at CIT. To simulate real world engineering, the project is completed in small groups and based on actual situations, such as designing a solution to an engineering problem within the Institute. To be successful the students must work professionally within their team, clarify and collect information and interact with the client. The groups comprise students of differing abilities allowing each to work to their particular strengths. Each group is given a basic specification outlining what is required and from this they are to produce a fully engineered design with drawings, costing information and instructions for manufacture, operation and/or maintenance. The project is managed by each group with fixed milestones (deadlines) that must be met, culminating in a presentation of their design to the client. Additionally, during the final project the students visit engineering sites to see the broad range of engineering knowledge that is integrated in design, construction, maintenance and operation. For example students have visited the Visy paper plant at Tumut and bridge building sites on the Gungahlin Drive Extension in Canberra.

Sonam Dem, Bhutan Advanced Diploma of Electronic – Technology “I chose CIT because of the course availability and the reputation of the Institute. The course is very advanced and the infrastructures are widely available to students unlike my in country. Studying at CIT gives me lot of exposure and allows me to interact with diverse cultures and lifestyles. “I was very impressed with the infrastructure and the teachers at CIT. They have been helpful from day one. I have enjoyed making new friends and gaining new knowledge. Initially, CIT arranged my accommodation and airport pick up as well. I am still very grateful to CIT for helping me. “Honestly, the course I am studying is very challenging but with the help of good teachers in the electronic department I am very happy with my performance. Practical experiments are the most enjoyable part of my course because they give me practical knowledge with the electronic equipment and make me aware of different kinds of electronic devices. “Canberra is a beautiful place to study especially for international students like me. My turning moment was when the CIT International Services Unit took us for sightseeing in and around Canberra during our first orientation programme. It was very beautiful. “My long term goal is to get the best education I can from CIT and go back to my country to help my organisation.”

time for questions and the teacher usually has time to go through things and help. IT is something I’ve always wanted to do but never got the chance. It is really interesting and I learned a lot in the first semester. www.cit.edu.au/international

Assessment tasks may include practical tasks, reports, in-class tests, on-line assignments, exercises, group work, oral presentations, structured questions as part of a conversation, observations, and/or practical demonstrations.

CIT is committed to continuous improvement of its programs, subjects, teaching methods and administration. Please help us by letting us know what you like and don’t like, and giving us suggestions for improvement.

By the end of the second week of attendance in any subject, your teacher will provide assessment information containing the following: ff subject purpose ff learning outcomes ff assessment strategies described clearly ff due dates of work for assessment ff suggested length of written work or duration of oral presentation ff format requirements which outline how the work will be organised for presentation ff clear information on the criteria for grading and how the results will be drawn together into the final grade ff when assignments will be marked and returned and in what form you will get the feedback from your teacher ff what you need to do if you are having trouble keeping up with the assessment requirements ff information on reassessment/resit/resubmit ff information on how to review or appeal your results (Note: appeals must be received within 4 weeks of results being available on Banner).

CIT’s policy of handling complaints is based on the following:

Principles Institute to improve its service to its clients

ff Staff, students and community members are encouraged

to comment on any aspects of CIT’s performance to ensure continuous improvement and to resolve difficulties

ff Staff and students have rights and responsibilities which are

integral to the resolution of any problems

ff Complaints should be taken seriously by staff at every

level and every effort should be made to resolve identified problems as soon as feedback is received and to ensure that the problem does not recur

Process ff In the first instance, feedback should be provided to the

area which is directly responsible for the subject of the complaint. If the problem is not resolved within a reasonable time, it should be referred up the ‘chain of command’, that is to the person at the next level of responsibility within CIT (for example, your teacher, then Head of Department, then Centre Director etc)

ff Students may choose to use an advocate (such as a CIT

counsellor or CITSA representative) to assist in resolving any matter

ff Students are encouraged to achieve a resolution by using the

CIT complaints process

ff If you are not satisfied with the solution arising from this

process, arrangements will be made for you to access an independent grievance handling/dispute resolution service. A nominee of your choice can be involved at this stage

TERMS AND CONDITIONS - Entry Conditions I have read, understood and agree to abide by the following conditions:

1. Student Visa Conditions You must abide by the student conditions of your student

visa relating to fees, course performance, class commitment (and maintain a valid enrolment for your chosen course of study), work rights and good conduct and where applicable the course attendance requirement of 80% at CIT. If you are judged to have not complied with these visa conditions, CIT is required to notify immigration authorities. This may result in cancellation of your student visa and you may be required to return to your own country. You must also notify CIT within 7 days of your arrival in Australia of your current residential address and must advise any changes of address within 7 days. CIT is required by law to keep your residential address so you can be contacted if you do not satisfy course requirements. If you do not abide by this condition, you may not be aware of any such contact by CIT. This situation may lead to the cancellation of your student visa. CIT will monitor your “Academic Performance and Attendance” in accordance with the CIT “International Student Compliance with ESOS Act Policy” (www.cit.edu.au/current/policies). Under this policy CIT reserves the right to provide to the Australia Government your personal and contact details, course enrolment details and any changes and circumstances of any suspected breach of your student visa conditions.

2. Release of Information The information provided in this Application is required

by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) as evidence of enrolment in a course registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) – http://cricos.deewr.gov.au

2.1 The offer of place and enrolment of the student must be made in accordance with the provisions of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000; the ESOS Regulations 2001 and the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students (The National Code 2007). 2.2 This information will be made available to other Australian Commonwealth, State or Territory government agencies. Information will include personal and contact details, course enrolment details and changes, and the circumstance of any suspected breach by the student of a student visa condition.

3. Payment of Tuition Fees and Other Expenses Where the course duration is less than

one year, the full fee is payable prior to the commencement of the course. The balance of your fees is payable in advance for each semester. An invoice will be sent to you prior to the commencement of each new semester, it will include the date for payment of your fees. Failure to pay by the due date will attract a late fee of $250 and will be a breach of your student visa requirements. If you fail to pay your fees by the due date because you did not receive your invoice due to a change of address and CIT/ISU were not advised of the change of address, the late fee will still be payable. You are responsible for your tuition fees, text books, stationary and any material fees relevant to your course. You are also responsible for accommodation and living expenses and for the purchase of your own text books and stationery while doing the course. Fees are correct at the time of offer but are subject to review on an annual basis.

4. Overseas Student Health Cover As a condition of your Student Visa, you must maintain health insurance cover by an approved Overseas Student Health Cover Scheme for the duration of your visa. CIT’s current recommended OSHC insurer is Worldcare. Under Worldcare’s scheme, your health insurance policy will cover you and your dependants against basic medical and hospital expenses in Australia. This cover will be for the duration of your course (or visa). Premiums must be paid before you can be issued with a Confirmation of Enrolment Form (COE). If you have coverage from an alternative OSHC provider, evidence of this coverage must be produced before a COE can be issued.

5. Refund of Tuition Fees ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments if your course is cancelled. ff The Institute will refund all payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 if you are unable to obtain a student visa to arrive in Australia to commence your course. In this case the refund will only be paid if written evidence of the refusal has been provided by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship or in-country Embassy or High Commission. ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 (and agent’s fees) if you cancel your enrolment in writing 14 days before the commencement date stated on your Letter of Offer. A refund will not be paid if you fail to give at least 14 days notice of cancellation of our enrolment or if the course commencement date as stated on your Letter of Offer has passed. ff In the case of an English language program where you have already commenced studies, a refund of tuition fees may only be granted if notice in writing of a withdrawal from studies is received 14 days prior to the commencement of the next five week block of studies. In this case, a refund may be granted less an administration fee of A$250 plus agent’s fee if applicable.

138

ff A refund is not payable if the student has received a letter of offer with discounted English fees when either the student commences their program late or for part time studies to complete their program. ff Where a student has been granted a deferral of commencement in their course due to a delay in their visa grant, tuition fees paid would be transferred to the subsequent semester. Where the student fails to take up the place in the subsequent semester, a refund of fees will only be granted if the student’s visa is refused. ff In the case of an approved transfer to another Australian Institution, allowable refunds will only be paid to the student. ff No refunds will be paid to third parties. ff All refunds are made in Australian dollars. ff In the case of a refund agreed to by the Institute for a student returning home, the refund will be sent after the Institute is satisfied that you have left Australia. Evidence of travel will be required. ff This agreement does not remove the right to take further action under Australia’s consumer protection law.

6. Incorrect, Incomplete or Misleading Information CIT/ISU have the right to vary or

revise any decision regarding this application if information provided is found to be incorrect, incomplete or misleading.

7. Cancellation, withdrawal or “fast tracking” of your program You must provide ISU

notice in writing, that you are withdrawing from your program at least 14 days prior to the commencement of each semester. You are still responsible for your fees regardless of whether you enrol in your subjects or not. The term “enrolled” into a program is based on your Letter of Offer and or COE for the duration of your course unless you have formally withdrawn in writing and presented the withdrawal to the ISU as previously advised. Failure to give 14 days notice will mean that you are still responsible to pay the tuition fees for the current semester. If you wish to transfer to another institution within the first 6 months of your principal course, a letter of offer from the new institution will need to be provided with the application to transfer. Requests for transfers must be made in writing to ISU. If the Senior Manager of ISU approves a transfer, this will be in accordance with DIAC Policy and the Institute’s Refund Policy and a letter of release will be issued. No fees will be refunded for the current study period (i.e. semester) if notification has not been given 14 days prior to the commencement date on your letter of offer. If you have paid fees in advance of the current semester a refund maybe granted less any Education Agents commission payable. If you “Fast Track” your program resulting in early completion, the full program fees still apply.

8. Additional qualifications Program fees which appear in this guide are based on

per qualification (unless indicated). If you study more than one qualification you will be charged as additional fees based on the additional subjects chosen. You will need to indicate at the time of application if you wish to gain more than 1 qualification.

Declaration I certify that the information provided on this form and attachments is true and correct and understand that, if I am accepted for a place in the Canberra Institute of Technology: ff It is my responsibility to obtain a passport and visa for entry into Australia ff I am responsible for the return air fares, health cover, accommodation and living expenses of myself and my dependents while undertaking the course ff I must pay the course fees by semester in advance ff I must attend regularly and make satisfactory progress ff I accept the terms and conditions set out in the CIT International Course Guide ff I will allow the CIT International Services Unit to provide information related to my studies to my parents, guardians or scholarship provider if required ff I consent to DIAC providing CIT with any information about my visa status from the time of my application to the time of my departure from CIT.
