Study English in Australia: ¿6 o 12 months? 

Study English in Australia is one of the best ways to live and enjoy this country. Not only will you learn the language, which will surely be a personal and professional benefit, but you will also have the opportunity to live and work in one of the best countries in the world. Many of our students decide to take an English course and then study another certificate or program related to their profession, or simply want to come to live the experience in Australia and study English seems to be the best option.
One of the main inquiries we receive from our students on this subject is what time they need to take the course. In general, our students doubt between coming to study for 6 months or 12 months, but making the final decision is not that simple. There are several factors to consider when choosing, which is why in this video Chechi describes above all the price difference and other advantages you get when deciding to come for a year.

Talking about costs, coming to study English in Australia implies:
Student Visa Payment: This cost is AUD 628.19, for any course you take and of any length. This also implies that every time you decide to apply for a student visa you must pay this amount again.
Payment of the English course: which usually includes paying tuition, Medical Insurance and the Course itself. Generally, for a 6-month course, this cost is AUD 6000 (approximate), while for a 12-month course it is AUD 9000 (approximate).

Also, another factor to consider is the payment options in instalments, which also varies based on the length of the course you take. Usually, it varies between 2 to 4 payment times.

There are in turn many factors for which we recommend our students to take a 12-month course instead of just coming for 6 months.
