Domestic Students Entry Requirements

Prospective students interested in enrolling for a course at AAIC are required to meet both academic and English language prerequisites. While specific entry requirements for each course can be found on the respective course page or brochure, the general criteria are outlined below:


To enroll in a course, students must be at least 18 years old at the start date of the program. In certain cases, consideration for enrollment of students under 18 may be possible for domestic students, but such cases will be assessed individually.


For enrollment in Certificate III level courses:

  • Completion of Year 10 or equivalent is required.

For enrollment in Certificate IV level courses:

  • Satisfactory completion of Year 10 or equivalent is necessary.

For enrollment in Diploma and Advanced Diploma level courses:

  • Satisfactory completion of Year 12 or equivalent is required, OR
  • Possession of any Certificate III or higher Australian vocational certificate or its equivalent.

LLN Assessment

There are three options for meeting the language, literacy, and numeracy (LLN) assessment requirements:

  • CORE Skills Profile for Adults (CSPA) LLN assessment: This assessment is mandatory for those seeking subsidised training.
  • Internal LLN assessment based on ACSF (Australian Core Skills Framework): An internal assessment is available as an alternative option.
  • Qualification-based exemption: If you have successfully completed a significant portion of a course at Certificate III level or higher, or completed a substantial component in Year 11 or 12 in Australia, you may be exempt from the LLN assessment.
