How to apply – steps to starting at Lawson College

When you choose Lawson College for your education, what happens next?

  • Apply
  • prepare
  • arrive.


You can apply by downloading the application form and submitting it directly to Lawson College via email- admissions@lawsoncollege.edu.au or contacting your educational agent for assistance. It’s important you read and understand all the information in the ‘Prospective Student Handbook’ before you complete your application.


On return of your Course Acceptance Form and fee deposit as listed on the Letter of Offer, a Confirmation of Enrollment (CoE) will be sent to you. We will also send you dates and times for your arrival at Lawson College, pre-departure information, and a guide to life in Melbourne as a Lawson College student.

Lawson College can assist you with accommodation and transport options in Melbourne.

You’ll then need to obtain your Visa (if relevant).


When you know your flight details please advise us of your arrival time. If needed, we can meet you at the airport.
You should have accommodation arranged at this point, and once again Lawson College support services can help.

One of the first things you’ll be doing when your feet touch the ground is an Orientation Program to familiarise yourself with studying and living in Australia (for international students).

Our friendly and supportive staff will walk you through the program which includes enrolment procedures, photo ID, timetables, visa and compliance requirements and an introduction to Lawson College staff and to the local community, banking and health insurance representatives. You’ll also have fun visiting local shopping centres and markets.

We look forward to welcoming you on your arrival.
