Australian institutions have their academic year divided into two semesters. One of the intakes is in February, while the other intake is in July. If you are applying for admission for the February intake, your deadline can be anywhere from October to November. If you are applying for admission in July, your deadline is probably between April to May. The entire application procedure takes a maximum of about 10 months if strategically planned. Each university has its own timelines which may differ between universities. While most of the Indian students aim for the July intake, some courses are offered in only the February intake, so grab it before you miss it out.
