    No. Did you apply on your own? I tried asking idp.bu they never answered.back. how did you apply? Can we apply online?

    Hi chelseaxyrene,


    I filed my application at AHPRA WA on my own. When I got my letter of eligibility, I went to IDP to request assistance in finding a school. I went to their office personally and they scheduled me for an appointment with one of the counselors. In order for them to talk to you, I think you need to be scheduled first - they don't appear to accept walk ins. Also, they need you to come in to their office so I don't think that an online application will suffice. They do everything for you for free - find a school, process your visa, help you look for accommodations and best-priced airline tickets. However, around the time I consulted IDP, the Habagat rains hit Manila. I had to reschedule my appointment several times. I realized that I didn't want to wait for IDP to help me with my application anymore. I went ahead and called La Trobe on my own and several other schools as well (including IHNA). I asked how to apply and sent several application forms to to schools. I got accepted by IHNA first and I reserved my slot by paying the 1500 AUD enrollment fee. A month later, La Trobe sent me an offer letter for the June intake and I accepted. My reasons for deserting my IHNA reservation: 1) My slot was in Perth and I didn't know anyone in Perth, 2) I was worried about their accreditation status 3) It took awhile for them to acknowledge receipt of my enrollment fee payment and I got worried. During this time, I made a lot of calls to IHNA and only an answering machine picked up on more than half my calls (I found this disconcerting). I think the payment of the enrollment fee was easier for other people and maybe the school just had so many applications at the time that they did not have time to pick up the phone. Anyway, I found that La Trobe responded quicker, was more thorough, and on the whole, seemed more professional. So I went with La Trobe. IDP does not help with applications to IHNA but they do help with applications to La Trobe and Deakin and UniSA (I think) as long as they are your agent. When I applied to La Trobe on my own, I indicated that I preferred that IDP be my education agent and they honored that. I called IDP and explained that I went ahead and applied on my own but that I indicated in my application that they were my agent, and now I am scheduled for an appointment with them to help me with my visa application.

    I apologize my reply to your post is long-winded but I hope it answered your question to your satisfaction.

    I believe in that because the ETEA will not offer the program for next year intakes if they won't renew their accreditation.

    hello guys! I would just like to ask how long do you usually wait for APHRA Adelaide to give you your eligibility letter. I just sent mine last october 17 and they sent me a confirmation that they received my documents after a week. I got ideas from here and from friends regarding APHRA Vic and Tasmania but with Adelaide i just don't have.

    I wish all good luck in their applications.
    got mine after 3months.

    Hi Annie! I'm sorry it took me a while to answer all of your questions. I don't have the full info yet. I will inform you about it. I have to talk personally to my agent. However, I am quite nervous about their accreditation. I don't have visa yet but I am going to start the process. How come other schools had fixed their accreditation while ETEA is still valid only up to the end of this year? January is almost near

    I don't think ETEA will accept applicants until march next year if they are not confident with their re-accreditation status. It is a reputable institution. There is nothing to worry about.
