Based in Adelaide, South Australia

The Australian Chiropractic College is proud to deliver cutting-edge curriculum in a caring and vibrant environment.

International Students

Applying for ACC

The Australian Chiropractic College is a registered CRICOS provider (CRICOS Provider ID 03943F); and warmly welcomes international students who meet our entry requirements to apply for the Bachelor of Chiropractic (Course Cricos Code 107411C).

Academic Credit or RPL may also be applied for any relevant post secondary study, either in Australia or home country.

All international qualifications are checked against the National Office for Overseas Skills Recognition (NOOSR) database. Should a qualification not be able to be verified by NOOSR, the ACC will endeavour to seek other means of verification. 

All international students must be 18 years of age at the time of commencement.

International students who are accepted into ACC, should be aware of the grounds by which their enrolment can be deferred, suspended or cancelled. This can viewed at the Alteration of International Student Enrolment Status Policy.

English Language Requirements

As well as meeting the standard academic entry requirements, international students are required to have an academic IELTS overall score of 7.0 with no individual language skill under 7.0.

For international students who commence at ACC, we continue to work with them to determine the most appropriate English support on an individual basis if required.

Health Cover

If you are an international student, it is a condition of your visa to maintain adequate health insurance for the duration of your stay in Australia. This means you need to purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and keep your policy up to date whilst you are in Australia and holding a student visa.  OSHC assists international students to meet the costs of medical and hospital care they may need while in Australia. OSHC also includes ambulance cover and limited pharmaceuticals. SA Health provide several fact sheets related to the Australia health system for international students, with particular reference to South Australian services. The fact sheets series can be downloaded here.

Schooling for Dependents

Children between the ages of 6 and 16 must attend school. Children can go to a government (public) school or an independent or Catholic private school. This link provides an overview of the SA education system and this link provides information on fees.

ESOS Act

The Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act), forms the legal framework for the quality assurance of education and training institutions offering courses to international students (students studying in Australia on student visas). The ESOS Act helps to ensure that international students rights are protected, when it comes to such things as receiving accurate information about their course, tuition fees and refund policies, access to support services and complaints processes, and information about academic progress and changes to enrolment.
