All other applicants


All other applicants enrol via our online application.

There are two stages to this online application.

Both Stage 1 and Stage 2 contain sections where you are required to upload documents. We would encourage you to have these documents ready before starting the application.

Stage 1

You will be required to upload the following documents:

  1. Certified copy of proof of identity (Passport/Driver's License/Citizenship/Birth Certificate)
  2. If your proof of identity document has a different name to your current name, please provide a certified document stating your change of name (Marriage certificate/Proof of Divorce/or other Legal Name-Change document(s))
  3. Non-Certified proof of higher learning (Year 12 or Cert IV and above)
  4. This proof is needed whether you are applying for a VET Student Loan or not.
  5. If you are applying for RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) please make sure you download all relevant information from our website and follow the procedure dictated there http://www.aifc.com.au/recognition-of-prior-learning/

If you have not completed Year-12 or a Cert IV and above, you will need to sit a government-prescribed Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test. More information can be found within the application.

Note: On the completion of Stage 1 you will receive an acknowledgement email and your application will be sent to one of our Regional Directors for a brief assessment. Once the Regional Director has approved your application, you will receive another e-mail with a link to Stage 2 of the application. The link is exclusively sent to the applicant, so ensure you check your Inbox and Junk Mail folder.

Stage 2

Here you will be required to upload the following documents:

  1. Passport sized photo – Does not need to be certified
  2. Certified copies of Australian Citizenship / Australian Birth Certificate / Proof of Residency. (NB: This information is required for students who are applying for VET Student Loans)
  3. Your USI details. Please see this Video to know more about a USI. You could also follow this link to learn a step by step process on How to Create Your USI.

aifc Student Services will be notified when you have completed stage 2 of your application. Should any more documentation be needed, you will be notified. Your Confirmation of Enrolment and access to the Online Learning Platform, will only be issued once all required documentation has been provided to aifc.


Note: VET Student Loan applicants


aifc Student Services will only issue you a VET Student Loans application when certified proof of eligibility (proof of citizenship) has been received. Once this documentation is provided to aifc, we will give the department your enrolment information, including the nearest applicable census day, through the eCAF system. You will then receive an email from the department allowing you to sign into the eCAF system. Once you sign-in, you will need to verify the pre-populated information and complete the mandatory fields. You can then submit the eCAF, which will cause the system to email you a copy of your completed form. You must then give this form to aifc.

You will not receive a Confirmation of Enrolment, or access to the Online Learning Platform, until your VET Student Loan form is completed.
