That’s it, folks! Stay tuned for our next Education Expert training video series, where we’ll discuss how to make visa application for your student.

Video Training transcript: 

In this video, we’ll explain how to submit an application on behalf of your student. 

Your first step is to identify whether the university or college accepts ‘direct’ or ‘indirect’ applications. To do this, navigate to the provider page, by selecting ‘home’, ‘providers’, and select the provider. Click ‘see more’ and then ‘more details’.

If the top bar here is purple, the provider accepts direct applications.

Here is an example of a provider who accepts indirect applications. When this is the case, the top bar here will be red.

Submitting a Direct Application

To submit a direct application, scroll down on that provider page, until you see the heading that says, ‘application type’. Navigate to the link provided, and use these log in details. Follow the instructions described on the provider’s website, and upload the documents to your student has provided you to the application.

Then, navigate back to the applications page in Sofiri, and change the status here as ‘submitted’.

Submitting an Indirect Application

If the university or college accepts indirect applications (as indicated by the red bar at the top of their provider page in Sofiri), all you need to do is ensure that you have changed the applications status within Sofiri to ‘submitted’. In the field available for comments, you can indicate again that the application is ready for submission to the university or college.

This will indicate to your National Experts Manager that they can submit the application for you and your student.

And that’s it!

A couple of final points to note are that, firstly, as you update the application status, you may find that some steps may be temporarily held for assessment, before you can move on to the next step. This is usually at the status, ‘pending GTE check’, which occurs before you can change an application status to, ‘submitted’. Once your National Experts Manager has assessed the application, you will receive an email notifying you that you can go on to submit your application.

Finally, If you have any questions or concerns throughout this process, please do not hesitate to reach out to your National Experts Manager via email, the LinkedIn Group, or WhatsApp.

Once you have submitted an application for your student, your National Experts Manager will contact you with next steps.

Congratulations on submitting an application for your student!
