The scores from the assessment must satisfy
Applicants not meeting the requirements will need to undertake their own English language training or corrective therapy and retry the assessment when ready.
Send the following documents to MFT:
No deposit, payments, or fees are payable at this time.
MFT will assess your application and supporting documents and notify you of the outcome. If you meet the entry requirements you will be admitted and will receive a Letter of Offer and accompanying documents after the course enrolment fee has been paid. Please note, payment of the course enrolment fee is required before receiving your Letter of Offer (Total‘ under ‘Fees/Payment Details’ of the ‘Enrolment Application – International’).
Upon receipt of the Letter of Offer, please sign and complete the ‘Student Enrolment Agreement’.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU RETAIN COPIES OF ALL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS FORWARDED TO MELBOURNE FLIGHT TRAINING.
On receipt of the documents listed above, Melbourne Flight Training will forward to you:
For the issue of a Student visa, the above mentioned documents should be presented to the Australian Embassy.
International students are required to demonstrate and/or declare that they have genuine access to sufficient funds to be granted a Student visa. Applicants may have to demonstrate sufficient funds to cover these expenses for the first one or two years in Australia, depending on their assessment level.
This helps to ensure students are better able to make the most of their studies and have a safe and enjoyable experience in Australia. Funds should be sufficient to contribute to the cost of travel, tuition, school costs of any dependents, and living costs.
For more information visit the ‘Student Visa Living Costs’ at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
For students who want to work as a career pilot in their own country after the completion of training, MFT recommends that it is better for applicants to obtain the Aviation Medical Certificate of their home country before leaving.
All students must meet Australian Aviation Medical standards before training can start.
International students must have a valid student visa for the duration of their studies in Australia.
Student visas are granted by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Advantages to studying on a student visa include:
If you are successful in gaining a Student visa this will entitle you to come to Australia on a temporary basis for a specified period to undertake study. You may decide to apply for permanent residency upon completing your studies, but you must note that this is an entirely separate process and there is no guarantee that, on the basis of having held a student visa, you will meet the requirements to be granted permanent residence.

I moved to Melbourne from Sydney in December 2008. I had 220 hours and a brand new instructor rating. After getting ignored by all other schools at Moorabbin, Glen Buckley gave me a warm welcoming handshake, made me a cup of coffee, sat down with me and gave me some of his time. He didn’t […]

As well as their high quality training, Glen Buckley and his team work hard to go the extra mile and make sure that every student’s training is completed as effectively and efficiently as possible. After finishing at MFT, I found a […]
