  • an Australian NCRC (recommended from an ACIC Accredited Body); AND
  • National Police Certificate/s from your home country and any country where you have lived for more than 6 months since turning 18 (translated in to English).


  • If you are unable to obtain the Police Certificate/s, you will need to complete the Statutory Declaration for Overseas Students.
