Overseas Students

Leo Cussen Centre for Law has a long history of making overseas students welcome, ensuring a productive and enjoyable experience.

If you are on a student visa and have graduated in law from an approved Australian university, you are eligible for onsite Practical Legal Training at Leo Cussen. If you are on another type of visa you may also be eligible to apply for the online PLT course, subject to the conditions of your visa.

It is expected that international students will have greater English language proficiency than that required of entrants to undergraduate law courses. As a guide, overseas students are expected to have a proficiency of greater than 6.5 overall, with no individual band less than 6.0, as determined by the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Please note that Leo Cussen does not engage agents for the purposes of recruiting overseas students.
