You will also need to finalise your ‘preparation fee’ of AUD$99.00 (this comes off the total placement fee).
Once we have heard back from your nominated referees, Letz Live will make contact with you to arrange a ‘pre-screening’ interview with you. The pre-screening interview is designed to let you know what we expect from our participants abroad and for you (and your parents) to ask any questions that you might have. During your pre-screening interview, our recruitment team will also arrange a mutually convenient date / time / venue for your formal face-to-face interview with our recruitment coordinators.
Assuming your face-to-face interview goes well (they almost all do) we will happily liaise with some of our Australia boarding school partners regarding your application - from there - we will assist you every step of the journey and look forward to welcoming you down-under!
