    Frequently Asked Questions


    Are Chandigarh University's Online Degree Programs recognized by partner Australian Universities?

    Chandigarh University has a NAAC rating of 3.28. Our University Partners have reviewed the content and pedagogy and post that provided approval for students who complete year 1 with Chandigarh University successfully to be eligible to join 2nd year at their Australia campus.

    Can I join this program without an IELTS Score and attempt IELTS after joining the program?

    Yes, you can join this program without a IELTS score & upGrad will help you prepare for the English Entrance test to establish your current English proficiency to be eligible for the Bachelor’s program in Australia.

    What is a conditional offer letter and how is it different from a confirmed offer letter?

    Conditional offer letters will be issued to you by Australian University Partners based on documents submitted by upGrad. These documents will be academic transcripts of Class 12, work experience certificate and KYC documents. Conditional offer letter is an offer letter which will be converted into a confirmed offer once students meet conditions mentioned in the conditional offer letter. These conditions will be English proficiency conditions, successful completion of course at Chandigarh University and any other condition which university deems fit.

    Can we get an IELTS/PTE/TOEFL waiver, if we study through upGrad?

    To study in Australian Universities, you will have to meet Australian English Proficiency Requirements. Initially, we will apply on your behalf for a conditional offer letter to universities where IELTS score will not be required. But for a confirmed offer letter, you will have to meet University IELTS requirements which will be specified in your conditional offer letter.  

    I have not yet received Class 12 marks, am I eligible to apply for this program?

    Yes, you can apply and block your seat for the program in case you have given exams in 2021 academic year for class 12 and not yet received marksheet. You can block your seat by paying INR 25,000. The rest of the fees will be payable once you receive the mark sheet. You need to score a minimum of 50% marks to be eligible for the course. In case you do not score 50%, you can request for a refund of your block payment as per the refund policy.

    University Partners

    Do we get a conditional offer letter at the initial stage or after completion of the 1st year with Chandigarh University?

    Once you enrol in the Bachelor's Program with upGrad and provide all the required documents, upGrad will submit applications to university partners on your behalf. University partners will release a conditional offer letter within one month of application submission. 

    Which universities will I get the conditional offer letter from if I enroll in the Chandigarh University Bachelor’s programme?

    Once you enrol in the Bachelor's Program, an upGrad counselor will help you choose a partner university and program where you can study after successfully completing the Program. The Program leads to multiple university and degree options (detail can be found in the brochure). Students can make an application to more than one university partner and programme. 

    How many intakes are available for the Australian partner Masters degrees?

    Australian universities generally have two intakes each year: Semester 1, which starts late February/early March, and Semester 2, which starts late July/early August. A number of universities follow a trimester system and have an additional intake in November each year. 

    What will be the alternate option if I could not get a conditional offer letter from one of upGrad’s partner universities?

    This is a highly unlikely scenario. But in case you are not able to get a conditional offer letter despite providing all the documents, you can continue the Bachelor's degree program with Chandigarh University and acquire the online degree.


    Will upGrad help me in writing Academic and Visa SOP?

     Yes, upGrad will help with your Academic and Visa SOP and will also organize training on how to write a good SOP.

    Can we get a PSW visa if we study for this program in India and then 2 years at an Australian university?

    Australian Post-Study Work visas are available to all the students who have completed at least 2 academic years on campus in Australia.

    What are the financial requirements of an Australian Student visa?

    • For an Australian student visa, applicants need to have sufficient funds that are genuinely available to the student to pay for tuition fees, travel, living expenses, and miscellaneous expenses like OSHC (health insurance) while studying in Australia. This can be demonstrated by providing evidence of funds for the first 12 months of studies.
    • Contact upGrad to discuss accepted funding sources and financial documents.
    • E.g. Calculation of 12 months’ of funds is as follows:
    • Currently, the annual living cost in Australia is;
    • Student - AUD 21,041 (INR 10,60,000)
    • Yearly Tuition Fee cost is;
    • AUD 31,360 to 35,600 (INR 17,40,000 to 19,80,000)
    • Miscellaneous Expenses
    • AUD 2,200 (INR 1,20,000)

    Hence total fund required are 10.6 Lakhs + 17.4 Lakhs + 1.2 Lakhs or 30 Lakhs

    How much are living expenses for a year in Australia?

    1. Living expenses in Australia for international students are AUD 21,041 (INR 10,60,000) and if students are also taking their spouse and child with them the additional cost will be AUD 7,362 (INR 4,10,000) for spouse and AUD 3,152 (INR 1,75,000) per child.  
    2. Also, the candidate needs to show an additional AUD 2,200 (INR 1,22,000) for travel and health insurance for the complete duration of the program. 
    3. Some of our partner universities have campuses in regional areas where the cost of living is lower.

    What will be the alternate pathway, if I could not get a visa from Australia after completion of the programme?

    As you will be studying in Chandigarh University program, you will be able to successfully complete the course through Chandigarh University in case you are not able to secure Australian Visa.

    What are the documents required for filing Australian visa?

    At the time of visa application, students need to submit a range of documents; a valid passport, Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE), unconditional offer letter, all certified or notarized academic documents, work experience documents (if any), health checkup (HAP ID), English language proficiency scores, financial documents, evidence of your relationship with your parents/spouse (sponsor of funds), Statement of Purpose (SOP) and debit/credit card for the visa fee (AUD 620).

    What are the part-time working rules for studying in Australia?

    International students in Australia on a valid Student visa can work for up to 20 hours per week while the university is in session. There is no limit on the number of hours students can work during recognised university vacations. 


    What is the process of payment for this program?

     Initially, you need to deposit INR 25,000 as a block amount for seat booking. 15 days before the start of course and once you have Class 12 marksheet available, you need to make a complete payment of the remaining amount. You can opt for no-cost EMI with our partner institutions if you want to pay in instalments. 

    Can I pay in the semester fees?

     Total fees have two components - 1. University fees and 2. articulation fees. Articulation fees need to be paid together at once. You can avail of a 0% EMI option with a monthly instalment and a down payment of ₹25000 to block your seat. If you are availing of 0% credit card EMI, upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions. Your bank may levy GST or other taxes on the interest component of the EMI. University fees can be paid in 2 semesters.
