Australian Student Visas
You cannot travel to Australia and expect to study longer
than 3 months without the appropriate visa!
If you intend to study for more than 3 months, you must apply
for a Student visa.
To obtain a visa to study in Australia you must be fully
enrolled in an Australian institution and receive a “Confirmation
of Enrollment (COE)”. These forms are issued by the
Australian institution you will be attending. The forms are
usually issued after the tuition fees have been received.
Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is compulsory and you
will not be able to apply for your student visa until you
have purchased a policy recommended by your host university.
