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. For more information on (OSHC) please visit. http://www.medibank.com.au

What do I need to apply?

  • Application form obtainable from the web - www.immi.gov.au
  • Visa Application fee
  • Confirmation of Enrolment Form (COE) this will be issued by the host university once the application has been accepted.
  • Acceptance letter from your host university, this will include the proposed study plan.
  • Letter (from your current institution confirming status as a Study Abroad Student)
  • Overseas health insurance receipt (issued when OSHC has been paid).
  • Passport
  • 2 passport sized photographs.

Can I work?

You will need to apply for a visa with 'permission to work’ after you commence study. If you are given permission, there will be restrictions on the number of hours you will be allowed to work in a week. As an international student, you can work a maximum of 20 hours per week during the term, and unlimited hours during recognized periods of vacation.
