How to apply for a Student Visa

Whilst holding a student visa you may be eligible to apply for another student visa or other type of visa before your substantive student visa expires.

In order to meet the criteria to be granted a student visa you must select a course from a registered education provider, and the course must be full time. Your country of passport and the type of course you wish to study as well as various other factors will be assessed by the Department of Immigration.
