Student visas


A student visa is a temporary visa which is valid for the duration of your course. You will be required to leave Australia at the end of your course and before the date indicated on your 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 CRICOS registered education provider , and the course must be full time. Your passport nationality and the type of student visa you wish to apply for will be assessed by the Department of Immigration.

The following student visa is available:

  • Student Subclass 500

If you are feeling uncertain about the career path you have chosen and you are thinking about exploring other options for study, you are not alone, it is more common than you think!

Often students choose a course on study based on their family’s interests or because they believe they will find employment in a particular area however choosing a career based on other peoples’ ideas rather than your own often doesn’t turn out to be a smart move.

It is important to think about various aspects including your long term objectives and what type of study would suit your character and personality. We offer resources to explore information to help you decide which path would be the best for you.

Sometimes other things can also interfere with studying and settling in a new country such as feeling homesick, personal problems or you may just feel that the course of study you have chosen is too difficult. We can provide support and also explain any possible implications in relation to your student visa if you change your course.
