Student Visa

 

Student (Subclass 500) visa 

The purpose of the Student visa is to allow international students to undertake full-time education and training in Australia. This visa enables a student to stay in Australia for the duration of the relevant course. The student must enrol, or in some cases have a letter of offer, with an Australian education provider before lodging a visa application. The minimum requirements for this visa are set out below:

The requirement for a student visa:

  • enrol with an Australian education provider as a full-time student, and obtain written confirmation of this enrolment 
  • genuinely intend to complete the relevant period of study in Australia
  • have the required level of English language proficiency unless exempt
  • have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the period of your intended stay in Australia
  • have access to sufficient funds to cover your return airfares, tuition fees and the cost of living in Australia, as well as costs required for any dependents included in your application.

The exact amount of funds a student requires is set by the Department of Home Affairs (DOHA), and is determined by your chosen education provider, your course of study and other personal circumstances.
