Study at top universities in Australia on a student visa. Student visas allow you to study part or full time in universities, ESL programs and vocational training programs.
To obtain a student visa, you will first have to determine your assessment level, choose a course of study and then apply for a visa in the correct category.
Assessment levels are determined by the country you are from. Each country is assigned an assessment level which is determined by the potential risk its citizens may pose to Australia if granted a student visa. Level 1 is the lowest risk and Level 5 is the highest.
These risks are assessed by the actions of groups from the country in question when granted a student visa, particularly if they complied with the rules and regulations of their visa, the laws and customs of Australia and how whether they succeeded in their studies. The higher your Assessment Level, the more evidence you will need to provide that demonstrates your suitability for a student visa.
To find out which Assessment Level applies to you, match the country of your passport with the Australian education sector that applies to your course of study.
After determining your assessment level, you must be accepted into a registered course of study. The Commonwealth Register of Courses for Overseas Students, known as CRICOS, gives educational programs accreditation and you can find a list of all study programs there.
After determining your Assessment Level and being accepted into a registered course of study, you can apply for a visa. The following are the different education sectors and their corresponding visas:
As per the new guidelines in effect from July 1, 2016, the validity of the visa would be in accordance with the duration of the course the student is enrolled in.
|Course Duration||Visa Validity|
|Longer than 10 months and ending in November/ December||Till March 15 of the following year. For e.g. your course ends December 2018, your visa would be valid until March 15, 2019.|
|Longer than 10 months but finishing between January and October||Your visa would be valid for two months longer than the duration of your course. For eg. the course ends in Feb 2018, then your student visa would be granted till April 2018.|
|10 months or less||Your visa will be valid for one month longer than the duration of your course.|
Like in any visa, there are some basic requirements that a student must meet to be eligible for a Student Visa for Australia. These are listed below:
Students enrolled in a full-time study course are only eligible to apply for a Student Visa under Subclass 500. Part-time and distance learning courses do not qualify.
Getting an Australian Student Visa requires the student to be able to prove that he/she is a Genuine Temporary Entrant. Essentially, that means that you should be able to convince that you only intend to travel to Australia for studies and would return to your home country at the end of the course or after a few years of experience. Your Visa Applications are accordingly assessed on various factors, namely;
In order to receive a student visa for Australia, you need to provide proof that you are in good health. You can do so by providing a certificate of good health. The health checkup and certificate can only be provided by the impaneled doctors. You can make an appointment with the one closest to you for the same. Here’s a link for the Empaneled Doctors for India. eMedical Facilities are available in India and often the records are updated immediately. You would be provided with a HAP id which you would need to provide at the time of filling the form. Also, Indian students also need to provide a Chest X-Ray that proves that you do not suffer from Tuberculosis since India is considered a high-risk country.
You can apply for a health checkup before or after starting the visa application. However, getting it beforehand would ensure quicker processing.
Apart from a health checkup, you also need a Health Insurance or an OSHC (Overseas Students Health Cover). At the time of the visa application, you should have an Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your visa. Depending on the duration of your health cover, your visa tenure would be settled so make sure that it covers the duration of your course. The average cost of OSHC is AUS$438 for 12 months for a single student.
Students are required to provide proof of good character which necessarily suggests that you do not have any criminal case against you and/ or you have never been deported from Australia before. Often, a simple declaration of the same is accepted on the form.
We are providing you with all the possible documents which might be required under Streamlines and Regular Evidentiary documents. Remember, since the application is only online, students must ensure that they have scanned copies of all the documents listed ready before they start their online application. Also, please remember that the list of Regular Evidentiary Documents is in addition to the documents required for the SSVF processing.
You can apply for an Australian Student Visa maximum of 124 days prior to the commencement of your course. Also, you can travel to Australia a maximum of 90 days prior to the start of your course.
Under the new SSVF Guidelines. the Australian Student Visa process is completely online. Here are the steps you need to follow
The dependents also apply under SubClass 500 and pay the additional fee required. You must declare all family members on your visa application at the time of submission, even if they do not plan to travel with you to Australia. If you do not do this, later on, your family members will not be eligible for the grant of dependent visas to join you in Australia.
The partner of the student gets a Dependent Visa and a valid work permit for the same duration as the primary applicant. This is applicable only for the Master's degree application.
The part-time work options for students going to Australia have remained unchanged. Under Visa Subclass 500, students are eligible to work for up to 40 hours in a fortnight while the course is in Session and for unlimited hours when the course is not in session (during breaks). The only proviso is that the student cannot start working until the course commences.
