Study and Live in Australia

The The Australian Student Visa Program enables international students to explore a wide range of educational opportunities in Australia, from primary to postgraduate study.

The program is tailored to support global academic goals and smooth integration into Australia’s education system. Visa eligibility is determined by a thorough assessment, including checks on English proficiency and financial readiness.

Students can work part-time, up to 40 hours every two weeks, complementing their studies with practical work experience. Postgraduate research students benefit from unrestricted work hours, allowing for a blend of academic and professional development.

Empowering International Students and Graduates in Australia

Australia remains a top choice for international students, renowned for its educational excellence. The government has introduced visa reforms to better support these students, with details pending legislative approval. Stay updated by checking for new information regularly. These temporary measures will adjust to the changing needs of students, remaining in place as needed to support their academic and career goals in Australia. For underage applicants, the government carefully reviews the intentions and situations of their parents or legal guardians to guarantee a safe and supportive educational experience.

Essential Documentation for a Smooth Visa Application Process


To ensure a seamless visa application process, applicants are encouraged to prepare and submit the following essential documents and evidence:

  1. Confirmation of Enrollment (CoE): A document issued by an Australian educational institution confirming your enrollment in the intended course of study.
  2. Academic Records: Proof of satisfactory academic performance in previous studies, including transcripts and educational certificates.
  3. Arrangements for Minors: For applicants under 18, confirmation of appropriate welfare arrangements in Australia.
  4. Financial Evidence: Documentation proving financial stability, including evidence of funds and a declaration of financial ability to cover tuition, living expenses, and travel.
  5. Educational Documents: Copies of all relevant educational documents, including diplomas, certificates, and transcripts of records.
  6. Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC): Proof of payment for the mandatory health insurance coverage for international students in Australia.
  7. Medical Examination Results: A clean bill of health from authorized medical practitioners, as part of the visa application requirements.
  8. English Proficiency: Evidence of English language skills, typically through IELTS scores, meeting the requirements set by the educational institution and visa regulations.

Gathering these documents in advance will streamline your application process, helping to ensure that your journey to study in Australia begins on a solid foundation.


Nurturing the Journey: The Student Guardian Visa

The Student Guardian Visa is specifically designed to enable a parent or legal guardian to accompany a minor student visa-holder, under the age of eighteen, to Australia. This visa underscores the importance of providing a nurturing environment for younger international students by ensuring they have the necessary accommodation, support, and general welfare throughout their educational tenure in Australia.

It’s important to note that this visa comes with specific conditions to maintain its integrity and purpose. Holders of the Student Guardian Visa are limited in their ability to apply for other substantive visas within Australia. They are eligible to apply only for a Protection visa, Temporary Graduate visa, or another Student Guardian Visa. A substantive visa, in this context, excludes protection visas, bridging visas, enforcement visas, or criminal justice visas.

This framework, outlined in clause 590, Schedule 2 of the Migration Regulations 1994, reflects Australia’s commitment to the well-being and safety of international students, ensuring a supportive environment that fosters both academic success and personal growth.
