A student visa is a special endorsement affixed to a government passport provided to students enrolled in accredited educational institutions. Non-immigrant visas for students do not need the bearer to attain citizenship. 

Any prospective student who wants to pursue higher education in another nation must first get a student visa. Here, we will discuss Student visa Australia and how you can apply for the same. 

Most nations will grant student visas to allow international students to attend school within their borders. In most situations, however, the student must first enroll in a post-secondary school of higher learning. 

So, if you’re from another nation and want to travel to the United States to study, you’ll need both of these visas:

  • A non-immigrant visa for a brief visit or an immigrant visa for permanent residency
  • A student visa is required.

How to Apply for Student Visa for Australia?

If you intend to study in Australia for an extended period, you must apply for a student visa. We walk you through the application process step by step here.

  • Apply to a school in Australia and get a copy

You must be enrolled in an Australian school before applying for a student visa to Australia. When you get an offer letter from a school, accept it in writing, and pay the tuition deposit, the school will issue you a CoE or Confirmation of Enrolment.

This paper is required to commence your visa application. If you want to enroll in multiple programs, such as a preparatory language course followed by college studies, you will need one CoE for each.  

  • Create an account with the Australian immigration authorities

You can enter Australia 90 days before the course start date written on your CoE if you have your visa. If you have not arranged housing via your school, you must notify them of your address in Australia within 7 days of your arrival.
