Australian Student Visa requirements

Requirements for Australian Student Visas

You must be enrolled to be studying full time in a registered course or part of a registered course.

Registered courses are education or training courses offered by an Australian education provider which are registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

You must demonstrate that you intend to stay in Australia on a temporary basis.

During the assessment of the legitimate temporary entrant (GTE) requirement, the factors which are considered include: your immigration history, your personal circumstances in your home country, your potential circumstances in Australia, the value of the course to your future and any other matter that is considered relevant to your intention to remain in Australia temporarily.

You must have enough money to pay for living expenses, tuition, and travel, for yourself, your partner and your dependent children for the extent of your stay in Australia. You must also have enough money to support your partner and dependent children, even if they do not travel with you to Australia.

You must meet the following financial requirements.

Travel, tuition and living expenses

The table below outlines the amounts in Australian dollars (AUD) that you need access to. These amounts are the minimum required for this visa. They do not necessarily represent the cost of living in Australia.

Australia enjoys some of the best health standards in the world. To maintain these standards, the majority of visa applicants are required to undertake a medical to be granted a visa. We refer to this as ‘meeting the health requirements’.

You must have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your visa. The OSHC cover can be provided from our partners Bupa or Medibank Health Solutions. Your visa expiry date will be determined by the expiry date of your OSHC.

The level of English is most often specified by the education provider, however a minimum level is required for all students. This must be evidenced at the time of application unless you are partaking in an English (ELICOS) course prior to your main course of study.

You must be of good character to enter Australia. The information you provide on the ‘Character Declaration’ section of your application will be used to assess your character. A police clearance may also be required.

Australian Values Statement

If you are aged 18 years or over, you must declare that you will respect Australian values and obey the laws of Australia.

This visa will allow students to study: English (ELICOS), Certificates I, II, III & IV, Diplomas, Degrees, Masters & Doctorates. Studying in Australia allows students to obtain internationally recognised qualifications whilst experiencing the diverse culture and beautiful sights that Australia has to offer.

What's My Assessment Level?

There are 3 assessment levels in the student visa programme.  Assessment level 1 represents the lowest immigration risk and assessment level 3 the highest. A combination of your country of passport and education provider will determine your assessment level. The higher the assessment level, the greater the evidence an applicant is required to demonstrate for the visa application. Active Study Australia can help you determine your assessment level and help you decide which documents you require for your student visa application.
