Which visa do you need?
Subclass 500 – Student Visa
You must have a 500 Student Visa to study in Australia, regardless of your field of study or qualification. 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.
Subclass 590 – Student Guardian Visa
The 590 Visa will allow entry for the guardian of an international student younger than 18 years of age studying in Australia on a student visa. In exceptional circumstances, the guardian of an international student over 18 years of age may be allowed entry.
What Are the Visa Requirements?
A registered course is an education or training course offered by an Australian education provider registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
Your individual circumstances must demonstrate that you genuinely intend to stay in Australia temporarily.
The factors that are considered during assessment of the genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement include: your personal circumstances in your home country, your potential circumstances in Australia, the value of the course to your future, your immigration history, and any other matter that is relevant to your intention to remain in Australia temporarily
You must have enough money to pay for travel, tuition and living expenses for yourself, your partner and your dependent children for the duration 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.
|Expenses||Per Person||Amount required in AUD|
|Travel||Yourself||Return air fare to Australia|
|Family members||One return air fare to Australia per person|
|Children aged 5-18||AUD 8,000 per year|
|Living||Yourself||AUD 19,830 per year|
|Partner||AUD 6,940 per year|
|Children||AUD 2,970 per year|
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’.
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.
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.
What is 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 Migration Education can help you determine your assessment level and help you decide which documents you require for your student visa application.
