The Student Visa (subclass 500) allows you to stay in Australia to study full-time in a recognised education institution. As experienced professionals we highly recommend you seek advice before trying to apply for this visa on your own. In order to better regulate this visa, The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has become increasingly strict when assessing your genuine temporary entrant status. They review your circumstances, your immigration history, if you are under 18 years of age, the intention of your parent, legal guardian or partner and any other relevant matters to make sure that you are a genuine student. You need to be able to prove that your application is genuine, and in many cases, that you have the funds to support yourself whilst you are here and that your only motive is to gain a quality education from studying in Australia.
Before you can apply for this visa you must have:
- applied for and been accepted to study in a registered full-time course at a relative educational institution in Australia
- organised appropriate welfare arrangements for the duration of your intended stay in Australia if you are under 18 years
- have relevant English level to study, unless you are applying to study English
