Student Visas

This visa category may be an option for people who wish to study in Australia. The study must be undertaken through accredited and registered institutions.

To be eligible, students will need to meet certain assessment levels, demonstrate English language ability and meet financial requirements. They must also demonstrate that their genuine reason for coming to Australia is to undertake a course of study.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection provides information about visa classes, how to apply and the required application forms.
