The purpose of this visa is to allow international students to undertake full-time education and training in Australia. This visa enables a student to stay in Australia for the duration of the relevant course. The student must enrol, or in some cases have a letter of offer, with an Australian education provider before lodging a visa application. You can apply to undertake two or more courses on your Student Visa where there is clear progression from one course to another.
As part of your student visa application the department will assess to see if you are genuinely going to stay in Australia temporarily.
