How do I apply for a Student Visa?
International students are required to apply for a Student Visa Subclass 500 in order to commence their studies in any of the Australian education institution. Student Visa application process is fairly straightforward. However, there are specific requirements a student is required to meet before applying. The application process is online. You will need to create an ImmiAccount accessible through: https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login
To start the process, the student will need to have an offer of the intended course of study, eCoE (Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment), a valid passport, a proof of financial ability, Genuine Temporary Entrant(GTE) and any relevant academic certificates and supporting documents as may be necessary. Remember, if you have any questions about this process,or need help, we are here to help.

Generally, students are allowed to extend their visas if they are unable to complete the course in the visa duration. However there are conditions that students are required meet before renewing/extending their visa. These may relate to reasons as to why a student was unable to complete their course within the visa duration. Australia and Canada has almost similar visa processes. The key to getting your visa renewed is to make sure that you are always within the law and comply with all the visa conditions including excelling in your studies.
Students may also choose to pursue an additional program after successfully completing the initial program, in this case they would apply for another student visa provided they meet the set requirements as outlined above.
