A Student visa allows international students to undertake full-time eligible course in Australia. The student can choose to enrol in Higher Education, Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses, English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS), admission in primary or secondary school and post graduate research degrees in a recognised education institution. It enables the international students to stay in Australia for the duration of their course.
You can apply a Student visa application in Australia or outside Australia. The applicant and their family unit may make a combined Student visa application, or the family member/s can make a subsequent Student visa application to join the Student visa holder in Australia.
