Student visa requirements for Australia
To study in Australia, international students will need to apply for a student visa. The specific requirements for a student visa will vary depending on the type of visa and the institution you plan to attend, but in general, the following documents and information will be required:
- A valid passport
- A letter of offer from the institution you plan to attend, confirming your acceptance into a course of study
- Evidence of adequate financial support for the duration of your stay in Australia, including tuition and living expenses
- Evidence of your English language proficiency, such as a score from an approved English language test
- A valid Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) policy
- A completed visa application form
- A recent passport-sized photograph
- Payment of the visa application fee
It’s also important to note that different visa subclasses have different eligibility criteria and conditions, so it’s important to check the specific requirements for the visa subclass you are applying for.
It’s recommended to check the Australian government website for student visa, which provides detailed information on the visa application process and the documents required, as well as information on visa fees and processing times.
It’s also important to note that before you apply for your student visa, you must have a valid Confirmation of Enrollment (CoE) and a valid electronic confirmation of enrolment (eCoE) which is a unique number that confirms your enrollment in a particular course or program of study.
Additionally, students may be required to submit to a health examination and/or provide police clearance certificates, depending on their country of origin and the length of their intended stay in Australia.
