Student Visas

This group of visas, combining three large groups of students, guardians and people studying at the workplace. According to official statistics in Australia, more than 350,000 student visas are issued annually, including visas for school age children, students in special and language courses, college and university students (undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs).

Education in Australia is considered very prestigious for international employment, and Degrees / Diplomas or Certificates from universities open up many doors for a graduate.

To date, the borders for entering Australia are OPEN, so you can look at the following programs and prepare for your successful migration with detailed further strategy, which includes a location to go to, course to study, and a long-term migration plan. Applicants are currently started studying online and student visa can be issued.

Student visas in Australia imply limited working rights (at least part-time, that is, 40 hours in two weeks), the ability to bring a partner / family. The number of working hours may vary depending on the type of visa and study program. If you begin to work when you started study and gain experience in the profession, this will positively affect your future career and, likely, the migration process.

Recommendations for an Australian Student Visa

When preparing documents, you should be very accurate, genuine and logical in your arguments and statements.

One of the primary documents for assessment will be written statement (GTE) that future student will write in English language. This document will contain all your arguments about your temporary stay in Australia and your intention to leave after completion of the course of study.

When checking documents, the immigration officer of the Department looks at some non-obvious aspects at first glance, which include your country of residence, the rating of the institution and the course you are enrolled in. For example, if educational institution has high rating, you as an applicant will have more loyal assessment. 

One of the main aspects will be confirmation of sufficient funds for living and studying in Australia, where you will need to provide evidence of financial viability. The amount of money required for confirmation changes almost every year (usually in July), and you can always find the current required amount for your visa on the Department website.

The funds should be enough to provide the student, as well as, if necessary, members of his family for 1 year of study.
