Embarking on your visa application journey has never been easier – with the option to apply seamlessly online, whether you’re located within Australia or beyond its borders. A fundamental prerequisite involves being actively enrolled in a recognized Australian study program, underlining your commitment to academic pursuits. Your well-being is paramount, hence possessing Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) or meeting the criteria for exemption ensures comprehensive health coverage. Applications are open to those aged 6 and above, while applicants under 18 are requested to demonstrate a welfare arrangement for their security. If you’re currently in Australia, holding an eligible substantive visa positions you favourably in the application process, paving the way for a smoother transition. Check this if applying while in Australia


Embrace a world-class education in Australia through our visa program, enabling your participation in eligible courses that fuel your academic journey. Seamlessly travel to and from Australia, ensuring you’re never far from your loved ones and home comforts. Plus, seize the opportunity to work up to 48 hours every fortnight during your course of study, making your experience not only educational but also financially empowering. For those pursuing masters by research or doctoral degrees, the work limit doesn’t apply, providing even greater flexibility. Learn, explore, and prosper with a visa that understands your ambitions.
