Student Visa

With a world-class university system and top ranking colleges and trade apprenticeships, Australia is a great place to study and train in the occupation of your choice. Anyone enrolling as an international student on a course of study lasting three months or more in Australia must apply for a student visa.

If you don’t meet the criteria for skilled migration, we have other options available. By applying for a student visa you can study for a degree or learn a trade in Australia, and after completing your course transfer to a permanent residency visa.
