FAQ

Can I include my family on my Australian student visa?

Yes, you will be able to include your dependent family members on your visa. Their visas will be approved for the same duration as your visa.

Will I be allowed to work while I am on my student visa?

Yes, you can work for up to 20 hours a week.

If I book a part-time course will I be allowed to work full time?

Your course needs to be a full time one so that you can apply for the student visa. If your intention is to work full time and study part time you may consider applying for a Sponsorship Visa.

What kind of course can I book?

You can book any course, as long as it’s registered with the Australian Government to organize courses for overseas students.

I am in Australia; can I apply for a student visa while I am in the country?

Yes, you can apply form Australia, as long as your current visa does not have a “no further stay” condition.

Can I travel overseas while I am in Australia on a student visa?

Yes. The Australian Student Visa is a multiple-entry visa which means you can leave and re-enter Australia as many times as you like during its validity.

How long will my visa take to process?

Most student visas take approximately 2-3 weeks to process, however the timeframes vary depending on Immigration.

Do I need to have Overseas Students Health Cover (OSHC)?

International students and their dependants are required (as a condition of their student visa) to maintain adequate health insurance arrangements, approved by the Australian Department of Health and Ageing, for the duration of their program. Students are responsible for maintaining a valid OSHC cover at all times.

Can I change to another education provider within the first six calendar months of my program?

International students on student visas are to remain with the education provider with whom they originally enrolled for the first six calendar months of their course, or if the course is less than six months, for the duration of the course. If a student is undertaking a pre-requisite course, they are to remain with the provider of the pre-requisite course for the length of that course, and then with the education provider providing the principal course of study for the first six calendar months.

If a student intends to change education provider before completing six calendar months of their principal course as described above, they must seek approval from their current education provider by obtaining a Letter of Release. For students who have not commenced their principal course of study at Curtin, this will be from the International Office and students who have commenced their principal course should contact Student Central.

If after arrival in Australia a student wishes to study a new principal course, in a different education sector to their current principal course, they must apply for a new student visa using Form 157A.

For accurate visa application charges, please check the Fees and Charges section on the DIBP website.

Can I renew my student visa in Australia?

While students are currently enrolled in full-time study, they may renew their student visa in Australia as long as their current student visa is not subject to Condition 8534 'no further stay'. It is recommended that steps are taken to renew a student visa approximately one month before the existing student visa expires.

Please refer to the student visa renewal website for further information on obtaining a new electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE).

What supporting documents do I need to submit to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) when renewing my student visa?

The supporting documents required vary according to visa subclass and country assessment level. Please refer to Visa Information and Document checklists on the DIBP website.

Students are required to bring supportive documentation to their appointment with DIBP. If a student is unable to submit the required documentation at the appointment, on approval from DIBP, they may be permitted a short duration to produce this documentation for it to be considered for the student visa application.

Can I apply for Australian citizenship after completing my studies?

You may want to extend your stay in Australia for further study, graduation, a holiday, work or migration. You should be able to obtain a new visa to enable you to stay on and even work towards permanent residence and citizenship if you are eligible, provided you do not have a 'No Further Stay' condition on your current student visa. Please visit the DIBP website to obtain more information on the types of visas available and the application procedure.

What is streamlined visa processing (SVP)?

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the department) will assess student visa applicants who lodge their applications on or after 24 March 2012, with a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from a participating university in Australia at Bachelor, Masters or Doctoral degree level as though they were a lower migration risk (similar to the current Assessment Level 1), regardless of their country of origin.
