What Australian student visa applies to you?

  • Sharebar

Being one of the four leading destination countries for global student mobility (in line with the US, Canada, and the UK), Australia intends to keep its reputation as a good international education provider by offering eight visa types to foreign students. But identifying the right visa type that students need to apply for may be confusing, the reason why the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship encourages them to consult with experts. National Visas, a reputable migration company in Australia, ensures that students are informed about the appropriate visa for their situation.

Know the types of student visa in Australia
570 – Independent ELICOS

Called English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students, this Australian student visa applies to those looking to enrol in a standalone course in intensive English language. The English language course may lead to a Certificate I, II, III or IV, but may not result in a formal Australian award. Applicants may also be eligible for this visa if they want to specialise in other studies with English language as one component course.

571 – Schools
This subclass is for students who wish to start or continue their primary, secondary, junior, or senior studies. Those under secondary exchange programs may also be eligible for this visa.

572 – Vocational Education and Training
This visa applies to those who want to acquire Certificate I, II, III, or IV. Applicants looking to have Vocational Education and Training diploma or advanced diploma, or those wanting graduate certificate or diploma in vocational studies, are eligible to apply. ELICOS seekers cannot apply for this subclass.

573 – Higher Education
Applicants may apply for this visa if they are pursuing a bachelor degree, associate degree, graduate certificate, graduate diploma, higher education diploma, higher education advanced diploma, or masters by coursework.

574 – Postgraduate Research
This visa is applicable to those taking masters and doctoral studies in Australia.

575 – Non-Award
Applicants looking to take further education that does not lead to a recognised award may apply for this visa. Courses may be any full-time course, a component of other courses, or a non-award foundation stud.

576 – AusAID or Defence
Students undertaking any type of course may apply for this visa if they have been sponsored by AusAID or the Australian Department of Defence.

580 – Student Guardian
Guardians of students who need to accompany an applicant whilst they study in Australia need to apply for this visa.

Student visas for Australia are processed like other visa types, but applicants may be eligible for streamlined visa processing if they are found to be of lower immigration risk. This may be determined with the help of a National Visas agent, who will be at service to provide other relevant information pertaining to your visa.
