Student Visa Information
All international students intending to enter Australia to study must apply for a student visa (an exception may be for students offered a program, such as an English language course, of less than three months). Details of the Australian Diplomatic Offices around the world where applications for a student visa can be lodged are available at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
International students normally must obtain a student visa before they travel to Australia. However, students from selected countries may apply for a student visa after arrival in Australia on a temporary entry visa. Again, details may be obtained from the nearest Australian Diplomatic Office.
