Anyone enrolling as an international student on a course lasting four months or more in Australia will need a student visa. In order to apply for an Australian student visa, you must:

  • Have an unconditional offer of place at a university
  • Have accepted that place in writing
  • Have paid the required tuition fee deposit

The program you choose must be between 12 and 52 weeks in order to be eligible for a student visa.

For all programs of study, you will need to apply for a subclass 500 student visa. New Zealand nationals wishing to study in Australia should apply for the Special Category visa (subclass 444).

Visit the official Australian Government website to find out more about studying in Australia and Australian student visas.
