How long does it take to get my student visa?
If you are clear about what you want to study , where and when, we can process the school enrolment in less than a week if required. FAST!
However, the administration of schools can take some time to process admissions. Furthermore, we recommend you take your time to make a decision and talk through all your options with us.
There's no rush, we are here to help you find the best option according to your needs and expectations.
If you’re offshore (not in Australia) we recommend that you start the process 6 months before your trip. The reason? You will be able to get your visa approved earlier which will allow you to buy your flights with time and get cheaper prices.
How long can you stay in Australia on a student visa?
The length of stay is based on the course you intend to study, a 6 month course gives you 7 months of visa and a 12 month course and 24 month course + will give you additional 2 months on the visa and the only initial price difference is the cost of insurance you pay in full when your visa is lodged.
Please note: That if your course is 10 months or longer, finishing in November or December then immigration will usually grant you a visa until March 15th the following year.
How much does a student visa cost in Australia?
The Student Visa (Subclass 500) will cost $710 this includes the online payment surcharge as is paid to immigration when we lodge your visa application.
Onshore: if you applied for your current visa (that you’re on now) from inside Australia then Immigration add on an extra charge of $700. Therefore, with the online payment surcharge you will pay $1410 to lodge the visa application.
Offshore: You do not have the extra charge and it will be $710
Can I work while studying in Australia?
Yes, once your course has started you are allowed to work part-time which is equivalent to 40 hours a fortnight. Exceptions for term breaks and school holidays students are allowed to work unlimited hours.
Please note: There has been a temporary relaxation of working hours for international students which means that all international students can work full time before their course starts and during the term.
How much is a course?
Most vocational schools are between $4500 and $7000 per year, courses are general such as Diploma's, Advanced Diplomas and Certificates in Business, Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Management, Marketing, project management or even travel and tourism. Bachelor degrees, and post graduate courses at University are usually from $28,500 per year.
What is the first payment I need to make?
To enrol and confirm your place on a course you must pay a deposit to school. This is set by the school and can vary from $250 - $2000+ A deposit is usually made up of your first instalment and any material and enrolment fees the school might have. Then, the remaining instalments of the tuition fee will be around every 10 weeks (per term) and spread across the duration of your course.
