Australian student visas

For generations, Australia has been a hotspot for international students to receive a world-class education in a unique, safe, beautiful and diverse multicultural environment. There were over 188,000 student visas approved in 2018 alone, and those numbers are predicted to rise in the coming decades as Australia continues to evolve as one of the world’s leading education providers.

A student visa allows international school, vocational and university students to undertake full-time study and stay in Australia for the duration of their course. Examples of the types of educational courses you may undertake while on an Australian Student visa include, but are not limited to:

A student visa allows international school, vocational and university students to undertake full-time study and stay in Australia for the duration of their course. Examples of the types of educational courses you may undertake while on an Australian Student visa include, but are not limited to:

  • Primary, secondary and tertiary education
  • English language or ESL study
  • Vocational education and training (VET)
  • Engineering and trade
  • Information technology (IT)
  • Medical training
  • Certificate courses
  • Diploma courses
  • Degrees
  • Masters 
  • Postgraduate study
  • Doctorates 
  • Combined courses and more

There are even non-award courses available on an Australian Student visa as long as they are provider approved and have a CRICOS code. Australia is highly regarded as a place to study, with internationally accredited courses available, world-class, state-of-the-art education facilities, and safe and friendly communities across the country. While studying in Australia, students will also be able to immerse themselves in its rich Indigenous culture, unique and diverse fauna and flora, long beaches, open desert expanses, natural bushland, tropical rainforests and thriving urban centres.

Like the subclass 500 Australian Student visa, certain Visas also allows students aged 18-30 to work for up to 40-hours per-fortnight once your course has commenced. There is also a student guardian subclass for parents and guardians of minor age students, giving young children and teenage internationals access to Australia’s open and inclusive education system.

Our student visa and educational consultants can help you choose the best school, university and education path for you or your child, including public and private education institutions.

Subclass 500 Australian student visa

The basic outline of a standard subclass 500 Australian Student visa is as follows:

  • Stay for the duration of your course or a maximum of five-years.
  • Primary school-aged children enrolled in years 1-4 will generally be granted a maximum of three years.
  • Minimum application cost of AUD$620, unless exemptions apply.
  • Processing times do vary depending on the course type and other eligibility factors.

Conditions of eligibility can vary significantly from student to student depending on the:

  • Age of the student
  • The course that is being studied
  • Personal circumstances
  • Previous visas obtained and more

However, the basic requirements that must be met to obtain a subclass 500 Australian Student visa are as follows:

  • Must be over the age of six.
  • International persons must be enrolled in a course of study in Australia.
  • Must hold Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) or fall within an exemption category.
  • Prove that welfare arrangements are in place if under the age of 18.
  • If already within Australia, international persons must hold an eligible substantive visa.

It is worth reiterating that five-years is the maximum period that a student can stay on a subclass 500 student visa. The length of your visa directly aligns with the length of your course.

If you wish to continue further education in Australia once your course is completed, you will be required to apply for a new student visa. 

In certain circumstances, a subclass 485 Temporary Graduate visa may be applied to extend your time in Australia between 18-months and four-years. If a student visa expires before graduation, a student may be eligible for a subclass 600 Visitor visa to attend the graduation events.

Students that have or do hold a student visa, and complete specific qualifications in Australia within a prior six-month period may be eligible for a subclass 485 Temporary Graduate visa.

Graduates of engineering qualifications under a recognised institution who meet the correct criteria can be eligible for a subclass 476 Skilled Recognised Graduate visa under 31.

If a student wishes to holiday in Australia post-graduation or at the end of their course, they must apply for a new visa pertaining to their unique circumstance.

A student applying to study in Australia can include a family member in their student visa application lodgement. This family member or guardian must be:

  • Your partner
  • You or your partner’s dependent child who is unmarried and under the age of 18

Other restrictions that apply in this circumstance include, but are not limited to:

  • Student visas cannot be granted if a child has turned 18 at the time a visa is finalised. They will need to apply for their own visa.
  • Family members must be declared in your student visa application even if they do not intend to travel to Australia with the student. If this is not included in the application, the family member will not be eligible for an adjoined student visa.
  • A family member can apply as a subsequent entrant at a later time in a separate application, so long as they meet Australian health and character requirements.


It is important to know what is changing and how those changes may affect you. Visa to Australia team will provide you with confirmed and explained changes.

True, real and verifiable opinion from our clients

First, I was so surprised that getting PR in Australia can be so difficult and complex issue for a skilled professional, as I am. I applied for 482 visa with my employer’s migration agent. Soon, it appeared that the agent applied for a wrong visa (!). He thought that my profession was on the long-term strategic skills list but it was on a short term list, and he didn’t check it. Next, he informed me that I have no chances for PR in the future, which was damaging. I spoke to the other two agents and they told me the same. Finally, my friend recommended Piotr and that’s how I met Piotr. Every dollar spent on his service was worth it. Piotr knows all the regional and practical intricacies and his experience is huge. He suggested two scenarios which can lead to PR and now I am on the right path to get PR in the next four years.

Also feel free to share and use the footage …maybe just credit the guys who made it but it’s fine to use!
Chloe and I would like to thank the whole team at Pacific Centre for the completion of our Permanent Resident applications.
Piotr is extremely knowledgeable and a 30 minute appointment with him was equivalent to weeks and weeks of googling information that I didn’t really understand! When I left the initial consultation I had a clear path of my options to make my dream of permanently staying in Australia come true.
Once we decided to go through with the application, payment was made easy by being split into several instalments. The guys and girls managing all my paperwork were on it from the start and it is really true that the quicker you get all your information to them, the quicker they can work their magic.
The online system makes it very, very easy to upload and update any information you need to.
Using an agent really negates a large amount of the stress involved in processes like this and the team at Pacific really know their stuff, even in the ever changing world of immigration rules they were first to keep me updated throughout the whole process. Even during an unexpected extended stay overseas that I had to make, Piotr was available to advise me of what moves to make and what I needed to do.
Thank you to everyone involved at Pacific for the successful completion of our Permanent Residencies! Ian and Chloe Wilson
