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.

As a single student, you will need to show you can afford to study in Australia. To do so, you need:
– provide a bank statement (yours of the family) showing a minimum AU$ 21 041.00
+ school tuition
6 months of English study – AU$6 200
12 months of English study – AU$12 400
1 year TAFE study – AU$10 400
1-year University Study – AU$22 000


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.
