Student Visas (Subclass 500)
Granger Australia can help you with all your student visa requirements. Australian student Visas will only be granted to students if your course is registered, or is part of a registered course, on a full time basis.
If you intend to study for 3 months or more, you will need to apply for a student visa. If you intend to study a longer course, you must apply for a student visa and pay compulsory medical insurance (OSHC).
Students from some countries will need to obtain a Pre-Visa Assessment (PVA) before confirmation of enrolment.
Advantages to studying in Australia include:
- you will have access to Australia's subsidised student health cover;
