Students and their families are allowed to work, so to help you get a job you can also have your qualifications and references translated by our accredited translators.

A student visa is for full-time study, usually 25 hrs per week. Courses less than 12 weeks and for study not leading to formal awards can be undertaken on a tourist or working holiday visa.
It is now possible for people from gazetted countries to transfer from a tourist visa or working holiday visa to a student visa in Australia. Students have to remain with the institution for the first 12 months of the course or the length of the course if it is shorter than a year unless they get permission from DIMA to transfer. This is possible only under exceptional circumstances.
To guarantee quality courses must be approved by the government before they can be included on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). Tuition fees must be placed in a trust account and can only be drawn down according to government guidelines.
The student first enrols in the school and then takes their acceptance letter to the nearest Australian Embassy to apply for the visa. The student visa application fee is currently $290 and registration fees for schools range from $100 to around $300. These fees are non-refundable in the case that the application is unsuccessful. An application may be rejected if the Immigration officer does not believe that the applicant is a genuine student or if the student does not have enough money to support themselves during their stay. Prospective students from non-gazetted countries must do a Pre-visa Assessment before enrolling and applying for a visa.
