The process of obtaining your visa is different in each country.
For information about application procedures, contact your nearest Australian Diplomatic Post (Embassy, High Commission, Consulate or Consulate-General) or Australian Education Centre the Australian Government's Department of Border Immigration and Border Protection website to find your local diplomatic office.
Student visa applications are given assessment levels. Assessment levels are determined by:
- Your nationality
- The student visa subclass being applied for (this refers to the type of program you will study in Australia).
Your assessment level will determine what documents (such as: financial records and language certificates) will be required for visa application.
If you are under 18 years of age at the time of visa application you must have approved welfare and accommodation arrangements in place until your 18th birthday.
