Student Visa

The migration law prescribes different types of student visa for overseas students to study in different level of courses in Australia. A student visa application is generally a two-step process: firstly the student applies for an offer with a school; secondly, after an offer is made to the student, the student applies for a student visa with the immigration department (and the student must accept the offer and be enrolled in the school before a visa can be granted).

Applying for a position in a school is not as simple as it sounds, rather, it should be a cautious exercise. Harsh consequences could flow from an improper selection of study program.

One obvious example is migration. Arguably, many overseas students choose to study in Australia for a dominant purpose of gaining permanent residency. However, many overseas students only find themselves unqualified for migration after they’ve arrived in Australia because of the courses they previously selected do not satisfy the relevant migration requirement.

It thus worths emphasis that careful planning is essential for any student intending to migrate to Australia through study. Prospective students are encouraged to seek professional legal advice from a qualified Australian migration lawyer to make sure the courses they intend to study, upon completion, would qualify them for permanent residency.

Students must be mindful with agents who hold themselves out as the “official representative” or “official agent” of a university or college. While the title creates an impression that the agent has the power or discretion to issue an offer, the reality in most cases is the very opposite – the agent has no such power at all but rather, an entitlement to a lucrative “commission” upon each successful referral of student to the school it represents.

In short, to study in Australia is a big decision in many aspects: the significant amount of money, the period of time, and its potential pathway to migration.

As a professional law firm, Aushine Lawyers do not have any commercial connection, either direct or indirect, with any Australian education providers. It is with this independence that we guarantee we always provide students with comprehensive and objective information that would enable students to make an informed decision of their own. Further, our professional knowledge and extensive experience in student visa regulations is the best assurance for a successful student visa application.
