The Australian Government provides an opportunity to international students to study in Australia but as a prerequisite, you’ll have to obtain a student visa for pursuing your chosen course in the country.

Which visa do you need?

The visa you need will depend on the type of study you want to do, and how long you want to stay in Australia. You can find out more about each type of visa on the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) website.
