International students who want to come to Australia to study full-time at a registered educational institution must apply for a Student visa (subclass 500). A new immigration risk framework, simplified student visa framework (SSVF) has been implemented to assess Student visa applications. The applicant will be assessed as regular or streamlined based on the provider and country of passport.

If the visa applicant falls under regular category, it is mandatory to satisfy English language and financial capacity requirements in addition to the general requirements. If the visa applicant falls under streamlined category, it is not mandatory to provide the evidence of English language and financial capacity.

You might need to undergo health examinations as part of the visa application process.

Everyone who wants to enter Australia must be of good character and will be assessed against the character requirements.

You must answer a number of character related questions on your visa application form and the information you provide will be used to assess your character.
