Student Visa - Subclass 500

This visa is for overseas students to come to Australia for full-time study in a registered course of study at an approved institution. The study may be at primary school, secondary school, college or university. Maximum stay is five years.

Students will need to have a long-term objective of completing their studies. They will need to have an ongoing commitment to secure a working visa and perhaps full permanent residence. They need to gain qualifications suitable for a skilled occupation on the Skill shortage list.

Some of these students will have a long-term objective of staying on in Australia after completing their studies and obtaining an employer-sponsored working visa and perhaps full permanent residence of Australia. To achieve these objectives, they would need to have gained qualifications suitable for a skilled occupation on the Skill shortage list.

We will be happy to provide you with appropriate advice and assistance on the type of course that meets your long-term interests and may lead to permanent residence. We can also advise and assist you in selecting a suitable course provider for your studies. Also, we can guide you as to which State or Territory you should choose to undertake your studies. The reason for this is that some States or Territories may offer a nomination for permanent residence for students who have taken studies in their particular area.
