What is Student visa for Australia

Australian Student visa comprises 8 subclasses (subclass 570 - 576), based on the education sector of your main course.

A further subclass of student visa, the Student Guardian (Subclass 580) visa, provides for certain persons to reside with a student under 18 years of age in Australia, where that student requires a guardian.
 

The Australian Government operates an overseas student program (OSP) that allows people who are not Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents to study in Australia.

If you want to study under this program, you must obtain a student visa before you can commence a course of study in Australia.

You can be granted a student visa only if you wish to undertake a registered course or part of a registered course on a full-time basis.

A registered course is an education or training course offered by an Australian education provider who is registered with the Australian Government to offer courses to overseas students.
