Migration Agents Who Can Help You With Your Australian Study VisaThe student experience in Australia is truly multicultural.
There are as many as 758,154 international students from all parts of the world studying in Australia up to December 2019, according to the Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment. In fact, there are even more enrolments than there are students. This is because a student can study in more than one course in one calendar year, reaching a total 956,773 enrollments in December. Some 43% of these students are from China and India, with the rest coming from other parts of the globe such as Colombia, Brazil, and Thailand.
Why study in Australia?“Students choose Australia because degrees are recognized by other schools and employers all over the world, and graduates from Australian schools are sought after due to the high standards of education associated with the country,” International Student writes.
All good points, but one other big draw for international students studying Down Under is the fact that the Australian government permits them to work while they study. In addition to that, Australia has the best minimum wage in the world, equivalent to US$12.95. Still, obtaining a student visa is a fairly complex process. The first step is determining the exact visa you require; depending on the type of study you choose to undertake, there are a number of different visas for which you can apply.
Who Can Get a Student Visa?While there are a large selection of visas to choose from, student visas generally have some eligibility requirements in common. With most Australian student visas you must:
- have confirmation of enrolment in a registered full time course at an Australian Education Institution.
- provide financial evidence that you would be able to support yourself while living and studying in Australia.
- And obtain overseas student health insurance cover for the duration of your stay in Australia.
