Congratulations on studying in the Kangaroo land!

Everybody knows Australia is one of the best destinations throughout the world providing the best educational facility to international students. Students may get selected for studying just according to their preference and eligibility criteria. Moreover, a lot of Universities are situated in Australia, offering the best facilities to the local and foreign students. Also, there are almost all kinds of study programs one can study from Australian institutes- undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs.

Therefore, after meeting the eligibility criteria of the study programs, a student must meet other basic requirements for getting the permission to study in Australia. But, from other basic requirements, the one which is the most necessary is the Student Visa. The Visa provides the students the permission to study and work in Australia, till their selected study programs run. Below, we are producing the details regarding the  Australian study visa requirements and application processing time.

Necessary Documents

Following are the necessary documents without which a student is unable to get the opportunity to get study visa of Australia. Read these instructions carefully for proceeding further to get Australian study visa.

1.      The Confirmation of Enrollment

It is the most necessary part of the visa attainment process. Under it, the student requiring the Australian visa must show his official certificate of confirmation to full-time enrollment in a legal study program in Australia. Moreover, the international students applying under the subclass 576 AusAID, must show an official letter from the sponsoring agency. Consequently, this letter will show the confirmation of their support for the study program in Australia.

2.      English Language Proficiency 

English language proficiency is also necessary for the international students for getting the Student Visa from Australia. They must pass the English language proficiency testing courses such as IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, and CAE. Otherwise, the University won’t entertain the applications of the candidates.
