Education Advisors

International students are important to Australia’s future. These students make a significant contribution to the Australian economy. They pay fees to Australian education institutions and spend money on accommodation and other living costs. They also add to our tourism sector when they travel within Australia, as do their families.

All of these activities generate more jobs for Australians. While there are differences of opinion over the exact size of the economic benefit, no-one disputes that it is substantial. Many argue that after coal and iron ore, international education is Australia’s third biggest export industry.

In the past ten years there has been significant growth in the number of students coming to Australia. The challenge faced by the student visa program is how to manage this demand for student places successfully both for Australia and the students concerned.

The larger challenge for providers and the community involves effectively responding to the pressures placed on infrastructure, such as available accommodation, by these increased numbers.

In the past the majority of international students seeking permanent residence have applied under the skilled migration program. This program exists to benefit Australia by meeting Australia’s labour market needs. Where students meet the requirements for skilled migration, they are eligible to apply for skilled migration.

The proportion of the skilled migration program consisting of former students has been relatively constant over recent years. For example, over the past five years’ former students have made up between six and nine per cent of the family stream and between 14 and 22 per cent of the skill stream.

Many international students want to work in Australia for a period after completing their courses. Indeed, in some cases it may be critical to work for a set period in order to gain professional accreditation.

Work related to the area of study gives students a valuable start in the employment stakes, whether their intention is to continue to work in Australia, work in their home country, work internationally, or a combination of all three. A period of employment in Australia also increases the chances of an international student finding an employer to eventually sponsor them to obtain permanent residence status in Australia.

Post education employment in Australia, with its higher wages than the home countries of most international students, assists the students to recoup some of the costs of their education. It is an opportunity to repay loans, help other family members who wish to study, or simply to get a return on their substantial investment of studying in Australia.

The ability to work in Australia after completing a course is very attractive for a prospective international student. Clearly it would be good for them and could be a good marketing tool.

Visas

If you want to take advantage of our quality education and training system, you may apply for a student visa.

Visas are granted by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). DIAC will only grant you a student visa if your course is registered, or is part of a registered course, on a full time basis. A registered course is one offered by an Australian education provider registered with the Australian Government to offer courses to overseas students. Visit the Commonwealth Register of Courses and Institutions for Overseas Students (CRICOS) website for more information.

Only courses under three months’ duration can be undertaken on a visitor visa or working holiday visa. If you intend to study for more than three months, you must apply for a student visa.

Advantages to studying on a student visa include:

  • you will have access to Australia’s subsidised student health cover;
  • you will be allowed to study for longer than three months; and
  • you can apply for permission to work part time.

You can apply for your student visa as soon as you receive a letter of offer or electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) for your full time course of study.

Our local Australian office can also give you information on applying and what documents you will need to attach to your application.

  • how to make your application; and
  • what your document requirements will be.
