Obtaining a 573 visa to study in Australia

If you live overseas and are thinking about furthering your education in another country, why not consider Australia? This country was built on migrants if you are thinking about coming here, prepare yourself for an experience like no other.

The visa you will be looking to obtain is a temporary visa, subclass 573 under the umbrella of the higher education sector but if you have any questions, talk to an experienced migration agent.

The 573 visa allows you to study your course, work for up to forty hours per fortnight during term time and allows any dependant family members to accompany you.

This visa lets you stay in Australia for the duration of the course and allows multiple entries in and out of the country. However for the visa to remain valid you have to pass your courses and maintain class work and attendance.

By what yardstick attendance and work completion is measured, is up to the individual education institution.

To be eligible for this visa you must have been accepted to a full time course in a registered education facility which can be found on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

As well as this, you will be judged on your intent to remain in Australia on a temporary basis.This is assessed as a genuine temporary entrant through your immigration history, your circumstances in your home country and other factors that might reflect on your intentions.

You have to show that while in Australia you can afford to pay for your education, your accommodation and other things that allow you to work and live here comfortably.

Should you have family, such as a partner or children, you must show they have financial support, even if they aren't with you in Australia.

Medical insurance is another requirement and can be obtained with Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).

While you are completing your degree, you do have permission to work up to twenty hours a week during term time. However,during semester breaks you are allowed to participate in your job for as many hours as you wish.

To apply for this visa, ensure that all your paperwork is together so that an efficient assessment can be made. Providing relevant documents and getting a swift decision takes the stress out of waiting so you can focus on preparing yourself for your new adventure.
