Student Visa Requirements:

To be granted a student visa you must satisfy the visa requirements and comply with a number of visa conditions for attendance and academic performance which come into effect after you have entered Australia. Here are some of the common visa requirements:

You are of good character
You are of sound health
You have acceptable health insurance through the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for yourself and members of your family unit accompanying you to Australia
You have no outstanding debts to the Commonwealth of Australia, or have made arrangements acceptable to the Minister to repay such a debt
You have Offer of admission letter or an electronic confirmation of enrolment (eCoE) certificate
You are financially able to cover air fares, tuition fees and other expenses associated with your education and stay in Australia

Pre-Visa Assessment:

A Pre-Visa Assessment (PVA) determines a student's eligibility for a student visa and is necessary if your country is at Assessment Level 3 or 4. This involves obtaining a letter of offer from your chosen institution and submitting your visa application with all supporting documentation to your local DIMIA office for assessment. If the assessment is favourable, you will be issued with a PVA approval letter to give to your education provider authorising them to issue you with an eCoE. You will be also advised to pay the tuition fees and OSHC premium, and undergo medical tests. The student visa will be granted when the Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) and all other requirements are satisfied.
