  • Cost of application of the Visa is from AUD 575
  • After the course commencement, Student Visa holders are permitted to work for a maximum of 40 hours per fortnight when the course is in session and unlimited hours when the course is out of session
  • You can apply to take two or more courses on your Australian Student visa where one course clearly leads to the next, which is called course packaging; the last course you take as part of the course package is your main course of study, which is used to work out what financial and English language skills evidence is needed
