Student Visa Subclass 500
Your access to quality education in Australia
A student visa enables international students to participate in their chosen course of study in Australia. You can apply online (if you already hold an eligible visa), in or outside Australia.
This is a temporary visa. You are able to study in Australia for up to 5 years. Your stay depends on the type of course and length of study.
Primary school children enrolled in years 1-4 will generally be granted a student visa for a maximum period of 3 years.
You may be able to apply for a new visa for continued study. Each visa is subject to certain requirements and conditions.
Temporary measures introduced by the Australian Government for increased flexibility for student visa holders (as at May 2021) include:
- Prioritising grant of student visa applications lodged outside Australia.
- International students can lodge a further student visa application free of charge if unable to complete their studies on their original visa due to COVID-19.
- International students studying online outside Australia due to COVID-19 can include that study towards the Australian study requirement for a post-study work visa.
- Student visa applicants have extra time to provide English language results, biometrics or health checks if COVID-19 has affected access to these services.
