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. Your IEA-A representative can help you.
Student visa information on this website is an outline only and subject to change. For more detailed, accurate and up-to-date information on student visas and visa requirements please visit the Department of Immigration and Citizenship website or speak to your My Study in Australia Student Counsellor.
Each student visa application is assessed according to an assessment level. The assessment level is determined by the passport held and visa subclass applied for.
The assessment levels relate generally to how likely students are to comply with their visa conditions, based on previous students’ behaviour. Assessment level 1 represents the lowest assessment level and assessment level 5 the highest.
The higher the assessment level, the more evidence you will need to provide to demonstrate your financial capacity, understanding of the English language and other relevant matters.
Important: if you have an assessment level 2, 3, 4 or 5, then you must make your first student visa application while you are outside Australia.
Your My Study in Australia Student Counsellor will consider all relevant information from you before making required Student by considering different alternatives for your specific conditions such as
- visa sub-classes for each education sector
You should apply under the visa sub-class for your principal course of study.
- assessment levels
Each education sector in each country is ranked according to five assessment levels.
- evidentiary standards
These visa requirements include English language proficiency and are increasingly stringent from assessment level 1 through to assessment level 5.
- electronic confirmation of enrolment (eCoE)
The only accepted evidence of enrolment for processing student visa applications.
A preliminary assessment will determine your eligibility for a student visa and is necessary if your country is at Assessment Level 3, 4 or 5.

Depending on your country of nationality and your principal course of study you may have to undergo a preliminary assessment before an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) is issued by your Australian education provider.
My Study in Australia Student Counsellor will provide an ‘Offer of a place in a course’ letter from your education provider to the visa processing office.
When your application is received, the visa processing office will undertake a preliminary assessment of your ability to meet the student visa requirements applicable to you.
If the assessment is favourable, the office will issue you a letter to give to your education provider authorising them to issue you with an eCoE certificate.
When you study in Australia, an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) is issued by your Australian education provider and is the only accepted evidence of enrolment for processing student visa applications.
My Study in Australia Student Counsellor will advise you of its requirements but generally it will require payment of at least one semester or one year of course fees before issuing an eCoE. A copy of your eCoE must be submitted to your local DIAC office before a student visa can be issued.
You will be also advised to pay the tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover (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.
When you study in Australia, generally you will be issued with a multiple entry visa for the duration of your study course so you can travel in and out of Australia.
Members of your immediate family (spouse and unmarried dependent children under 18 years of age) can accompany you to Australia and will be considered in the same visa class as yourself.
If you wish to extend your stay in Australia for further study you will need to lodge an application for a further visa.
The student visa has seven separate sub-classes for each education sector. You should apply under the visa sub-class for your principal course of study. Your IEA-A representative can provide further education.
