Student Visa changes from 1st July 2016

From July 1, there will only be one class of student visa available as part of the government’s simplified student visa framework.

The changes are designed to make the process of applying “simpler to navigate for genuine students, deliver a more targeted approach to immigration integrity and reduce red tape”.

The single visa will be subclass 500, regardless of field of study. The visas of students on subclass numbers 570 to 576 will remain valid and their visa conditions will not change.

    Hello, I am 42 years old from Portugal. Am I too old to study in Australia?

      Hi Vickie,
      Thanks for your enquiry. There is no age limit for the student visa in Australia. In fact, we have a few clients who we enrolled as mature students.
      For example, Caroline Coop, 45 years old from England. You can read her story here
      Please contact us and we can help you!

    Hi Northern Immigration Australia!

    From your experience with clients, how long does it take to apply for a student Visa and get a result?

      Thanks for your enquiry. The current processing times for a student visa are between 24 – 63 days. It depends on the type of course you would like to study. Please book a consultation to discuss your visa options in details!
