The Student visa (subclass 500) is a temporary visa that allows international students to undertake full-time study in registered courses at Australian educational institutions.

Key features of the subclass 500 student visa include:

  1. Eligibility: To be eligible for the subclass 500 visa, applicants must have been accepted into a registered course of study at an Australian educational institution. They must also meet health and character requirements.

  2. Course of Study: The subclass 500 visa allows students to undertake a full-time course of study at a registered Australian educational institution. This includes primary and secondary school, vocational education and training (VET) courses, higher education courses, and English language courses.

  3. Duration of Stay: The duration of stay permitted on the subclass 500 visa depends on the length of the course of study. Generally, visas are granted for the duration of the course, with an additional period for holiday travel at the end of the course.
