Student visas are only available to students who wish to undertake a registered course on a full-time basis. Visas are not available to part-time students or for studies by correspondence. For details of full-time, registered courses refer to the Department of Education, Science and Training website

Student visa applicants are required to show evidence of a money deposit with a financial institution. Only scheduled banks operating under the Banking Companies Act 1967 are taken to meet the definition of "financial institution". Evidence of money deposits held with institutions other than those listed will not be accepted.
The Australian High Commission does not endorse the services of any particular student agent or education provider. Applications received from agents are processed in the same way as applications received directly from visa applicants.
Paying Fees to Education Providers
Student visa applicants are advised to lodge a Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) at the time the application is lodged.
Acceptance by an Australian educational institution does not in any way guarantee that a visa will be granted. Student visa applicants must meet legislative requirements for the grant of a visa.
Arrangements for payment of tuition fees are a private matter between the student and the educational institution. The Australian government is not involved in any way and accepts no liability. If an application for a student visa is rejected, obtaining a refund from the institution is the student's responsibility.
