If you are in Australia on a temporary visa you can apply to study at one of our campuses.
The rules that apply to you, though, are different from those for local students, or international students on a student visa. The way you enrol is different, too.
We will only enrol you if a place is available, and you will have to pay fees to study with us – unless you’re exempt. You'll also need to meet any entry requirements for the course you choose.
Most temporary visa holders will pay the fee for service charge that applies to your course, and your fees can be paid by instalments.
If you studied with us in 2014, and are continuing your study in 2015, you will be charged a pro-rata fee for the balance of your study depending on your visa and the fees you paid in 2014.
If you haven’t paid all the fees that are due, we will not give you your results or any awards you may have earned, and we will take action to recover any outstanding fees.
We will only enrol you in courses that you can complete before your visa expires.
If your visa has no expiry date you can still enrol – but we will accept no responsibility if you can’t finish a course because the Department of Immigration and Border Protection requires you to leave Australia.
You must be truthful about your residency status if you are on a temporary visa – because we will verify it with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. If you make a false claim about residency status, we may exclude you from our courses.
If your temporary visa changes, or the conditions of your visa change, while you’re studying with us, you must tell us. If that happens to you, tell the Temporary Visa Holders Officer at your college or Institute about the change.
