Applying for your student VISA before you leave your home country, University of Newcastle, Australian

Visa and immigration

Girl on campus

Australia's Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) requires that international students studying here hold a valid student visa.

Students on these visas must comply with their conditions. If you breach any of these we are required under the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act to notify the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIICCSRTE) and DIBP, which could result in cancellation of your visa.

To assist you in obtaining your visa we participate in streamlined student visa processing which means faster visa assessment for international students who hold a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

Please note we cannot make representations to DIBP with respect to visas of international students.
