As an international student on a student visa, you must study with an institution and in a course that is registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). CRICOS registration guarantees that the course and the institution at which you study meet the high standards expected by international students.

So no matter the type of course you want to study, how long you want to study or where you want to study, you can be assured that in Australia you will have a high quality and rewarding study experience.

Universities have been divided into three categories depending upon less misuse of student visa by these students

  • Level 1
  • Level 2
  • Level 3

To protect their levels or to move up the levels, the onus of scrutiny of the applicants lies mostly on the universities.

After receiving your application, the universities will apply the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) norms to you and go through your profile, your SOP and your academics and only when they are convinced they will give you Confirmation of Enrollment- COE (acceptance). The COE means that you are halfway through to get your student visa. The smoothness of this process depends on the level of the university, the level of the applicant’s nationality and the level of your agent.

According to new rules, the universities have changed their entry requirements and they are looking for profiles with Good percentages in highest qualification (60% and above).

IELTS score of 6.5 overall with no band less than 6 for most of the courses depending on the universities and ELICOS will be given only if it is only 0.5 less than the requirement.

Backlogs should not be more than 20 in their highest qualification.

Documents needed for visa purpose:

Once you login to Immigration website, you need to select the subclass, your education provider from the list available at: Education providers and country of origin.

By selecting all these, it will display the requirements for the visa purpose.

The Universities are divided into Pool 1 & Pool 2. Pool 1 Universities are at low risk, and rest of the universities are considered as Pool 2 universities.

If the university is in POOL 1 list and the student is from Low risk country, then it is possible to lodge the student visa application without much evidence of English and financial sources.

If you are applying visa with offer from other than POOL 1 universities, then you need to show below funds:

  • 1 year of tuition fee.
  • 1 year of living expenses (AUD 19,830 for student, AUD 6,940 for spouse, AUD 2,970 for each child)
  • Valid health insurance for the entire duration of the course.

Some important points to be noted for Student Visa:

  1. Any visa refusals of any country in respect of the applicant or his/her family members should be declared whether the family members are accompanying the applicant or not.
  2. The Immigration Department will not accept any kind of Loan, Fixed Deposits derived from the Gold.
  3. If the student has chosen a stream which is not related to his studies, the student has to furnish strong reasons to the immigration Department.
  4. The student has to provide his financial capacity in the form of Fixed Deposits, Savings, Educational loan from recognized financial institution and should prove to immigration department that he has genuine access to those funds as and when required.
  5. The student has to provide evidence of English proficiency (IELTS/PTE/TOEFL) as required by the Australian University / Colleges. If exempted from English proficiency, the student should provide evidence of exemption got from the University / College.
  6. The Agents should ensure that ‘Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) statements provide all the required and detailed information pertaining to the student, such as academic, employment, family, and financial details and should give valid reasons to study in Australia by not choosing to study in home country. The student should also demonstrate the benefits of the study outcome of the proposed course to his career plan by providing all the supporting documents for each & every statement given in the GTE along with the application.
  7. The student should explain any gaps in his study or employment history and provide proper proofs for the gaps for studies or work/job.
  8. The student should explain clearly his/her future career plan on completion of the chosen course in Australia and how the course will benefit in his/her home country. The statement must reflect the student’s circumstances like his/her educational path, employment history, financial status of the family and strong bond with home country.
  9. The normal generic statements will not be weighed heavily in the GTE assessment by the immigration department, so the GTE statement should be unique reflecting student’s present circumstances and future career plan after finishing studies in Australia.

Failure to provide any of those documents may lead to a visa refusal.

Permission to work:

One of the advantages of being an international student in Australia is that you can receive permission to work part time (up to 40 hours per fortnight while you study). Students who have studied for a minimum of 2 years will be permitted to work for 2 years (Post Study Work Visa) if they complete Bachelors or Masters Degree in Australia. Students who study Master by Research can get work permit for 3 years, and PhD students are eligible to get a work permit for 4 years and unlimited work rights during their studies.

Types of work for International Students:

International students often find work in retail, hospitality and administration. Working students are covered by Australian workplace law and practice. You may be paid more for working on Sundays and public holidays. If you decide to take on the challenge of part-time work, start with a few hours until you are able to find a balance with your studies.

Employment:

One of the great advantage of gaining an Australian qualification is that, it makes you eligible to work in Australia and gain licensing to work locally. It gives you an edge over overseas qualified persons.

Employers in Australia and around the world hold Australian graduates in high esteem. Thousands of graduates are recruited every year in all career fields like traditional fields, such as business, finance, law and medicine, to emerging industries, such as environmental sustainability, digital media, bio-technology, nanotechnology and e-commerce. Australian qualification will provide you with an excellent platform to develop your career.

Vocational Placements:

As part of your course of study, you may be required to undertake work-based training or a vocational work placement to gain your qualification. As the requirements for work-based training or work placements vary significantly depending on the course you choose, you will need to check with your education provider about any specific requirement

Employment Assistance:

Many Australian universities and higher education institutions offer returning home seminars for international students. These seminars will prepare you to re-enter your home country for finding a job. The Australian Government has also been very active in developing Memorandum of Understanding and qualifications recognition between Australia and other countries.

Genuine Temporary Entrant requirement for Students:

  • The student’s intention to comply with any condition subject to which the visa is granted.
  • The student’s relationship and other personal factors in the home country and many more…

Statement Of Purpose (SOP):

  • It should express the reasons for undertaking the particular course?
  • Why you have chosen Australia over other countries?
  • Why you have chosen that particular university?

  • What is your complete educational background?

Who can be the Sponsor?

  • A close Relative (may  provide 60-70% of the required funds)
  • 3rd party sponsor (only 30% of the required funds)

The sources of funds (annual income) can be in the form of:

Problems or Mistakes in writing SOP:

  1. High Professionals Help: Students take high professionals help in writing their SOP. We should have a good command over English but not very high-end or over-board English & do not need great writing skills to write SOP. University admissions team gauge the student’s level of English with their IELTS/TOEFL/PTE exam and will clearly know if the students have taken the professionals help in writing the SOP. Good simple English with clear & concise meaning is required to write SOP.
  2. Copy SOP: Most students copy the contents of other student’s SOPs or copy from the internet. This should never be done because SOP should be extremely personalized & unique.
  3. Grammatical mistakes: Students tend to make lot of grammar & spelling mistakes in their SOP, because of their bad English which results in Admissions Team declining the application. So they should be extra careful with the grammar & spellings.
  4. Too Lengthy: Students think that the SOP is lengthy, they have more chances of getting an Admission. This is not correct. They should always keep in mind that SOP is not an essay or an exam to write very lengthy. SOP should be simple, clean, straight forward & honest.
  5. Unnecessary Issues: Students write all unnecessary things in the SOP which puts off the Admission Team. They should mention only important & relevant issues of their life which impresses the Admissions Team. They should clearly elaborate the main purpose to study in that country & in particular that university & course. They must give proper & correct reasons for choosing that university & course and also emphasize academic & future career goals after completion of the course. They should prove to them that they are good and fit for their university & will be an asset to the university.
  6. Random Events: In the SOP, the students mention the events in their life in random order. This is totally wrong. The events mentioned must always be in order like building blocks in their own life’s journey from schooling through till the present part of life.
  7. Flattery: The students in the SOP always flatter the university & program with the words like your university is the top/best/wonderful/fabulous/fantastic etc., etc., This unnecessary flattery will do more harm than good to their chances of approving their application because the university clearly knows its own status very well so it prefers honest & straight forward reviews of it.
  8. Only Positives: The students always mention only the positive issues about them & highs in their life in the SOP, which is not right. They should always mention their failures, negatives, weaknesses & lows in their life’s journey & how they overcame all those with their inner strengths, abilities & knowledge.
  9. Only Academics: The students boast about their academics & achievements in the SOP. This should not be done. They should not boast about anything in the SOP but only mention it. Not only academics, they should also give details about the extracurricular activities they have participated and mention about their talents & traits they have.
  10. Perfect SOP: Students try to write perfect SOP thinking that a top-level SOP will guarantee an admission into the university which is totally a wrong notion. A good simple, clean, specific, truthful, straight forward & honest SOP will impress the Admissions Team.

Given the quality of life and five of its major cities – Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide  making it to the most liveable places in the world*, Australia attracts many students from all over the world for pursuing their higher education. Its multicultural environment is friendly and safe for the students coming from outside the country. Having said that, it is important to take some precautions to remain on the safer side.

Your university security service can help

Almost all campuses in Australia have a special body to ensure the safety of their international students. So, as the first step, check if your school offers one and keep the security officer’s number saved in your phone.

Various universities and schools also offer services like shuttles and security escorts to drop you to your accommodation or stations after hours. Some go a step further and have their own mobile apps with a direct line for students to get in touch with the security.

If, at any point of time, you feel unsafe in and around your campus or accommodation, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your college authorities.

What to do in case of an emergency?

If you happen to face any emergency, call the toll free number 000. This is a common number that can be used for fire, police or ambulance.

Some other emergency contact numbers you should have saved are:

  • SES assistance in floods and storms: 132 500
  • Police attendance: 131 444 (all states except Victoria)
  • International incident emergency helpline: 1300 555 135 (within Australia)
  • Outside Australia– external site: +61 2 6261 3305

Stay alert when outdoors

  • You must always be aware and vigilant about your surroundings. Trust your instincts and move away from areas where you feel uncomfortable and are not familiar with
  • Avoid travelling alone especially during the night. Pre-book a taxi or have a friend drop you
  • Do not carry your passport when you go out exploring. If you do not have a permanent place to live, contact your university’s international support team to get you campus storage facilities
  • Carry sufficient emergency cash. Prefer using cards and online banking for transactions

Navigate safe through the city

The public transportation system in Australia is particularly well-developed and convenient to use, especially in the urban and metro areas. But it’s always better to be alert:

  • Never board an isolated bus or train or metro
  • Familiarise yourself with transport time tables especially if you travel at night. Stick to well-lit routes
  • Board a carriage closest to the driver or the guard to avoid untoward incidents
  • If you are in a carriage with only one other person and it makes you uncomfortable, move on to the next compartment
  • Australian laws differ from India. So, learn them beforehand to avoid breaking them unintentionally

Keep your money and documents safe

As an international student, you must keep all your documents safe with you at all times. Your passport, identification, visa papers, and immigration forms should always be kept in safe place. If you prefer to use cash, keep it in various places instead of a single location. It is always a better option to use a card rather than cash.

Do not carry your passport when you go out exploring. If you do not have a permanent place to live, contact your university’s international support team to get you campus storage facilities.

Have fun, but with care

Exploring new venues and enjoying your new surroundings can be exciting but before taking a trip to these areas, research and look up any information you can find on that place to see whether it is safe for you to go venturing. Inform your friends and family about your plans beforehand. You can also share your live location with someone you trust.

Always stay connected

Always keep your friends and family updated on your whereabouts at all times. Here’s how you can always remain connected:

  • Always keep your phone charged and on ringing when not in a classroom
  • Whether you’re going to another town or to the nearest shopping mall, keep someone informed
  • If you feel unsafe at any given time, share your live location with someone you trust

Your FOE counsellors will brief you about all the precautionary measures before you leave India during your pre-departure session so that you are well prepared for the new challenges ahead.
