The student visa (subclass 500) offers international students the opportunity to travel and live in Australia while pursuing their education. Australia’s renowned institutions offer a diverse range of courses to choose from. Students with a student visa are allowed to work for up to 48 hours per fortnight during the courses and full-time during course breaks.
Another attraction of the subclass 500 visa is the option for students to change their course to one that leads to a path to permanent residence (PR). Our international student agents, along with immigration experts, work closely with institutions to help students enroll, obtain a letter of offer, and prepare for their study goals. Certain requirements must be met to obtain a student visa.
Maintaining the Visa Condition is Crucial for students
A student visa allows you to live, work, and study in Australia for a maximum of five years, depending on your course. You are generally allowed to work a maximum of 48 hours every two weeks on this visa and have unlimited study breaks. The Australian government has temporarily allowed students to work up to 48 hours every two weeks during semesters in all sectors. Students can also start work upon arrival in Australia without waiting for their course to begin. For more information, visit the Department of Home Affairs website.
