Can I extend my student visa in Australia?
3 Months ago
Dear students and parents,
If you are planning to study in Australia, it's important to know about the visa requirements and rules for international students. One of the most common questions we receive from our clients is: Can I extend my student visa in Australia? Here's what you need to know:
- Yes, it's possible to extend your student visa in Australia, but you need to meet certain conditions and requirements. You should apply for an extension at least 6 weeks before your current visa expires.
- To be eligible for a student visa extension, you need to continue studying with a valid enrolment in a registered course or program, maintain satisfactory academic progress, and have enough money to support yourself during your stay in Australia.
- Your student visa extension will depend on the length of your course and your academic progress. For instance, if you are studying a bachelor's degree, you may be granted an extension for up to 2-4 years depending on the campus of study. If you are pursuing a postgraduate degree, you may be eligible for an extension of up to 3-5 years depending on the campus of study.
- You can also apply for a new student visa if you want to study a different course or program in Australia after your current visa expires.
- Keep in mind that visa rules and regulations can change frequently, so it's important to check the latest updates on the Department of Home Affairs website or consult with a qualified education consultant.
