If you wish to Study in Australia, you would need to apply for and get a Student
Visa. The visa guidelines for the Australian Student visa have changed and a
Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF) has been initiated from July 1, 2016,
onwards. As per the new visa guidelines implemented by the Department of Immigration
and Border Protection, the Australian Government, all students planning to study in
Australia need to apply for Visa under Subclass 500 with effect from July 1, 2016.
Applications prior to July 1, 2016, were accepted under different subclasses. Recent
changes have combined the erstwhile subclasses 571 - 576 under this subclass 500.
So, students that are planning to apply to any of the sectors need to apply for
Student Visa under Subclass 500 w.e.f. July 1, 2016.
Like in any visa, there are some basic requirements that a student must meet
to be eligible for a Student Visa for Australia. These are listed below:
Full-Time StudyStudents enrolled in a full-time study
course are only eligible to apply for a Student Visa under Subclass 500.
Part-time and distance learning courses do not qualify.

Student Visa requires the student to be able to prove that he/she is a
Genuine Temporary Entrant. Essentially, that means that you should be
able to convince that you only intend to travel to Australia for studies
and would return to your home country at the end of the course or after
a few years of experience

student visa for Australia, you need to provide proof that you are in
good health. You can do so by providing a certificate of good health.

provide at the time of filling the form. Also, Indian students also need
to provide a Chest X-Ray that proves that you do not suffer from
Tuberculosis since India is considered a high-risk country.
