4. Attend Orientation, Enrolment and commence study
Congratulations, you are nearly ready to start your studies with USQ. Your first day will begin on orientation and enrolment day. It is recommended all students attend orientation and enrolment.
5. Apply for your student visa
To study in Australia as an international student, you will need a visa issued by the Australian Government.
Most international students will require a student visa. Some international students will have a temporary visa other than a student visa.
Information about how to apply for a student visa can be found on the Department of Home Affairs. It is recommended that you apply six weeks prior to the program commencement date to arrive in Australia before orientation week.
Simplified student visa framework (SSVF)
The Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF) has been designed by the Department of Home Affairs to make sure the process of applying for a student visa simpler to navigate for genuine students. A single evidence level framework will apply to all international students. International students apply for a single Student visa (subclass 500), regardless of their chosen course of study. The combined evidence level outcomes of the student’s education provider and country of citizenship guide whether the student needs to provide evidence of financial and English language capacity with their student visa application.
