Student visas lodged outside Australia will re-commence being granted so that when borders re-open, students will already have visas and be able to make arrangements to travel. International students will also be able to lodge a further student visa application for free if they could not complete their original studies due to Covid-19.
Other students studying online outside of Australia will also be able to use that study to count towards the Australian study requirement and students unable to return to Australia can apply for a post-study work visa in their location.
Additional time will also be given to applicants to provide English language results if Covid-19 has disrupted access to that service. Complete a free assessment HERE for further information.
