Types of student visas

There are also many different types of student visas you can get. And it is important that you get the right one in order to have the right to study in another country. Below is a list of most of them:

Student visa (subclass 500)

This one is for those of you who are coming into Australia solely for study. There are also some requirements which must be met before the visa is granted. These include language, financial support, and general entrant requirements.

Student Guardian visa (subclass 590)

This type of visa is for those who are coming to provide care to a student studying in Australia who is under 18.

Training visa (subclass 407)

Next is the training visa. This visa will allow you to take part in workplace based training.

Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485)

Finally, there is the temporary graduate visa. This one is for those of you who have finished studies and would like to work temporarily in Australia.
