Increase your chances of getting your student visa application approved by enrolling in reputable educational institutions in Australia. For an education visa to be approved for an international student, they should be enrolled in courses from a CRICOS provider for the government to validate that they are indeed migrating to the country for study purposes. While enrolling in such institutions doesn’t guarantee the approval of an immigration student visa or onshore student visa, they certainly improve the chances since these education providers can vouch for the students to receive education and training upon arriving in the country.
The international students building and construction courses of Everthought College of Construction Pty Ltd, RTO 51681, CRICOS 02898C can serve as one of the student visa pathways for you if you’re looking for a career in construction in Australia. You can get qualifications for various nationally recognised certifications and licences, such as the QBCC licence, or get trade qualifications for your previous experiences and education outside Australia through an RPL certification. Everthought offers both on-campus and online construction courses to help you gain quality skills and knowledge you will need to demonstrate expertise that passes the Australian standards for construction work.
Many overseas students get into universities for their student visa Australia immigration application process while shouldering the costs of travel, accommodation, and other processing fees that they would have to pay to get an Australian visa – all to secure good-paying jobs in the country in the future. If you are among those looking to get their student visa application accepted, read on to find out how to go about the process and what Everthought can do for you.
What are the documents required for a student visa?
A visa application in Australia is a complex process, but as long as you strictly follow the process as detailed by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs on their immigration and citizenship website, it can be quick and easy. Here are the crucial documents and forms you have to submit during your visa application:
Evidence of English language skills
To prove that you possess adequate English skills to study in Australia, you will be required to present evidence showing that you obtained a passing test score in English language tests approved by the Department such as IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge English, and PTE Academic. To enrol on a course at Everthought, the language requirements are IELTS 5.5, TOEFL IBT 46, PTE 43, CAE 47, or equivalent level from an approved ELICOS College.
Evidence of enrolment in the study
One of the primary requisites for an Australian student visa approval is that you are enrolled in a full-time course registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). You must provide a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) for each course of study to process your visa application. Everthought is a building and construction training provider listed under CRICOS so your enrolment in our full-time courses will help validate your application. You must be at least eighteen years of age to enrol.
Evidence of identity and financial status
You will be asked to present original or certified copies of documents showing your personal information to validate your real identity during the visa application process. Because you will also have to shoulder the expenses for your travel, accommodation, and studies – unless you fall under the exempt subclass – you may also be asked to provide bank statements or other proof of your financial capacity. An Australian student visa allows you to bring family members with you, via student dependent visa or family immigration visas, so take into consideration the possible additional expenses as well.
How to apply for a student visa?
Whether you are applying from outside or inside the country, be sure to allow enough time for the visa processing time, which may vary depending on certain factors. Next, you will have to collate the requirements including the above-mentioned documents that show proof of your identity, financial status, enrolment under a registered education provider, and English language proficiency – use the online Document Checklist Tool to avoid missing any important requisites. Then, send your application online via the Australian Government Home Affairs Website; you can also check the status of your application here. You will then receive a final decision in writing stating whether or not your application has been approved.
