From 1 July 2016, a simplified international student visa framework.

From 1 July 2016, there will be only 2 Student Visa subclasses: Subclass 500 (Student) and Subclass 590 (Student Guardian).

The new student visa framework will streamline application and processing requirements for student visa applicants, with common criteria and genuineness of application for entry and stay as a student, simplify range of requirements including enrolment, financial and other requirements relating to visas previously held if the application is made in Australia etc.

Specifically, the Department will introduce new requirements to strengthen the integrity of Student visa programme by providing a larger range of factors for decision makers to assess genuineness and the need for individuals to provide evidence of financial and English proficiency
We will monitor this situation and will provide updates as soon as these are available.
