    VISA & Work Study


    An international student must obtain a Student Visa of Australia to study and work in Australia. Students can apply for the Student Visa (subclass 500) after receiving a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from UQ. Visa applications can be submitted online through the Department of Home Affairs. There are different types of visa such as:

    • Student Visa: The student visa is a temporary visa that allows students to come to Australia for a specified period to study at an Australian educational institution. Generally, if students are studying for more than 3 months, they will need a Student Visa. 
    • Visitor Visa: If students are studying for 3 months or less, there are Visitor Visa options. Students may need to apply for a Visitor (Tourist) Visa then they may be able to get a Working Holiday Visa which allows studying for 4 months.
    • Working Holiday Visa: It gives young people between the ages of 18 and 30 (and in some cases between the ages of 18 and 35) the opportunity to enjoy working holidays for up to 36 months.
    • Temporary Graduate Visa: The Temporary Graduate Visa allows graduates to work in Australia temporarily after completing the student’s studies.
    • Relative’s Visitor Visa: If a student's relatives wish to attend the graduation ceremony and require a letter to assist with their Visitor Visa application, they can order an official Graduation letter.
    • Applying For permanent Residency: International students who wish to remain in Australia permanently need to apply for Permanent Residency (PR). 
    • If students are under 18 years of age, they must have approved accommodation and welfare arrangements in place before a visa can be issued.
    • To apply for Student Visa, students will need the following documentation:
      • A copy of the offer letter
      • Valid Passport
      • Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
      • A copy of electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)

    Australia is a great place to work as an international student. Students may choose to work while studying

    • Student Visa allows international students to work part-time while pursuing their full-time degree courses.
    • The student visa allows students to work up to 40 hours per fortnight (two-week period) during university semesters.
    • Student visa holders can work full-time hours during vacations.
    • Casual or part-time work is a great way to provide students with an income while they are studying. 
    • The wage depends on the type of work and the age of the students.
