ELICOS Across Borders

The Australian Government’s Student Visa Program has been effective in enabling the significant benefits of the international education sector to the nation. The visa program is an integral part of the sector which is one of Australia’s largest export industries and generates substantial benefits.

 International student visa holders are important to Australia’s future as they make a significant contribution to the Australian economy, facilitate the development of trade and commercial links and promote goodwill and understanding of Australia. The enduring links formed between Australia and students also support bilateral ties with key partner countries. The Department of Home Affairs strives to balance the facilitation of the entry of genuine international students whilst maintaining the integrity of Australia’s visa arrangements.

The Department of Home Affairs, as part of a panel session with Austrade and the Department of Education and Training, will discuss the simplified student visa framework (SSVF), student visa requirements including eligibility for a student visa, financial capacity requirements, English language requirements and the genuine temporary entrant requirement.Continue reading

Poor concentration is a modern condition. According to research by Microsoft, our average attention span is now just eight seconds – one second shorter than a goldfish!
