If you have a current student visa, you will need to apply for a new student visa before your current visa expires. Your new visa must last the full duration of your study with us.
If you change your course or course duration, you must inform the Department of Home Affairs. To do this, you must obtain a new CoE from us.
Note: There are restrictions that mean the Department of Home Affairs may not allow a visa extension. Issuing a new CoE to cover an increase in your course duration is not automatic and can only be done in certain circumstances.
