In most cases, you need a student visa to study in Australia. You must first accept your offer to study with Swinburne and pay your university deposit before applying for a visa.
Conditions of your visa
The Department of Home Affairs is responsible for issuing visas into Australia. Student visas can only be granted for courses registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
Your student visa will be issued for the course(s) listed on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from Swinburne. It will be subject to a range of conditions. If you do not meet those conditions, your visa may be cancelled.
If you change or extend your course(s) at Swinburne, you may need to change your visa or visa details. Restrictions apply to changes and extensions. Please refer to the Department of Home Affairs for more information.
