Applying for your visa
In most cases, you will need a student visa to study in Australia.
Visas are not automatic and all criteria must be met. You must not apply for a student visa before you have accepted your offer to study at Swinburne.
Student visas can only be granted for study in courses that are registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
For detailed information about student visas for Australia, contact the Department of Home Affairs.
