Temporary Visa Holder

If you are in Australia on a temporary visa you can apply to study at one of our campuses.

The rules that apply to you, though, are different from those for local students, or international students on a student visa. The way you enrol is different too.

We will only enrol you if a place is available, and you will have to pay fees to study with us. You'll also need to meet any entry requirements for the course you choose. Entry requirements are listed in the course information.
