Student Visa Information

  • Information on applying for and obtaining a student visa is available on the UDiv website.
  • Student Visa Holders must maintain full-time enrolment in their course and must also satisfy course progress requirements (see the UDiv Course Progress Policy).
  • If a student fails to satisfy course progress requirements, UDiv must report this to the Department of Education. This reporting is mandatory and often impacts on the student’s visa.
  • Students must also inform CTC and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection of any changes to their address and contact details.
  • Students are strongly advised to view the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s website
    to ensure current visa regulations are met. 
Under the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000, re-enrolling students must pay their fees at least two weeks before the start of each semester. Failure to pay fees prior to the commencement of classes may lead to visa cancellations. 
 
In cases of withdrawal, the UDiv policy on full or partial refund of fees in relation to census date(s) is available on the UDiv website.
