There is a non-refundable visa charge when you apply for your visa. For more information on visa fees and charges please visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.

Make sure you allow sufficient time for your student visa to be processed as it can take several months depending on the country you come from.

For more information on the current visa processing times and fees, please contact your nearest Australian Embassy, Consulate or High Commission. They will also be able to give you further information about how to apply for a student visa, and whether you will be required to undergo health checks or provide chest X-rays.
