Apply for VISA 6 months earlier

hi dear all,

I have recently got my offer from my chosen university. However, the academic year starts in September 2017.
I want to apply for student visa and settle in Melbourne earlier.
What are my chances to get a visa if I apply for Australian Embassy?
I am afraid that If I apply well ahead I may not get a visa but I want to go to Australia and gain some experience.

when is the best time to apply?

Hi,

Congratulations on the offer! That is a great achievement.

You can apply for the visa at any time, however, they are unlikely to allow you to enter Australia until 1-2 months before your course commences.

Therefore, if you wanted to come to Australia earlier, you may want to consider bringing your starting date forward if that is an option.

I strongly advise you to apply for the student visa ASAP. Since the new implementation post July 2016, most students visa applications were delayed and/or postponed. Also, from what I see in this forum, even the low risk countries' applicants (i.e. Japan, Canada, UK..etc) get their student visas in 12 weeks minimum. Soon is better.
