Studend Visa / WHV

Hello,

I currently have a student visa because I did an exchange with the University of Melbourne and my home university in France for one semester. The problem is that , in order to valid my diploma I have to do an internship that I found in Melbourne but I need to have the Working Holiday Visa in order to work more than 20 hours per week. I would like to know if I have to leave the country to apply for this visa or if I can apply for this here because I have already lived in Melbourne for 5 months now. I think It would be unfair that I have to leave the country just to apply for a visa.

Thanks

Lucie
