Online TAFE course Tourist Visa

Hi, guys!
Im new here and I'd like to take a TAFE course of Diploma of Legal Services online. I currently hold a subclass 600 visa, which means a tourist visa (withouth NFS condition).

The course is 100% online, however on my visa Im only allowed to study for a period of 3 months (the course is selfpaced and I want to finish it asaaaaap).

With a situation like mine... do I need a student visa or can I just enrol with my tourist visa??

TAFe brisbane said I will likely not be allowed to continue studying after the 3 months expire.

Thanks guys!

3 months is the maximum amount of time you can study for. So can you complete the diploma in 3 months? I would think it's unlikely given it's a diploma.

They don't hand out student visas for online courses - you need to attend a university or school.

The strange thing about it is that, according to them, I don`t even need to go there at all, I dont need to go there to take exams whatsoever, therefore I reckon I should be able to enrol without even ever being in Australia.

You cant take immigration advise from a education provider.

The visa clearly states that you cannot study for more than 3 months on a 600 visa. Otherwise everyone would just do online bachelor degrees and by pass the students visa all together!

Seek learning, Open Colleges and Open Training. All of these online schools told me the student visa isn't a requirement, specially because I can study the course anywhere in the world.

Plus, online courses do not make you eligible for a student visa, therefore it is impossible for me to take an online course with a student visa, unless I take 2 courses (one on-campus and one online) at the same time.

I just wanted to clarify this misunderstanding, because the guy from TAFE Queensland told me I should get in touch with my "international department". On immi.gov.au, I got to know I wouldnt be eligible for a 572 visa (TAFE COURSES) because one of its requirements is exactly taking an on-campus course.
