My Wife was in a unique position where we extended her student visa a few times as some of the units weren't offered in certain semesters. She ended up only doing one unit a semester for a while instead of the four which is required for student visa. We were lucky with this as this gave us time to save for the remaining units.

Scotty, for my understanding, if you under student visa, you have to study full time, which means 4 subjects per semester, how come she can study one subject per semester?

As i mentioned she has almost finished her Degree and there were not enough units left in her Degree to make up the required study load for full time study. At the time from memory she only had four units left which would have made the required full time study load however all the units were not offered in the same semester. The university allowed this as did the immigration department when we extended her student visa. Her student visa is now expired and her bridging visa has been in effect for several months which obviously includes full study rights.
