Tourist Visa to Student Visa


I'm from Canada and I am moving to Newcastle in January to attend the University of Newcastle for my MBA

I wanted to know...can I apply for a Tourist Visa then once I'm signed up for school in Newcastle, can I change it to a Student Visa? Or simply apply for the Student Visa once I'm there.

Reason why I want to do this is because I'm not done my undergrad degree so I won't get final transcripts until possibly late December or early January, so I can't accept my offer at UoN until I get final transcripts and pay the deposit. So, to avoid delaying my move to Australia, I want to be able to enter the country and get everything done at school, accept offer, pay deposit, and I'll be there early enough (January 10th possible) and it gives me time to find a place to live before classes start January 30.

Any thoughts or past experience?
