Student Visa

Just wondering has anyone used the student visa route to go to help out with grandchildren for a couple of years. I know that there are fees and can only work 20 hours a week but would I have to show a certain amount of money is available? I have seen a couple of college courses I would be interested in taking. Am 51 so other visas not an option.

Considering your age, you might have an issue satisfying the department that you are a 'genuine' student.

Most student can work 40 hours a fortnight (no longer 20 hours a week) when their courses are in session and unlimited hours when they are not. Some students have unlimited work rights.
