Tourist 676-Student Visa

Hey Everyone

Just wondering if it is possible to apply for a Tourist Long Stay Visa, most likely the 676 subclass one...and then apply for a student visa onshore?
Also have noticed a few people saying they have been given the No Further Stay Condition on their visa. What is the go with this and is it possible to not get it?

Thanks guys

Hi Abbi -

No Further Stay means you cannot apply for another visa while onshore with that visa, unless you are able to get a waiver (major change since last visa issued that was out of your control). However, if you're from the UK many people are granted visitor visas without condition 8503.

The ability to apply for a student visa onshore coming from a visitor visa is dependent on what country your citizenship is and other circumstances.

Hope this helps -
