But they will reconsider for scholarships by following their usual procedures and let us know if we are successful. I'm not sure how long this will take and also no idea whether we have to file visa application again as we might be issued with a new eCoE!

From what I could infer from DIBP website, it seems that we don't have to apply again.
If the new eCoE is issued before the decision is made on the current visa application, we can simply notify DIBP of the change using form 1022. And if the new eCoE is issued after the decision on this visa application then we need to submit form 424C to request an amendment.

I think if you just upload the new CoE, in your immi account that would work, just make the document type as 'Certificate of Enrollment'.

No big change except an email reply from DIBP saying the application is under active consideration. The second such reply for around ten emails from my side in the last three months. Extension expires today so I have requested a deferral.
@p1890 how about you?

It must have been 5 months for you right?

I guess this problem started last year and Go8 uni's are taking up this with Australian Government,

below is from a white paper,

Quote:
"The second recommendation might appear more abstract, but it is no lesser of an issue — that the federal government explicitly recognise the fundamental importance of Australia’s research efforts as a pillar of international engagement. Recently a large number of Go8 postgraduate research students were significantly affected by changes to Australia’s visa system which caused long delays in processing applications — without communication updates regarding their processing.

Australia has to “fight” in an increasingly competitive international marketplace for every research student who chooses to come here. Poorly managed visa changes are exceptionally damaging to Brand Australia. This is unfortunate at a time of great opportunity, when Australia should be poised to benefit from the political turmoil of our two major competitors, the US and Britain. Now is the time to seize this opportunity."

True indeed. The landscape for research students has changed very much in UK and USA. However, in terms of providing visa decisions, UK takes 3 weeks for 90% applications received whereas it is 3 months for 90% applications in Australia. They definitely need to optimise their evaluation frameworks in order to maintain the competitive edge.
