Student Visa / Partner Visa Help!!

Hello everyone,

My student visa currently finishes in March 2020.
I have applied for the partner visa last year and waiting on that, I know i go on a bridging visa once my student visa ends.

However, my course finishes in September, and I've been told I need to fill the gap between September 2019 - March 2020 with some form of studying as its apparently a requirement.

However, my partner and friends seem to believe that as I've already applied for another visa, I don't need to study during this gap, I just wait until March when my bridging visa becomes active.

Is this true? If so, or if not, can someone provide a reliable link to evidence that i can look at?

I'm confused, I don't want to break any laws.

Hope that makes sense and someone can help.

Have you looked at this page: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...length-of-stay


it says:
Length of course: 10 months or longer, finishing from January until October. We will usually grant a visa stay period of 2 months longer than the course.
But yours is 6 months after course ends.. so.. could it be this"

The length of stay for Postgraduate Research students is generally 6 months longer than the usual relevant period set out in the table above. This additional time allows these students to remain in Australia during the interactive marking of their thesis.

If so, there appears no requirement to study after the required study period ends, for the period given on the visa.

As long as your student visa remains in effect, you must abide by the conditions that apply to that student visa.

Don't take advice from partners or friends. Talk to your course provider or a registered migration agent. They should be able to advise you properly.
