Red face Student Visas

HI

Just putting a question out to people about student visas...has anyone had any positive or negative experiences with getting student visas at the moment. It seems that the policies have changed.

If anyone has anything to share positive or negative it would be great.

You are kind of opening a giant can of worms there for the international student visa has been rorted somewhat in recent years by shonky education establishments being set up along with recruiters abroad promoting stuff like study for two years to be a cook and get PR in Australia.

As the regulations were, that was possible but they were never intended to create the tsunami that started developing and so some significant changes were urgently needed.
Many students who have undertaken study merely to get PR will be affected.
Abd then because of part-time work possible while on a student visa [ full time when outside of actual study periods ]and the possibility of bringing family here to work as well, it could be that there are even people who will seek to maximise work rather than study for two years wages for a couple in Australia could be a small fortune in another country.

The numbers of students from China and India in particular grew enormously over the last few years and was unsustainable and at the same time you have had students with limited english levels and also finances getting visas for financing is not something individually checked too rigorously and so shonkiness spread to the 10 to a room scenario re living, often run by people who may have association with other shonks, or from a similar background.
All was not good and it was not good news re immigration in total and you even have had various people saying Australia needs to provide better accommodation for this thousands flood of students.

So yep, there's been ample reasons for the regulations to be looked at including a closer scrutiny of student's finances but if your guy meets all the eligibility criteria, hopefully surfing will not be seen with too much suspicion.
How long is the course for and is it long enough might be more pertinent for you.

What do you mean long enough?

Is that an issue?
