Document to claim for functional English

Hi everyone,

My wife had been studying for 2 years full time in Australia at Central Queensland University. She is a secondary applicant in my visa application and required to provide evidence of functional English. Does any one know that what type of docs can I send to the Deparment to claim that she has fufil the functional English requirement? I already sent all her qualification and academic story to the Department but they still require to provide:
"evidence that you have completed at least one (1) year of full time study in Australia towards a degree or diploma qualifcation with all instruction conducted in English"
Your quick reply would be very appreciated.
Hawthorn.

means that her study needed to be fulltime towards the qualification
If her two years of study were not towards a diploma or degree to be awarded, then it'll not comply.
If it was you ought to be able to some sort of a certificate from the University that shows completion of Year 1 and then year 2 if need be.
A completion certificate is essentially what is required and not a story.

Thank you Wanderer,

But in her academic transcript clearly shown that the duration of her MBA course: Autumn term 2001, winter term 2001, autumn term 2002 then winter term 2002 on the same page (the transcript already submitted to the Department). it means her study was two years full time to be awarded a MBA degree. I am in doubt that the Immigration Dept would like to know whether her course of study was conducted in English or other language. Wanderer, do you think this is a case?
Appreaciate for your quick reply.

Regards,

It could be they are questioning the actual period of study for just what months did the Autumn and Winter terms constitute each year.
Immi may work on the principle they apply for approved study and that's a rating of 92 weeks for the course work and done over a minimum of 16 months for two years so they could expect to see one years study as being 8 months.
It is something you should be able to clarify with the CO by asking against what she has actually done as verified by academic records/award, whether that does not neet the standard expected.

Thank you for your advice.
My wife is now qualified for fuctional English requirement. CO innitially thought that she did the degree in other country, not in Australia.

My application just has CO allocated. Does any one know that how long does it normally take to make the final decision of visa being granted?
Thank you.

Processing times can vary and they will obviously be different for different visas.
Have a look at Client Service Charter for an indication but that is based on historical data and if more applications are being received or are ahead of your application that will obviously have an effect.
