Student Visa Application

Would it be better to apply for a student visa before/after applying for a university? Or should I wait til I get an offer from the Uni?

Also..how long does it normally take to process an application for a student visa.

Help appreciated,

Luke

You do need to have an acceptance letter for a recognised CRICOS course as part of the student eligibility requirements, details via Students - Visas & Immigration
With everything met, student visas are usually processed within a few weeks.

Thanks. I have good enough grades just need to get down to applying..

My last stumbling block however..does Australia have a finance system for students? I know the UK does, but only covers us for study in the UK itself. I'm guessing Australia is the same with their home-grown students.

Is there a company or whatnot that supports international students wanting to study in Australia..eg. Living costs/university fees?

Help appreciated.

There's what is called the HECS in Australia for Australian tertiary students where they can basically pay for the tertiary education fees by additional taxation when they are earning over a certain salary level.
There is nothing for international students that I am aware of and you'll see that the student visas do have a financial aspect in the eligibility requirements.
