Studying on a Partner Temporary Visa

Hello,

I have a question that I haven't been able to find an answer for. It is in regards to studying in Australia on Partner Temporary Visas 820, 309.

I am currently on a Student visa and enrolled in TAFE paying full intentional tuition fees. Ideally I would like to attend university but the fees for uni tuition are out of my price range.

Furthermore, I am in a relationship with an Australian citizen and have been for some time(living together). We are considering A De Facto Partnership visa but are deciding on weather it would be more economical in regards to uni fees to apply onshore(820) or offshore(309).

I notice on the immi website that under 'What you can do in Australia' for the Partner Temporary Visa 309 is says:

* you are permitted to enter or remain in Australia with your partner, until a decision is made regarding your permanent visa
* you are entitled to work in Australia
* you are entitled to study in Australia, but you will not have access to government funding for tertiary study
* you may enrol in Australia's medical benefits expenses and hospital care scheme, Medicare.
See: Medicare



While the 820 lists:

* remain in Australia with your partner, until a decision is made regarding your permanent visa
* work in Australia
* study in Australia, but you will not have access to government funding for tertiary study and will be charged international upfront full fees
* enrol in Australia's medical benefits expenses and hospital care scheme, Medicare
See: Medicare

My assumption would be that under the temp partner visa 309 I would be able to avoid the outrageous international tuition fees but would not be eligible for government funding such as a HECS-HELP loan, while on an 820 I would have to pay full up front international fees.

I would like to go to university and avoid these fees. Has anyone had any experience with attending uni while on a Partner Temporary Visas 309? Or is it up to the university's desegregation?


Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

Lee
