An Australian study visa is a temporary visa, that enables you to remain in Australia for the duration of your study.
Guidelines issued as per the notification and w.e.f. July 1, 2016, for the Australian Student Visa, have changed, and a Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF) has been initiated.
According to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, all international students planning to study in Australia are now required to apply for a visa under Subclass 500 and this effectively combines the erstwhile subclasses 571 – 576 into one.
Australian universities have two intakes every year:

These figures however do not include high-value courses like medical degrees or veterinary science. They cost significantly more.
Usually the student visa Australia is processed within a month, however, the maximum time it could take is 3 months.
However, Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF) streamlines the visa processing time. Processing Time for Student Visa is:
|Foreign Affairs or Defense Sector
|Postgraduate Research Sector
|Independent ELICOS Sector
|Vocational Education and Training Sector
|Higher Education Sector
Since the SSVF process has streamlined, the standard time taken is anywhere between 4 – 6 weeks. This also depends upon the education institution and outstanding documents can always be requested if required and desired by the visa officer.
The higher education provider in Australia will issue the Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE) that is essential in the Student Visa Program (SVP) procedure. The application is then sent to the Department of Home Affairs.
It is recommended that you apply for the student visa at least 12 weeks before the day of orientation at the educational institution.
