About your study visa to Australia and AGI

To study in Australia you will need a visa and all applicants for a Student visa must show they are coming to Australia temporarily to gain a quality education. It is essential to understand the requirements to study in Australia before you apply for a visa.

The purpose of this visa is to allow international students to undertake full-time education and training in Australia (20 hours per week). This visa enables a student to:

    • stay in Australia for the duration of the relevant course
    • work up to 20 hours per week during study and full time during holidays
    • The student must enrol, or in some cases have a letter of offer, with an Australian education provider before lodging a visa application

The minimum requirements for this visa are:

    • enrol with the Australian Global Institute (AGI) as a full-time student, and obtain written confirmation of this enrolment from AGI
    • genuinely intend to complete the relevant period of study in Australia (genuine temporary entrant letter (GTE) made by you, we can assist you and provide examples and advice)
    • have the required level of English language proficiency unless exempt
    • have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the period of your intended stay in Australia (options provided by AGI)
    • have access to sufficient funds to cover your return airfares, tuition fees and the cost of living in Australia

The exact requirements for this visa will depend upon the level of risk assigned to your application (the ‘Immigration Risk’), which is a combined immigration risk assessment determined by the risk rating of the education provider and your passport nationality.

Lets now look at what you will need to include when making your GTE letter requirements. If you need extra assistance or advice, an education agent recommended by AGI who speaks your language can provide you advice specific to your circumstances and help you apply for a visa.

Your letter must include the following information:

    1. Your circumstances in their home country;
    2. Your potential circumstances in Australia (study)
    3. The value of the course to your future;
    4. Your immigration history;
    5. If you are under 18, the intent of the parent, guardian, or spouse; and
    6. Other relevant matters.


Students are welcome to arrange their own accommodation. This can include homestay where meals and accommodation are provided, share accommodation or leased accommodation as well as term options.
