Furthermore, you'll need to prove you have enough money to financially support yourself for the year; it's recommended you show you have around A$18,000 (£9,334). However, if you're receiving full funding instead, you'll have to provide proof of this.
There's also a chance that you may have to have a medical check up to prove good health but only if you're asked to. For this, you need to ensure you go to a doctor which has been approved by the Australian Immigration Department. You'll also need to purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) which is about $437 (£227).
To get a student Visa you also need a passport which will not expire for a minimum of 6 months after your planned return date and to show you have no substantial criminal record and are not likely to engage in criminal activity whilst in Australia.
