The Overseas Students Program allows people who are not Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents to study in Australia. Any person who is not an Australian resident may apply to study in Australia under this program.
An applicant who wishes to study under the program must obtain a student visa before commencing a course of study in Australia. An applicant can be granted a student visa only if they are going to undertake a registered course or part of a registered course on a full-time basis. A registered course is an education or training course offered by an Australian education provider who is registered with the Australian Government to offer courses to overseas students.
The Department of Education, Science and Training http://cricos.detya.gov.au/
can provide details of registered courses.
The Australian education system is divided broadly into four levels of schooling: primary; secondary; vocational education; and training and higher education.
There are other options available to students from other countries wishing to undertake study in Australia, including English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) and non-award courses.
