If you are on other than student visa in Australia and wanted to apply for a student visa you must apply for a new student visa.

Student visa extension criteria for those who already have completed substantial part of the course or completed their course in Australia: 

Substantial part of the course:

There is no fixed mathematical formulas to determine what equates to a ‘substantial component’ of a course. If you have completed about 75% of the course officer might consider this as completed substantial part of the course. However, this varies by case to case.


You must be enrolled in a full time course registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

Applying outside Australia: provide a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) for each course of study with your visa application.

Applying inside Australia: You must be enrolled in a full time course before we grant your visa.

If you are applying for more than 1 course in your student visa application you must include all CoE codes in the application form or your visa period may only consider the duration of the course according to the the CoE provided. 


in the 2 years before applying for the student visa, you completed, in Australia and in the English language, either the Senior Secondary Certificate of Education or a substantial component of a course leading to a qualification from the Australian Qualifications Framework at the Certificate IV or higher level, while you held a student visa.


You and your family members must be covered by Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) from an approved Australian health insurance provider, unless an ‘Exception’ applies. 

Applicants outside Australia: Your cover must start from the day you and your family arrive in Australia, not the day your course starts. 

Applicants inside Australia: There should be no gap between your previous health cover and your OSHC.


If the document checklist indicates you must provide evidence of your financial capacity, attach the evidence to your visa application. Immigration department can refuse visa without asking you for more information if you don’t have finance.
