Student Visa Australia Philippines
Australia is a great country, most of the people live in modern sophisticated cities, don't worry if you are afraid of snakes and spiders they don't come into the city areas very much! There are a lot of common misconceptions about Australia among different countries, probably due to the stereotyping from movies, t.v series and history. No there are not Crocodile Dundee type men running about with giant knives, and no Kangaroos do not bound down urban streets!
Most of the people in Australian capital cities tend to be reasonably affluent, with broad minded ideas and are not racist, of course you encounter narrow minded people in every country in the world, but Australians are largely educated and cosmopolitan in outlook.
Gaining a student visa to study in Australia is dependent on the type of study you wish to undertake, also there is a guardian visa for those students under 18 years of age and who need a guardian to travel with them. There is a 'working holiday' visa which gives you a limited entitlement to find certain type of work. The various type of student visa cover the different circumstances of students and there are seven distinct classes currently available:
- Independent ELICOS (Subclass 570)
- Schools (Subclass 571)
- Vocational Education and Training (Subclass 572)
- Higher Education (Subclass 573)
- Postgraduate Research (Subclass 574)
- Non-award (Subclass 575)
- Foreign Affairs or Defence (Subclass 576)
Every tertiary institution and college have special people available to talk to, they are student counsellors, they provide advice and information about all aspects of being a student in Australia. The lifestyle of students in Australia, including visa holders, is pretty good you can find good accommodation, often shared with other students from your own country, and the cost of living is very modest. The current exchange rate favours the American dollar so bear this in mind when you bring your own currency. The climate in most Australian cities is very good, of course Australia is a very large country so you can go from tropical in Brisbane right down to temperate in Hobart Tasmania.
Applying for any kind of visa to work study or just visit Australia begins with research, do as much initial research online as you can, talk with Australian students in forums, but do not depend on this for your information, only migrant officers can give you the real story.

There are those students who gain a visa and decide they want to stay in Australia and gain more work expeience, there is a visa to cover this also. Whatever you decide, you will benefit greatly by choosing to come to Australia to study and work.
