Please note: Australian Immigration states that international students must attend at least 80% of their classes to fulfil their visa requirements. You will be marked absent from class even if you have a medical certificate. The College must inform Australian Immigration if a student does not comply with the requirements of their student visa. For this reason, it is your responsibility to check the requirements of your visa before taking leave.
International students wanting to study in Australia must also meet certain financial requirements. Students are required to have genuine access to sufficient funds while studying in Australia, including the cost of travel, tuition, school costs for any dependents, and living costs.
