Changes to online study rules for student visa holders
The Australian Government has announced that all providers are expected to return to full compliance with the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code) by 30 June 2023.
This means temporary measures introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic providing student visa holders with the flexibility to study their program online, will end on 30 June 2023.
This change will affect the amount of face-to-face learning that international students with a student visa (subclass 500) will be allowed to study.
