New screening arrangements for international students in Australia

Under screening arrangements connected with the new simplified student visa in Australia all prospective international students must prove to be genuine.

A pre-visa screening assessment is usually conducted by the International Admissions department of the university in Australia and education providers are required to ensure that all applications are from students who meet genuine temporary entrant requirements.

Under the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP)'s Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF), overseas students must have the financial capacity to support their study in Australia.

The university requires each international applicant to submit a detailed personal statement of study purpose with their application and they must provide documentary evidence of financial capacity.

Students must have genuine access to either sufficient funds to cover themselves and any accompanying family members for their first 12 months in Australia or sufficient ongoing income to cover these costs. Students may also be asked to provide further documentation and/or speak with a university representative for a quick interview.

'If the university forms the opinion that you did not pass the pre-visa screening, it may refuse to assess your application, withdraw an offer of a place or cancel your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE),' said a Department of Immigration spokesman.

The rules also mean that universities do not generally accept applications from students who have been refused a student visa within the previous two years. Any students found submitting fake information such as documents, work experience, and financial claims will be banned from applying for a visa in Australia for a three year period.

Australia's simplified student visa framework came into effect at the beginning of July and is designed to make the process of applying for a student visa simpler.
