Student Visa Assessment Levels - Information

Australia provides various visa assessment levels; based on the nation of the candidate and what course do they intend to take in Australia. Options of study courses comprises of English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Individuals for students willing to study only English language, school course both primary and secondary, professional education and training, university education for senior students, postgraduate PhDs, and non degree courses for students who will attend the classes on a fulltime basis but without being awarded an Australian degree/diploma at the end of the course.

Student Visa Assessment Levels: How it is determined?

Every country, in every segment of education, is allocated an Assessment Level which is dependent on the planned immigration risk created by students from that nation pursuing a course in that education segment.

To decide the Assessment Level of a specific nation and education segment, the department look at that segment's observance with their visa rules and regulations and various other pointers of their immigration risk in the earlier years.

In cases where these numerical pointers reveal that a segment has a greater level of immigration risk over a continued number of years, the department reacts to this tendency by increasing the Assessment Level of that segment. As a result, this needs candidates to provide an increased level of proof to hold up their assertion that they are willing to study in Australia.

In cases where a segment's pointers reveal that they are likely to follow all the rules and regulations of their visa, these lower migration risk segments have their Assessment Level decreased.

The department frequently carries out an all inclusive risk assessment of the whole student visa cases and reassess the Assessment Levels to make sure that they are parallel to the migration risk of various education segments.

How to determine your Assessment Level?

The passport you have and the education segment of the main educational course you opted for will decide the Assessment Level of your visa request.

To discover the Assessment Level for your visa request, go with your passport type and align it with the visa subclass for the education segment of the course you intend to pursue.
