All foreigners who come to study in Australia for a course of more than 3 months need to have a study visa in advance. If the course lasts less than 3 months, a tourist visa will suffice.

The Australian student visa has great advantages such as allowing you to enter and leave the country as many times as you need during its validity. Likewise, it is granted for one more month over the duration of the course, so that, if you wish, you can stay enjoy Australia when you finish studying.

There is a special type of visa that allows you to stay in Australia for up to a year, combining study, vacation, and work: the Working Holiday Visa. Citizens between the ages of 18 and 31 of some nationalities listed by the Government of Australia can apply for it: Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and, soon, Peru.

And let me tell you that we are not the only ones.
Year after year, thousands of students around the world think the same, and nearly 800,000 make it to Australia to fulfill their study dreams every year.
