  • #1 Get your CoE ready (Confirmation of Enrollment)

Generally this is a document that must be provided by your institution as proof of enrollment. In order to get a student visa, this is the first document you must make sure to possess. Once your admission has been granted, your institution will need to send you this document as proof of your enrollment. The document provides all the details about your enrollment such as :weather you are a scholarship or self sponsored student(have paid tuition fees),have the relevant health care insurance, if your institution is registered in the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) and your course is full time or not etc. Usually you will receive this document via email as soon as your admission is out.

  • #2 Get your English Language Certificate ready

Usually most universities have standards for the English language requirement that meets the visa requirement. For ielts  ,your overall score should be above 6.5 and preferably if no band is below 6.

  • #3 Get an adequate Health Insurance Cover(OSHC) ready

This is another essential Australian study visa requirement that you must meet by the time you are applying for your visa application. Living cost is really high in Australia and so does medical expenses. So Australian Government expects you to have the adequate health cover enough to carter for your medical expenses if you get sick while in Australia. If you are a self sponsored student, make sure you organize with your institution to make arrangements for appropriate Overseas Student Health Cover(OSHC) or you can buy one directly from one of the approved providers: 
ahm OSHC ,  Allianz Global Assistance (Peoplecare Health) , BUPA Australia , CBHS International Health , Medibank Private , NIB OSHC.
The cover should start from the day you enter Australia not the day your course starts. Usually those on scholarships, this will be arranged automatically by your institutions during your admission course. All international students must meet this requirement except students from Norway, Belgium, Sweden as they have been covered by other Insurance schemes by their nations or cover under reciprocal health care with Australian.

So What is exactly genuine temporary entrant (GTE) ?This is like an agreement letter (A genuine temporary entrant statement) where you are stating your genuineness about coming to Australia temporary with the sole purpose to gain quality education. This requirements need you to show or proof that you are just a temporary entrant in Australia, to stay just for your study period and have no further incentive to remain or what ever. In addiction to your genuine temporary entrant statement, generally, to assess this particular criteria, the Australian Department of home-affairs will consider  the following factors also: 

  -The situation in your home country

  • #6 Get ready for the Health Requirements

This requirement requires you to go for a medical check up while applying for your student visa. Australia has a really good health standard, so usually before you are granted a visa, they need to be sure that you meet the minimum health standard required for this. In most cases you might be asked do some medical examinations including x-rays, and body check ups. The Medical examinations you need to do sometimes might also depend on your country of residence, and how long you will be staying in Australia. Usually they direct you to approved medical centers in your country of residence. Once done, the results are sent to them directly by the medical institution, you won't get to see it. You will only receive a confirmation later about it  by email if it was successful or not.

  • #7 Get ready for the Financial Requirements

As of 2018,the amount you expected proof as a requirement to meet the Australian living cost per year is AU$20,290 (~US$13,750).This is with Tuition fees set aside. How ever, just providing this amount is not enough, you must show evidence as to how you earned that amount.
