Information about what happens when you change your visa type.
Yes, you are required to advise Deakin of any change of visa status. Ideally, this should be done within 5 working days of the date your visa status changes. You are required to provide scanned copy of new visa and passport to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, you can present your new visa document and passport to Student Central to forward to email@example.com.
No. Students who have temporary resident (TR) status are considered international students for fee purposes. However, if you get a TR visa, you will not be subject to the conditions of an international student visa.
As a permanent resident (PR), you will be considered a domestic student. However, this does not mean that you will be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place. Please also refer to the Low completion and Government assistance webpage to view the changes to the Commonwealth supported place, HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP.
You will require a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) to lodge a student visa application. Please complete the following:
- Complete the Student CoE form online
- Student Central will complete a course map with the expected completion date and forward this to International Admissions
- International Admissions who will check that you meet the eligibility requirements of an international student visa holder and, if so, will issue a new CoE and send this to you so that you can apply for your student visa.
