Immigration Consultants for Student Visa
Australia is a great place to study. Australia is known for its friendly, laid-back nature, excellent education system, and high standard of living. Living expenses and tuition costs are considerably lower in Australia than they are in the United States and United Kingdom.
Students are allowed to work up to 40 hours per fortnight while they are studying in Australia. They may also work unlimited hours during their study breaks. This is a great opportunity for students who want to earn money to help with living expenses during their stay, and for students who want to gain work experience in their field of interest while they study.
Generally, applicants can have family members accompanying them to Australia for the duration of their courses.
