Australia Lowers Visa Assessment Levels

Posted on April 12th, 2011 by InternationalStudentGuru

As of April 2nd 2011, the visa assessment levels for 38 countries have officially been lowered for those wanting to study in Australia. What this means is that students will have less documents to submit to apply for a visa, hopefully making it easier for students to gain entry to study in Australia.

With the well documented problems Australia has had over the last few years with international students and violence towards them, it seems the government are making some changes to try and reverse the trend of declining student numbers. The negative press from all the violence was having an impact on student numbers, especially from countries such as India.

In 2009/2010, there were 270,499 visas granted to international students with most of those coming from India, China and South Korea. “Prospective students and their families, agents and education providers should be aware that these changes will lower the minimum evidentiary requirements needed for the grant of a student visa for the selected countries and education sectors,” a Department of Immigration and Citizenship spokesman said in the statement.
