A bursary applies where two or more students from the same family study with a Navitas member institution.* The first family member can be studying with a Navitas member institution at the same time as other family members, or they may have previously studied with any Navitas member institution. The bursary is granted to the second and subsequent family members who study with a Navitas member institution. For the purpose of this bursary, a family member is defined as a husband, wife, brother, sister, mother, father, son, daughter or stepchild. The bursary is equivalent to 10 percent of tuition fee for the first attempt at units or courses in the program of study (i.e. a certificate, diploma, University Transfer Program (UTP), bachelors degree, premasters program, postgraduate qualifying program or masters degree) with a Navitas member institution (excluding the Mixed English option). This amount is credited to the eligible students tuition fee account each academic term, with the amount being relevant to the number of units undertaken in that term. The bursary does not apply to additional units or repeat units that may also be undertaken. A completed application must be submitted to the Navitas institution where the second family member is studying, together with supporting documents such as a birth certificate or family card.^ Application forms can be obtained from the Navitas institution where the student has enrolled.

International student visas


Do I need a student visa?
All international students must possess a current student visa while they are studying in Australia. This information does not apply to prospective students who are Australian citizens or residents of Australia.

What are the visa conditions?


To maintain your visa, you must: maintain satisfactory attendance maintain satisfactory academic progress maintain a valid enrolment at SIBT and inform SIBT if you change your student status advise SIBT within seven days if you change your Australian address have enough money to cover tuition fees and living expenses while in Australia not work more than 40 hours per fortnight during a semester (see below) maintain valid Overseas Student Health Cover (see below) not transfer between registered education providers within the first six months of the starting date of your principal course, without a release letter from your principal education provider* Your SIBT program is your principal course, unless it is packaged with a Macquarie University degree. For more information about visa conditions and regulations, visit immi.gov.au/students.

How long is my visa valid?


Your student visa will be issued for the duration of your SIBT course, as stated in the CoE that you will receive from SIBT. If you plan to continue your studies at Macquarie University, your SIBT and Macquarie University courses will be packaged together and you will receive a CoE for both. The advantage of this is that you will receive one visa for the entire duration of your studies at SIBT and Macquarie University. Please note: If your SIBT course finishes in October and your principal course at Macquarie University starts in February of the following year, Australian immigration law may require you to leave Australia between October and February. SIBT takes no responsibility for students who fail to take this into consideration when selecting their course units.

One visa for all your studies


As an SIBT student, you can apply for a single visa to cover the duration of your studies. Under this visa you can package your SIBT program, your degree at Macquarie University and your English language program (if required).

How do I apply?
Prospective international students intending to study in Australia must obtain a student visa from an Australian High Commission, Embassy or Consulate in their home country before travelling. Students from some countries can also apply online; to find out if you are eligible, visit immi.gov.au/e_visa/students.htm. All international students must comply with current visa conditions and regulations determined by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). If you have any questions about your visa application, you can contact an SIBT representative in your home country. For a list of authorised SIBT representatives, go to sibt.nsw.edu.au/sibtrepresentatives.

How do I renew my visa?


It is your responsibility to renew or extend your visa as required, before it expires. You must present specific documents when applying for a student visa extension or renewal. For more information on how to renew your visa, visit immi.gov.au/e_visa/students.htm.

Do I need health cover?


As a condition of your student visa, you must maintain Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) while in Australia. You must obtain this cover for the proposed duration of your visa. If you have an accident or health problem within Australia, you will be able to redeem some or all of your medical costs. SIBT can organise OSHC on your behalf to cover the duration of your studies. Further details will be provided in your letter of offer. For more information, visit oshcworldcare.com.au.

Can I work in Australia while on a student visa?


If you are an international student currently enrolled and attending classes, you may work up to 40 hours per fortnight while your course is in session, and fulltime hours during scheduled course breaks. However, you should not rely on parttime work to support your study, as the amount you earn will be unlikely to cover all your living costs. Please be aware that your primary purpose in Australia while on a student visa is to study, and that any work you undertake must not interfere with your studies.

What are the visa requirements?


There are requirements that must be met before a student visa is issued, and these vary from country to country. The main requirements for a visa application may include: a Letter of Offer from SIBT an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from SIBT, which is issued after you have paid your tuition and other required fees a medical checkup proof of academic history and English proficiency proof of financial support

What if I have dependants?


If you are a prospective international student and you have any schoolaged dependants coming to Australia with you, you must pay full fees for each dependant who is to be enrolled in a government or nongovernment school.

* The provision of education to international students is regulated by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) through the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework. An overview of this framework, including the rights and responsibilities of international students, is available at aei.gov.au.
