Extend your student visa
International students on a student visa must complete their course within the duration specified in their Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) (Standard 9 of the National Code 2007). The University may only extend a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) where documented compassionate or compelling circumstances exist, an intervention strategy is being implemented or a student has been granted an approved deferment or suspension of study.
If your student visa expires before you complete your course, you must submit a new student visa application to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) before your current visa expires.
