Permanent Residency or Post-Study Work Rights If you apply for Australian Permanent Residence (in the future)
under the Department of Home Affairs (previously named Department of Immigration and Border Protection)
General Skilled Migration program or for a Temporary Graduate Visa (Post-Study Work Rights) you will need to
meet the Australian study requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure you check these requirements
carefully to ensure that you enrol appropriately. We recommend you seek advice on this before accepting
your Advanced Standing Offer. Please refer to Department of Home Affairs’ website at homeaffairs.gov.au
International Student Visas Holders, as you hold a student visa you must complete your course of study
within the time stated on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE), to meet visa requirements. If your course
length is reduced as a result of Advanced Standing (credit), La Trobe International will issue a new CoE.
This means that you will be expected to complete your course based on the new course length, regardless of
your visa expiry date. You are required to contact the Department of Home Affairs when you receive the updated CoE.
La Trobe International can provide general advice only on matters related to international students including
procedures for Student visa extension. It is advised to read further details at www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Trav/Stud
