  • How do I extend my Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)?

    You must request an extended Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) if your current CoE will expire before your original estimated course completion date. Please confirm your current CoE end date prior to submitting the extension request. You can find this date in your original CoE that was emailed to you before you started your course.

    You can submit a CoE extension request via the online application form.

    For more information on extending your COE, please refer to the Renewing your student visa website.

  • How and when can I extend my student visa?

    While you can’t extend your current visa, you can apply for a new visa if you haven't completed your course within your visa time frame. You can apply for a new student visa any time before your current one expires; however, it is recommended that you apply no more than four months before your current one expires.

    There are five steps involved in this process:

    1. Extend your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).

    2. Request a new Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

    3. Consider your location as this will influence the type of visa you're eligible for.

    4. Submit your application.

    5. Update your visa status.

  • When will I receive my new CoE?

    If your course duration is extended for an approved reason, a new Confirmation of Enrolment (COE) will be emailed to your student email address.

    Otherwise, if you submit a request for a new CoE, your request will be prioritised based on your visa end date.

  • Can I get a 1545 visa fee waiver form?

    You may be eligible to have your student visa application fee waived if you:

    • held a student visa on or after 1 February 2020, AND
    • deferred your study as you were unable to enter Australia due to travel restrictions
    • were forced to reduce to a part-time study load (this is only where a subject did not run)
    • were unable to complete your work-based training or placements.

    Voluntary decisions to reduce your study load, take a leave of absence, or failing subjects are not considered eligible for this waiver.  

    If you meet the eligibility requirements, please submit an enquiry to request Form 1545: 

    1. Use the subject line ‘1545 request’.
    2. Indicate what visa you're applying for (e.g., 500, 485).
    3. Outline how you meet the eligibility requirements.
