International students applying to study at UNSW will now have their visa applications streamlined, thanks to a partnership agreement with the Federal Government.
Introduced this week, the Streamlined Visa Process (SVP) simplifies the documentation required and fast-tracks applications for international students enrolled in Bachelor, Masters or Doctoral degree programs.
Under the new arrangements for universities, qualifying students, irrespective of their country of origin, are classified as a low migration risk, meaning a less onerous process for these applicants.
The changes, announced by Minister for Tertiary Education, Senator Chris Evans, were recommended by the Knight Review.
UNSW is working closely with our education partners onshore and overseas to implement the new system.
