Your Student Visa
International students studying at UNSW require a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from UNSW and a visa from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection for the length of their program. For most international students, this will be a student visa, a category of visa that has different subclasses depending on the program they are studying.
Students and their dependants can find out their visa conditions, study entitlements and work entitlements online using VEVO, a free service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To use VEVO go: http://www.border.gov.au/vevo
For personal advise about your student visa, make an appointment with an International Student Advisor at Student Development International.
