Australian Embassy has given very clear visa guidelines. Along with submission of forms, funds have to be shown to the embassy which cover a student (and dependants in case spouse or children are accompanying) for studies, living and travel cost.
You must declare on your application that you have enough money to pay for travel, tuition and living expenses for yourself, your partner and your dependent children for the duration of your stay in Australia. You must also have enough money to support your partner and dependent children, even if they do not travel with you to Australia.
The table below outlines the amounts in Australian dollars (AUD) that you need access to. These amounts are the minimum required for this visa. They do not necessarily represent the cost of living in Australia.
|Expenses||Per Person||Amount required in AUD|
|Travel||Yourself||Return air fare to Australia|
|Family members||One return air fare to Australia per person|
|Children aged 5-18||AUD8000 per year|
|Living||Yourself||AUD18 610 per year|
|Partner||AUD6515 per year|
|First child||AUD3720 per year|
|Each other child||AUD2790 per year|
The department must be satisfied that an applicant, once in Australia, will have the sufficient funds they claim to possess to cover the travel, tuition and living costs for themselves and their family members.
