Important Student Visa Changes to Assessment Levels from Early 2014

Following the release the Review of the Student Visa Assessment Level Framework 2013 Report the Government has announced a proposed simplification of the Student Visa Assessment level Framework which would include:

  • Only three assessment levels (AL1, AL2 and AL3)
  • countries and education sectors currently subject to AL4 would  be reduced to AL3.
  • financial requirements for an AL3 student visa applicant would be reduced from the current 18 months to 12 months. These funds must be provided by a close relative of the student visa applicant.

The proposed changes would lower the minimum evidentiary requirements needed for the grant of a Student visa for AL3 countries and education sectors, providing a benefit to prospective students; however, AL3 applicants (Filipinos) would no longer be able to use a non-relative as the sponsor for the financial support/show money.  Under the proposed changes, the funds would need to be either demonstrated through savings or a bank loan, either in the name of the student visa applicant or close relative.
