Overview of Student Visa Changes to Assist International Education Sector

调整学生签证政策,推动国际教育发展

 

On 16 December 2010, the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Bowen, and the Minister for Tertiary Education, Senator Chris Evans, announced a strategic review of the student visa program and package of measures to ease the pressure on the international education sector.

2010年12月16日,澳大利亚移民与公民事务部(以下简称移民部)部长Chris Bowen和高等教育部长Chris Evans参议员宣布将对学生签证项目进行策略复审,以及多项具体措施以减轻国际教育部门的压力。

Certificate Level Vocational Education and Training courses

The department has updated its policy to reflect amendments implemented within the vocational education and training (VET) sector regarding the certificate level courses.

证书级别的职业教育与培训课程

移民部已更新相关政策,以体现对职业教育与培训证书级别的课程所作的改变。

From today, VET (subclass 572) visa applicants who are assessment level 4 may undertake a package of certificate level courses to meet requirements for the grant of a visa.

从今天起,职业教育与培训(572类)学生签证评估等级(AL)4的学生签证申请人可以就读证书级别的配套课程,这将能够满足获得学生签证的要求。

Applicants can package up to four certificate level courses, which total at least one year’s duration, where one element is a certificate IV level course.Previously for these applicants, it was a requirement that the certificate IV alone was of at least one year’s duration.

申请人能够配套就读最多四门证书级别的课程,所有证书课程的总学期至少为一年,并且课程中包含一门四级证书课程。而此前仅就读四级证书一门课程,就必须至少一年时间。

Prepaid formal boarding fees

预付正式寄宿学校的住宿费

Implemented immediately, the department will refine policy on the assessment of tuition and boarding fees by student visa processing officers.This will encourage providers to separate the boarding component of fees prepaid by students from the tuition fees so that prepaid boarding fees can be counted towards the students’ cost of living requirements.

移民部将调整学生签证评审官对学费和寄宿学校住宿费的评估政策,此调整将立即实施。这将鼓励学校将学生预付的寄宿学校的住宿费与学费分列出来,这样,学生已预付的寄宿学校的住宿费就可以从签证申请所要求的生活费用中扣除。

New statistical publication

公布新的统计数据

The Ministers have committed to improve information exchange between the government and the sector.

移民部长和高等教育部长承诺将改进政府与院校间的信息交流。

The first initiative, an in-depth statistical publication on the student visa program will be available on the department’s website from January 2011. This publication will be updated on a quarterly basis.

第一项计划是从2011年1月起,将在移民部的网站上公布有深度的学生签证统计数据。公布的数据将每季度更新一次。

Changes to assessment levels

签证评估等级(AL)的调整 

Assessment levels (ALs) are a risk management approach applied to all student visas, determining the amount of evidence visa applicants need to supply and the level of scrutiny with which their claims are assessed.

签证评估等级是一种针对所有学生签证类别的风险管理方法,它决定了签证申请人需提供哪些证明材料以及评审他们的申请所需达到的调查程度。

From April 2011, ALs will be reduced, so that 38 countries will have their assessment level lowered across one or more subclasses.A full list of the proposed changes is included below.

从2011年4月起,一些签证评估等级将被降低。38个国家的签证评估等级将在一个或多个学生签证类别中降低。以下所附清单列出了所有提议的签证评估等级的调整。

我获得了就读三级证书和专科文凭配套课程的学生签证,我还必需就读专科文凭课程吗?

You should continue to study the package that you presented for your student visa application as a certificate level III course by itself does not meet the requirements for the grant of a student visa.

你应该继续就读在申办学生签证时所递交的配套课程,因为仅凭学习三级证书课程是不能获得学生签证的。

I lodged my student visa application for a vocational education and training visa before 1 January 2011.My application is still being processed.Can I change my courses now that I can study all certificate level courses?

我在201111号前递交了职业教育与培训学生签证申请,我的签证申请还在审理中。既然我可以就读所有证书级别的课程了,我现在是否可以更换课程?

你还应该确保学校签发的录取确认书或留位证明信上所显示的学费中不包含寄宿费。这将确保移民部准确计算学生所需的学费。

The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship has signed a new legislative instrument that specified an updated list of the types of courses that correspond with each subclass of visa.

移民部长已签署了一项新的法律文件,对课程类型与对应的签证种类目录予以更新。

 

The reason for this change is to align migration legislation with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

作出这种变化的初衷是为了使澳大利亚移民法能够与澳大利亚学历资格框架(英文简称AQF)及澳大利亚联邦政府招收海外学生院校及课程注册登记(英文简称CRICOS)相一致。

This will come into effect on 1 January 2011 with the following changes:

下列这些变化将从2011年1月1日起生效。

  • Renaming the Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses under Subclass 572 (Vocational Education and Training Sector) to : Vocational Education and Training Diploma and Vocational Education and Training Advanced Diploma将572类学生签证(职业教育与培训)中的专科文凭(Diploma)和高级专科文凭(Advanced Diploma)重新命名为职业教育与培训专科文凭(Vocational Education and Training Diploma)和职业教育与培训高级专科文凭(Vocational Education and Training Advanced Diploma
  • Specifying two courses under Subclass 573 (Higher Education Sector) : Higher Education Diploma and Higher Education Advanced Diploma规定了两种课程类型按照573类学生签证(高等教育)进行评审,一类是高等教育专科文凭(Higher Education Diploma),另一类是高等教育高级专科文凭(Higher Education Advanced Diploma
  • Removing three obsolete courses under Subclass 572: Certificate, Advanced Certificate and Associate Diploma. These courses have not been specified under the AQF or CRICOS since 2005.取消了572类学生签证中三类已被废弃的课程:专科证书(Certificate),高级专科证书(Advanced Certificate)和准专科文凭(Associate Diploma。这三类课程自2005年起就不在AQF和CRICOS体系中了。

Subclass 572 visa holders granted prior to 1 January 2011 who are studying HE Diplomas and HE Advanced Diplomas either as a single course, or in a course package, will be unaffected by this change.

在2011年1月1日前获得572类学生签证并就读高等教育专科文凭(Higher Education Diploma)和高等教育高级专科文凭(Higher Education Advanced Diploma)的签证持有人将不受此变化的影响。
