Students are also encouraged to undertake research on living and studying in Australia prior to submitting an application.
Education agents promote various Australian education programs and institutions internationally and are a good way for students to apply to study in Australia. Agents are experienced in assisting with international student applications and applying for visas. Most speak both English and the local language, so this makes the application process a lot simpler and generally hassle free for students and parents. Most do not charge for their service as they collect a commission from the institution you choose to attend. However, some agents do charge small amounts or offer additional services for which they charge.
A migration agent can assist you in submitting your visa application and communicate with the Australian Department of Home Affairs (DHA) on your behalf, but please note that you do not need to use a migration agent to lodge any kind of visa application. Please Note: Although able to assist in completing education and visa applications, Education agents are not licensed to provide migration advice.
