Your student visa conditions outline any conditions for you (and your partner) to undertake paid work. You can find out more about working while on a student visa and get up-to-date information from the Department of Home Affairs website.
Your Australia Awards entitlements don’t cover your family members, however many students have their family join them in Sydney either temporarily or for the duration of their scholarship. The International Sponsorships team can help you with the documents needed for your family members’ visa applications.
If your family is joining you in Sydney as dependants on your student visa, contact the International Sponsorships team for advice and support.
We recommend you wait at least three months before bringing your family to Australia. This gives you time to settle in, find somewhere to live and adapt to your new study environment before you assist your family with their transition.
To bring your family to Australia as dependants, you will need to provide some documents. This includes:
Your family and friends can visit you during your stay in Australia, although we recommend they visit during semester break.
In most cases, they will need to apply for a visitor visa to enter Australia. You can find information about visas on the Department of Home Affairs website.
If University documents are required to support their visa application, you can download a Certificate of Current enrolment through Sydney Student to attach to the application.
