There’s no doubt that a great mentor can be invaluable to your career — after all, mentors are able to provide you with insightful feedback, introduce you to important connections and maybe even help you find your dream job.

  • Will the 457 visa ban have an effect on foreign students studying in Australia? minus icon for close question plus icon for open question

    The 457 visa ban won’t have any direct impact on foreign students. Similarly, a student visa holder won’t be affected by the 457 visa changes. However, if students plan to apply for the 457 Visa, they will be in the same position as other people applying for the 457 Visa.  

    Students looking to get work visa will have to apply for the permanent visa directly, rather than risking a temporary working visa.

  • No, one cannot arrive in Australia before the OSHC starts. The Department of Home

    Affairs work meticulously to maintain compliance of health insurance in Australia.

    If you do not have OSHC plan when you arrive in Australia, you are in breach of student visa condition, which could cause many problems, with the rejection of visa being the major one. As such, you must not enter Australia before your OSHC has begun and

    you must not remain in Australia without health insurance. If you arrive in Australia

    before or after the date of your OSHC commencement, you will need to update the

    coverage duration of your OSHC policy.

    OSHC is required when applying for the student visa

    You cannot get a student visa without submitting a valid overseas student health cover

    for that period. You cannot enter Australia without a valid visa. International students

    from some European countries might not require OSHC as they have reciprocal health

    care arrangement with Australia.

  • It’s always good to get connected with people rather than feeling lonely. While being connected through culture, the bond gets closer and stronger while we get to know about the culture that next person. Through the exchange of lifestyle, you can feel like home in a foreign land surrounded by people with uniqueness. Australia is rich in culture and has diversity in it.

    The culture of Australia is primarily a Western culture, to some extent derived from Britain but also influenced by the unique geography of Australia, the cultural input of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and other Australian people. The dominant religion in Australia is Christianity, with about 52% of the population identifying as Christian.

    Australians are generally laid back, open and direct.
