The new application process for student visas, The Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF), for the 2016-2017 is now out. Lucky for prospective students, it has never been easier for you to come study in Australia. According to Department of Immigration and Border Protection, there will be only one student visa available (Visa subclass 500) to study in Australia. This means that regardless of what you are studying, you will all be applying for the Student visa (subclass 500). Your student Guardian will have to apply for the new student Guardian visa (subclass 590). Furthermore, all student guardians will now have to apply for their visas online by creating an account in ImmiAccount.
