UoN Visa Information
A student visa is required for all students wishing to study in Australia.
Entry into Australia must take place within twelve weeks of obtaining the student visa, so students cannot apply for it more than three months prior to their departure. Upon acceptance into the University of Newcastle, all of the necessary documents that students need to apply for their visa will be provided to them by UW-Platteville Education Abroad.
Students will be given additional information and instructions upon acceptance into the program, but please note that the cost of an Australian student visa is paid out-of-pocket by the student and is not included in UW-Platteville Education Abroad’s program cost. As of January 2013, the Australian student visa fee for U.S. citizens in AUD$535.
