There are a number of things to organise and check before you make the decision to change either your course of study or your institution. You should first ask your student support services on campus or other advisors for help and advice. And make sure that you first check your student visa requirements and ensure you follow the correct procedures to maintain your visa. Don’t assume that the advice you get from friends, fellow students or education agents is correct. And you should also make sure you keep a copy of your course cancellation and enrolment paperwork.
Remember, if you change your institution or course at any time you must contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) (opens in a new window) and provide an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) certificate from your new institution.
