Question:

I am an international student. Can I stay in Australia after my course ends?

Answer:

 

If you complete your studies earlier than expected, the university is obliged to notify the Department of Immigration that you have finished your degree. You will receive an email to your student email account informing you that this has occurred.


To stay in Australia and attend your graduation ceremony, or for any other reason it is recommended that you contact the Department of Immigration directly. You may need to take with you a copy of your Completion Letter, which is automatically sent to all students who have qualified for their program of study.
