International Student


Student Visas

Student visas are normally granted for the duration of your course of study. The following conditions apply:
As an international student, you must complete your course within the minimum course duration listed on your CoE;
You must leave Australia after completion of your studies; DHE must report any student who does not attend classes or who is not making satisfactory progress. If you wish to stay in Australia for your graduation ceremony, you may need to apply for a visitor class visa. It is your responsibility to comply with the conditions of your student visa. For a full list of conditions, refer to the Department of Home Affairs

Plan Your Arrival

Once you have been accepted into a course with DHE, you should start planning your move to a new country. This includes getting information on confirming your visa, finding an accommodation, cost of living in Melbourne, organising an airport pickup to your accommodation, and packing all the essentials for the big move. To help you plan, we will send you a pre-arrival check-list once you have enrolled to study with us.


Orientation is a two-day program which is designed to help you transition into the course and into living in Melbourne with ease. We aim to provide a positive and successful transition for all commencing students to the course, campus, and learning environment through the orientation process. We intend to familiarise you with the academic, social, administrative, and geographical environment at DHE. During orientation sessions, you will be given information on your course and essential resources. You will be introduced to Canvas LMS, the library and library services, student support services and key contacts. You will meet other students from diverse backgrounds, enrolled in your course, take a campus tour, engage in social activities, learn some basics about the Australian culture, customs and traditions and meet your teaching and support staff. More information will be provided to you once you are enrolled with us.

It is our priority to make sure that you have an successful learning experience with us. To help you plan, we will send you a pre-arrival check-list once you have enrolled to study with us.
