Student visa - transferring school

Recommended Posts

My nephew is currently a year 9 international student with valid student visa studying in Melbourne but he and his parents wish to transfer to a secondary school in Perth next year. Just wondering what's the process as I have searched on the WA official website (WA TIWA) but there is no mention of transferring, only new application. Also emailed them but they only give standard answer of please look through website. 

I assume that he will put in application for spot in available schools, then receive letter of offer, pay fees and etc and let the department home affair know he changed school? Or does he need to go through the visa process again?

Are you sure he is on a student visa and not on his parents visa?

Yes, his parents live in another country. He is on student visa and staying in homestay.

Then this would be one for an agent as in my years on here, I haven't come across a none adult on a student visa.
