Genuine Student (GS) Requirement

All students applying for a student visa must meet the Australian Government Genuine Student Requirements. The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) has placed additional responsibility on providers to screen their prospective international students to ensure they are Genuine Students.

MIT has implemented additional screening measures to ensure students meet our GS requirements. These measures include student interviews, financial documents, document verification, and addressing GS questions.

The GS requirement is not intended to exclude students who, after studying in Australia, develop skills Australia needs and then apply for permanent residence.

You may also need to submit a Genuine Student Test (GST) Assessment Form and address GS questions before receiving a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
