Am I a Domestic or International Student?

Many things, including entry requirements, differ for international and local (or domestic) students.

 You are considered a Local/Domestic student if you are:

  • a citizen of Australia;
  • a citizen of New Zealand
  • a dual citizen of Australia and any other country;
  • a Permanent Resident of Australia; or
  • on a Permanent Humanitarian Visa.

These criteria apply even if you completed your schooling outside Australia.

 You are considered an international student if you are:

  • a citizen of any country except Australia or New Zealand;
  • a temporary resident (visa status) of Australia;
  • a permanent resident (visa status) of New Zealand.

 Dual citizenship

If you have Australian or New Zealand citizenship and citizenship of another country, you are considered to be a local student – even if you completed your schooling outside Australia.
