GTE statement

If you intend to study abroad in a university program in Australia, you will need to satisfy the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) Criterion as part of your visa application. To do this, you need to provide a written statement of no more than 500 words, which convinces the immigration officer that you are worthy of a student visa.

How you should make a statement:

Use your own words to write a statement and give specific examples. Check that your statement covers next items:

  • Why you chose the program?

  • How the chosen program is relevant to your previous study?

  • Explain your previous study: qualification, duration of study, name of education provider.

  • Explain any gaps between your studies.

  • Write specifics if you have been employed.

  • Why you chose to study at specific university?

  • Why you chose to study in Australia and not in your home country?

  • How will the chosen program benefit you in the future?

  • How you intend to finance your studies in Australia?

  • Explain any immigration history.

  • What are your accommodation options?
