Student Pass requirements

Postby singapore86 » Mon, 08 Jul 2013 4:31 am

Hi guys, I can't seem to find any general overview of what is needed for a student pass application. I wanted to know more details about the financial requirements, savings, etc. The college we're looking at is the uptrend college - a full time business diploma course. If my gf doesn't have the appropriate savings, then I will wire them to her.

There's no minimum financial or savings required for the student pass. Anyway, I never heard uptrend college before, why don't you try those famous school like sim, james cook uni or local poly? The student card approval will be higher.

Uptrend College is a rather new school and currently has a provisional EduTrust certificate. Whether or not it will be renewed remains to be seen. If it is not renewed, then all foreign students will lose their passes and one of the requirements is that the school must be EduTrust certified. So, I would have to agree with angeltan321 about finding a school with a stable or better track record. I am guessing that Uptrent is the cheapest and thereby the reason for your selection to try to game the system.
