Overseas students

All overseas students enrolled in Victorian schools can undertake structured workplace learning as part of their learning program. When a structured workplace learning arrangement is being made for an overseas student, all of the terms and conditions of the visa held by the student must be complied with, as must all the requirements of Ministerial Order 1412.

As workplace learning is an important component of the school curriculum and a student’s learning program, structured workplace learning undertaken by overseas students does not count towards work entitlement hours of the visa held by the student.

For further information, please contact the department’s International Education Division on +61 3 7022 1000 or
