Will there be any International student visa changes if I change programs?
Yes, Changing programs can affect your student visa and in some circumstances you may be required to apply for a new visa.
If you are changing Bond degree programs, you don't need to apply for a new visa if you are studying at the same or higher Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) level or changing from an AQF level 10 course (doctoral degree) to an AQF 9 course (Masters degree).
If you are changing course at Bond to a lower AQF level course or to a non-AQF level course, you will need a new student visa.
If your new program extends past the date of your current student visa expiry date, you will be required to apply for a new student visa to cover the extension.
Please refer to the Your study situation has changed page on the Department of Home Affairs website.
