How to get your Australian student visa

Freeman Migration Services Australia Pty Ltd is an Australian Registered Migration Agent, and an Education Agent. We are situated in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia. As Education Agents we get a commission from your education provider, so we can organise your student visa application free of charge (providing you book your course through us). Remember though, you will need to have sufficient funds to pay the enrolment fee, the Australian Government visa application charge, and other costs such as translations, overseas couriers and health insurance. You will need to show that you have sufficient money to support yourself and any family members during your stay in Australia. There may also be a processing charge if one of our overseas offices is processing your documentation.
