In the past student visas to study in Australia were categorised in different types based on the type of study program. Now the process has been simplified so that all international students can apply for the same visa – the Student Visa (Subclass 500).
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) grants visas to students who meet the following conditions:

Your AL is measured according to the course you want to study and your country of origin, with the result determining the specific requirements you will have to meet to be granted a visa.
Course Acceptance - You must already have been accepted to study an undergraduate degree in Australia.
English Language Proficiency - All students are required to prove that they have the appropriate English language skills for their course. Students with a low Assessment Level score will only have to meet the conditions set by their university, but other applicants must prove evidence of their proficiency.
