You are strongly encouraged not to bring your family members to Australia in the first six months of study. The first semester of study will be busy and demanding, and you will need to focus on your studies and settling in to Australia. It is better to attend the compulsory Introductory Academic Program and become established in your program of studies without the distraction of family responsibilities.
If you decide to bring your family to Australia, contact your Student Contact Officer for information about accommodation, as well as schooling and childcare for dependents. You should contact the Department of Home Affairs for information about visa requirements for accompanying family.
