There are several entry requirements that you need to meet when applying for a student visa to study in Australia. These include meeting academic requirements, English language proficiency, providing evidence of funds to support your study, and purchasing overseas student health cover.
Australia typically has two main intakes for international students: the first is in February/March, and the second is in July. Some universities offer additional intakes in September or November. It is important to start the application process around 7-8 months prior to your desired intake, as universities generally take 4-6 weeks to process applications.
