Default Degree to Diploma

Hey Guys,

Need some help for a close friend of mine who came to Australia on a 4yrs Degree in IT, have completed his first semester but its really expensive and he's barely meeting ends after paying for studies.

Can he change to a diploma of a different trade? Like cooking or something easy like that which has low fee?

Its urgent guys.

Any help will be appreciated.

Changing courses

If you want to change to a new course at the same level of qualification, you do not need to apply for a new student visa unless your current visa is about to expire.

If you change your education provider at any time you must contact the department and provide a Confirmation of Enrolment certificate from your new education provider.

Changing level of qualification

If you want to change your level of qualification, you will need to apply for a new student visa because your visa subclass will change.
