If you are under 18 years of age you must have an approved Caregiver or a Guardian who is responsible for your well-being.
Who can be a Caregiver?
It is a requirement of Government student visa regulations that you either:
- live in Australia/New Zealand with your parent or legal custodian, or
- live in Australia/New Zealand with a relative over 21 years old nominated by your parent or custodian, or
- go into care arrangements that have been approved by Taylors College.
Taylors College Approved Caregivers
Taylors College has made arrangements with a number of organizations to provide Caregiver services.
They are responsible for meeting you at your accommodation after you arrive in Australia or New Zealand, helping you with opening a bank account, explaining public transport system and talking with you weekly. They should also meet with you every fortnight and provide a regular report to your parents.
If you wish use one of these organizations, please contact them directly.
