Closer Look Into Guardian Foster Parent

A Closer Look Into Foster Parents and Guardians

If you have read what is available on our main page, you can see information in regards to foster parents and guardians. The question students are asking is, “who is included in this category, and what does this have to do with your study in Australia?”

Are your foster parents intending to take care of you while you are studying in Australian schools? Some students we assist say, “Nah, I’m big enough to do this on my own.” However, the legal age for an adult in Australia is 18 years old. If your age is under 18, you are still considered to be underage by the government, and will need to be under the care of your foster parents or guardian/guardians.

Who can be called your foster parent or guardian?

You can choose who will act as your guardian while you are studying in Australia. Whether it is your parent, a foster parent, legal guardian or another family member from your home country or a who currently resides in Australia.

However, if it not possible for your family to be your guardian, an Australian education institution providing a family in Australia which will act as a foster parent / guardian until you are 18 years old. And do not worry, because all the families are appointed have participated in test and background check before a guardian can be a candidate for prospective students. You can contact us for more details.

What are the requirements for becoming a foster parent to a student?

Some things to consider include:

  • You would need to fill out the nomination form;
  • Pay application fees;
  • Submit your guardian visa application to be able to come to Australia (if you are not already here);
  • Understand the visa conditions, such as : Guardians can not work while in Australia.

If the student completes their study and their visa expires, the guardian visa will automatically expire as well.

PS: If you are under the age of 14, you should be accompanied by your immediate family (your parents, uncles / aunts, or grandparents), and can not use the family of an Australian institution.
