2 Can you tell me about your future plans?
The case officer wants to know about how your future plans connect to the field of study you have chosen. Also, whether or not you plan on returning to your home country after completing the course (let them know that you will return to your home country to proceed with your future/career plans).
What is your father’s occupation and annual income?
The information can be verified so make sure you let them know exactly the sum of your father’s annual income and occupation. You can provide bank statements.
What is the purpose of your trip?
The case officer is simply verifying the information you have provided in the application form. What you should do is provide a simple and well-articulated answer informing them that your intention is to pursue a degree/attend a study programme in Australia.
You should be careful when answering this question since you should provide an answer that is well-thought and elaborate. You should neatly list the reasons why Australia was your choice of study in comparison to the other options.
2 Can you provide documents of your previous education?
Make sure you’re equipped with the original documents of your previous education and qualifications.
Where is the university located?
You are expected to know where the university is located, so make sure not to stumble on this one.
1 What are your plans after completing your course in Australia?
When asked this question, the officer wants to know whether or not you plan to stay in Australia after finishing the course. However, the visa does not allow students to reside in Australia once they have finished their studies, so you should provide an answer that emphasizes your desire to return to your home country after completing the course.
What is the cost of the course?
Tell them the precise cost as it is provided in your Certificate Of Enrolment (COE).
The following is a sample list of some of the potential questions that might be asked in an interview. Please keep in mind that this list is only a sample based on our experience with partner visa applications and interviews, and DHA reserves the right to ask any appropriate question. If you believe a question is inappropriate, especially if it involves intimate details of your relationship, you have the right to object and tell the interviewer, politely, that you believe that question is inappropriate.
For some partner interview applicants and sponsors, the Australian Department of Home Affairs (DHA) will conduct an interview either in person or by phone. The interview is designed to probe each person’s knowledge about the relationship and about his/her partner, in an effort to help determine whether a relationship is genuine.
Why have you chosen this particular course?
Make sure you communicate your desire to attend the course and provide information on why it is important for your future career. You want to prove to them that the course is not simply an excuse to move to Australia.
2 Tell me something about your family?
Provide brief and concise information on your immediate family. The officer is just verifying the information you have submitted in the application form.
2 Why did you change your field of study?
In case the course you have chosen does not relate to the previous courses you have taken, the officer will be interested in knowing the reason for this switch of interests. Give them a rational answer as to why you have chosen to change your field of study/interest.
