Can my daughter get the student allowance in Australia?
If my 15-year-old daughter wants to go to university in Australia, can she apply for the student allowance? Does she have to live in the country for 2 years before applying?
Hello jojo, yes she would have to be here for 104 weeks before being eligible for the AusStudy and Youth Allowance. This document provides full details: http://www.centrelink.gov.au/internet/internet.nsf/filestores/co029_0909/$file/co029_0909en.pdf
And needs to be permanent resident.
